    Not bad but there are better sushi places out there...

    Good service, the Wagyu gyozas were great as the Waguy nigiri, the hamachi jalapeno is a must, nice sashimi moriawase, shrimp tempura maki was oiishi and the sesame fondant was more than sugoi!

    Totally not worth it. Won't be going back again

    Loungy restaurant. A lot of space between the tables. Good quality food. They could serve bigger portions though ;)

    Food-wise, it is definitely not worth the £39 (for the Infinity Brunch menu without drinks). The hot food was decent, but the sushi quality was really lacking. And there is no "Infinity"/buffet

    If you fancy a casual Japanese food or you are a picky foodie for Japanese food with less money, go to DOZO in soho, you won't regret!

    Thus, for fusion or high quality food, I would highly recommend ROKA where you can take your partner to enjoy the great and creative Japanese food and excellent services! Even with less price may be

    The environment is super noisy, I actually don't mind have dinner in a lounge or bar if that restaurant is very small. But if you have enough space. Can you manage a little bit

    Iris Tao · June 30, 2015
  • Iris T.

    All the staff looked super busy that they could even not notice you! Some of staff's English was terrible. Can't believe they are working in a £££ restaurant.

    Iris Tao · June 30, 2015

    Also, the tofu in hot pot was absolutely disaster! I don't believe Japanese eat that in Japan, even though you may say it's 'fusion'. Ok sushi, although we ordered the most expensive one, not special

    Iris Tao · June 30, 2015
  • Iris T.

    Nothing good there I have to say and I won't visit again if I can choose. We spend about £130 for 3 people, but it seems we had NOTHING. The sashimi was quite little and not fusion/creative at all.

    It's a place for drinks but not for food.

    Great place to enjoy a sunny day in the middle of London :)

    Sushi Sunday brunch to live and die for. Tips: take a rich and generous friend. Don't eat for at least 12 hours before. Encourage the staff to ply you with champagne.

    The lunch set menu is reasonably price, ok quality and nice idea for a group / occasion, as it comes with a cocktail but skip dessert - awful wasabi meringue

    Jessica Young · December 1, 2014

    Mixed veggie tempura, salmon sashimi, aqua kyoto black cod, crab tempura roll, salmon roll topped with lovster and miso bisque 😊☺️

    Great soft shell crab rolls and rooftop bar

    You MUST try the wagyu beef and foie gras maki rolls - Amazing! Simply the best thing on the menu! £34 for 8 pieces! Yuma !

    Don't get me wrong, it's a great place to experience the high life, but it was SO SO much better. Food is still incredible but the service slightly lacking, fingers crossed it goes back to as it was.

    Very nice bar and rooftop terrace.

    Don't kid yourself over the name. Nothing like a Kyoto bar and lacking any decent service

    Blech! Sushi Sunday brunch is great if you like euro-trashing and want to pretend you are eating Japanese. Otherwise, if you are checking in, quickly change your mind and leave.

    This place takes trendy seriously and there’s a good chance that the food will be better dressed than you. The view is what makes it worthwhile. Bring a pack of Vogue cigs and you’ll fit right in.

    Awesome rooftop and great barman!

    Best sushi ever. Ask for the contemporary plate!

    I've been here before and really enjoyed it. This time it was a bit too noisy. Maybe it's because it was a Friday night. Music was way too loud . Food was good . Tempura shrimp and teriyaki chicken

    Very average food. Empty on Monday night

    Nice roof terrace bar. Staff are a bit stuck up though if you are into that type of thing .

    Grab a cocktail at the bar, you wont regret it!

    The bar leads to an indoor Japanese restaurant decorated in silk and charcoal. The crowd throughout looks the part too. More locals in the know than tourists clutching guidebooks. Read more

    Ouch! Be prepared for appalling service. Quite possibly the rudest I've ever experienced. Such a shame as the roof terrace is fantastic

  • Sarah B.

    Great food, order more than you think you'll eat. Service is shocking. Stick to specifics & not platters. Sushi platter was woeful. Other 11 dishes were fabulous.

    Just introduced a dress code. Really stupid for a bar/ restaurant in Soho. Pretentious and would not go back.

    Just turn up on a busy night without a reservation and they'll seat you at the sushi bar.

    Cocktails and the sushi are amazingly creative concoctions

    Kyoto bloom cocktail is awesome!

    Chris Murphy · December 18, 2010
  • Harriet M.

    The Rose li cocktail is amazing

    Harriet Mears · December 9, 2010

    The food is pretty good; after all, it is an expensive, upmarket chain. But it has a curiously outmoded feel and doesnt seduce like Nobu or Zuma. Read more · September 10, 2010
