    Great food, however, the service definitely needs improvement. We've re not pretentious brunchers but the poor attention to the customer definitely affected our experience.

    The food is amazing but the service is a bit crap.

    Love Love Love this place! Cool underground dining with a great atmosphere. The staff are super friendly and the service is pretty quick. The hot chicken wings are to die for here! Pork belly is fab!

    Starters: the fried squid (great), the chips'n'dip (good), and the korean chicken wings (SO GOOD). For mains, the duck leg (YUM), and the half-chicken (SO GOOD). The buns were great too. We recommend.

    Korean chicken wings are delicious but almost impossible to eat. Buns themselves are OK, braised ox tail and kimchi fillings were bland and not a big fan of self-assembly in a restaurant.

    The Buns are delicious! As a starter I can highly recommend the Tuna Tostada.

    If you get the crispy duck, ask for the old sauce, not the new stuff.

    Infusion Japanese; Although it's casual, the food is absolutely great! good quality and well presented. Try the buns with your choice of meat, yellowtail sashimi and leave space for dessert.

    There's a great value express menu for before 6pm and after 10pm. 2 courses/3 courses and a drink £19/£22. Frozen yuzu margaritas ask the way!

    Lots of vegetarian options here. Highly recommend the chips&dip, grilled cauliflower,avocado sushi, the miso aubergine & the portobello mushroom with the buns. Really good food. Very cool concept.

    Food was ok, service was good. Basement setup that is always busy but wasn't too stuffy. Lively noisy atmosphere.

    One of my favourite places to eat in London. Amazing food. Try the sushi and yellow tail ceviche with coriander and chili granité. Duck and Buns is great. As is pork belly. And lamb. And chicken!

    Crispy pork belly is the best combination to the buns from my experiences. The duck is a bit dry to my taste. The kobe beef is flavourful, however still chewy to be a good quality kobe beef

    The meat is alright but nothing sensational, the service was rubbish and it's hugely overpriced for what it is; the complete opposite of the Japanese izakaya it's based on. Very disappointing.

    Separate from the food, the bathrooms here have essentially cartoons of naked women, and one has a depiction of a woman being raped. Completely unacceptable and has me leaving on a bad note.

    Me and my friend both had the sweet aubergine- it was really nice and had a lovely texture. However- I recommend splitting- it was really heavy and they don't do take away.

    Great food, although overpriced considering its competitors. Fab cocktails, delightful staff, chilled atmosphere and generally nice environment. Amazing toilet walls.

    The kitchen is very heavy handed with salt. The fried squid was way too salty. Further, the miso aubergine was slathered with so much miso that it overwhelmed the beautifully grilled aubergine below.

    Sunday brunch has two options: the costlier one is £10 extra and gets you champagne instead of prosecco, and greater choices of dishes. Vegetarian / vegan options available on request.

    Food was delicious, especially the soft shell crab. Mains were likewise very tasty, I had salmon and the light fluffy buns were beautiful. Price was just too much though!! Even inc unlimited prosecco

    Somewhat overpriced. Ceviche was watery and insipid, pork belly bun fine, but even the express menu felt expensive for the quantity and quality.

    Went for the wagyu teriyaki and duck which was great. Wings, soft shell crab and squid were definitely tasty. S'mores were overrated. Got caught up I presentation for dessert but not worth it.

    The Niigata beer is great — sort of like a mix between an ale and a wheat beer.
