Owner's description

Robun is a celebration of authentic Japanese food and drink, specialising in a modern take on Yakiniku – the art of grilling meat, seafood and vegetables over a traditional charcoal fire. The menu also incorporates sushi and sashimi, tempura, gyoza and bao buns, all served alongside an unparalleled list of sake, Japanese whisky and cocktails.

The restaurant is a tribute to Japanese author, Kanagaki Robun, who wrote the seminal book, Seiyo ryoritsu in 1872. The book took inspiration from Western barbecue and introduced the concept of Yakiniku to Japan.

Set in the heart of Bath, Robun offers an informal yet refined environment to share freshly prepared sharing plates and pairings.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
