D&D Group's third Leeds venture, a Japanese/Pan-Asian restaurant, with Ben Orpwood (Zuma, Sexy Fish) at the helm; at the top of the new Victoria Gate development, Issho will share a roof terrace with another D&D stablemate, 59th Street.
Harden's survey result
“A really good all-round experience”, this snazzy five-year-old above the Trinity shopping centre is one of four D&D London venues in Leeds, and its first Japanese venture anywhere. The menu majors on sushi and hot dishes from the robata grill to be shared – ‘Issho’ is Japanese for ‘together’ – and there’s a glamorous cocktail bar, Kori, with large choices of sake and Japanese whisky.
“They have evolved the culinary experience” at D&D London’s splashy Japanese three-year-old, atop Trinity shopping centre, and featuring a “superb terrace”; nowadays “the food is just beautiful” (albeit “expensive”) and “they also have an amazing cocktail bar”.
“They have evolved the culinary experience” at D&D London’s splashy Japanese two-year-old, atop Trinity shopping centre, and featuring a “superb terrace”; nowadays “the food is just beautiful” (albeit “expensive”) and “they also have an amazing cocktail bar”.
“I must confess I thought it was going to be a classic style-over-substance place – actually it has style AND substance!” – D&D London’s sexy looking yearling on the rooftop of the Trinity shopping centre with terrace and sleek Kori Bar for cocktails wins nothing but praise for its “great Japanese small-plate dining possibilities” which encompass tempura, sushi, robatayaki, and so on.
For 31 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).
