The “mish-mash of very tasty plates” can still win praise these “fun”, Japanese-inspired izakayas in Chelsea and Marble Arch. The odd fear is raised that “it’s gone really downhill” since it was sold by founder, Aussie chef Scott Hallsworth, in 2017, particularly at the W2 branch, but the ratings in SW3 are pretty consistent.

“A great punky Australian/Asian mashup” characterises the menu at these “fun” izakaya-style venues, where “stunning grill dishes” are the highlights of the “funky” fare. On the downside they’re “not all that cheap” and “loud”. In July 2017 (post survey) founder Scott Hallsworth sold out to his business partners, so change may be afoot.

“Thrilling flavours” from “a wide ranging” Japanese menu again inspire rave reviews for Scott Hallsworth’s “hip, modern, trendy, but unpretentious” izakaya-style haunts, which are “a real favourite for a fun night out”. They’re “not for the hard of hearing” though, and SW3 is “a bit trashy” and “pure Chelsea” for some tastes.
