* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Marvellous, exquisite Japanese food”, including “super-fresh fish” and “the best sushi in town that won’t break your wallet”, is served at this “very professional” Mayfair outfit. Popular with Vogue staffers, who call it the ‘Condé Nast canteen’, it has a “cosy” offshoot buried in a luxurious corner of Knightsbridge.

“Classic Japanese – not trendy but lovely and with good-quality food” sums up the appeal of this pair in Mayfair (long-established) and off Knightsbridge (quite new). The “awesome sushi and very good cooked dishes” are accompanied by “great sake” (“do try the sake flights”). They’re “not cheap, and like many Japanese restaurants the ambience is functional rather than funky”.

“Excellent sushi, sashimi and tempura” are the stars of the show at this “long-established and quite smart – though not unduly expensive – Mayfair Japanese” (with an offshoot near Harrods), which boasts a “great sake list, too”. The “quiet” original is “a civilised retreat from the fray of Regent Street”, and its chichily-located Knightsbridge branch is in a similar vein.

For 30 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).
