“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.

“One of the best proper Japanese restaurants in London” – both the calm and “easily overlooked” Mayfair original and its “secret hideaway” Knightsbridge offshoot offer “excellent” sushi and sashimi backed up by a “very good range of izakaya-style dishes” and an interesting sake selection.

"Perfectly fresh raw fish, light and crunchy tempura, fresh hot salty edamame, flavoursome sushi, and great wine with attentive and flexible service. Slightly odd texture on the gyoza skins"
