Harden's says

Marylebone's innovative Japanese restaurant has opened a second branch in South Kensington this May. Chef Tomonari Chiba is properly international these days, with noodle bars in Tokyo and a Dinings outlet in a Tel-Aviv hotel.

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.


“Don’t be put off by the simplicity of the dining room”“a noisy concrete basement” (although you can also sit at the ground floor bar): Tomonari Chiba’s sushi and other Japanese fare is “genius”, albeit “spectacularly expensive” at his original Marylebone venture of over ten years standing. In May 2017 he opened a considerably swankier offshoot in the beautiful and chichi premises vacated by Toto’s (RIP) which seem likely to become the dominant member of the duo hereafter. It features a mashup of Japanese and Western ingredients and ideas – early press reviews are mixed.
