“A top tip for sushi and other interesting Japanese dishes” – this 11-year-old group from Israeli-born Ohad Kastro offers an “excellent quality and variety of options” that are “so much better than standard rivals” – and each branch “manages to feel like a comfy ‘local’, despite there being others around town”.

These “busy and bustling fusion restaurants” offer a “wide choice” of East Asian dishes, headed by “Japanese-style favourites” – including various sushi or sashimi options and miso black cod – that are “competently and surprisingly well prepared”. Israeli-born founder Ohad Kastro celebrates the 10th anniversary of the original launch in Primrose Hill this year; branches in Soho, Marylebone, Chelsea and Barnes have followed.

“Consistently good food from an appealing menu” has earned a solid following for this Asian-fusion chain with branches in Soho, Marylebone, Primrose Hill, Chelsea and Barnes. Opinion is split on the relative merits of its two main offerings – all agree on the “terrific sushi” but others register both pros and cons for the hot dishes.

“Punching above their weight in terms of flavour and presentation” – this “buzzy” quartet of “medium-priced” Japanese/Asian fusion “pit-stops” are “fab little places” for a high-quality refuelling (the new Barnes site is “perfect before a film at the Olympic across the road”).

For 33 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).
