Summary

“Exceptional” Japanese-fusion cuisine still wins very consistent praise for this svelte, “very buzzy” Knightsbridge haunt, whose appeal – in its fifteenth year – still stacks up well. OK, there’s some “tossing around of black credit cards” by its eurotrashy following, but this can make for “awesome people-watching”, and even though “it’s very expensive, it’s worth it”.

Summary

“The big wristwatch brigade” are out in force, especially at the “very cool bar” of this swish haunt, which is “always buzzing with the Knightsbridge set”. Its Japanese-fusion morsels are “truly sensational” too, but service has seemed more “inattentive” of late, and “the bill can leave you feeling flat”.

Summary

“It may be the haunt of hedgies and wealthy Euros”, but this “always humming” Japanese-fusion hang-out, near Harrods, is “so goddamn good”! A few critics do feel “it’s way too pricey”, but most reporters are blown away by its “spectacular” fare and “terrific” vibe.

Summary

“If you can cope with the fact that all the customers look like Tamara Ecclestone”, what’s not to like about this “jaw-droppingly” pricey Knightsbridge glamour-magnet? – the Japanese-fusion fare “may not be classic gastronomy, but it’s absolutely wonderful”.
