Kurt Zdesar’s “loud and dark” haunts promise a culinary journey from Tokyo to Lima with some “brill cocktails” thrown in. It’s “great fun” and the Nikkei food is an “interesting fusion” too, if also a pricey one. Since 2022, the London presence has doubled with the addition of a Marylebone branch to join the first Soho one. It also has six siblings in North America and a couple in the Middle East.

Loud and lively late-night Nikkei (Peruvian-Japanese fusion) haunt that’s “a great spot for watching Soho” – and the food is “awesome” too. “You have to book in advance because it’s usually very full”. For a more wallet-friendly option earlier in the day, order a bento box with “a little bit of everything – highly recommended”. In September 2021 the brand announced a second branch in Marylebone Village, to open in January 2022.

“Exquisite food and cocktails”“an amazing blend of flavours danced across my tongue!” – and “a great vibe (particularly for late-night dining)” help make this Japanese-Peruvian fusion haunt in Soho a “fun and buzzy” (if “loud”, especially when the music’s cranked up) destination for a night on the tiles.

"Lived up to expectations and hugely enjoyed the experience. The food was exceptionally good. Access to the hip loos was a challenge until I found the right button to press! Nearly too late!!"

"Nicely prepared creative flavorful fusion of Peruvian and Japanese. Atmosphere probably would have been buzzy and fun on another day but was fairly flat on Sunday evening. Service simply atrocious - order glass of wine did not arrive until we reminded 15 minutes (no apology); had to beg for pudding menu; bill included 4 items from another table…. "
