* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

A short walk from the Japanese Embassy, this veteran family-run operation in a Mayfair backstreet offers “immaculately prepared food” and “superb service” in a “calm and grown-up atmosphere”. It opened in 1978, well before Japanese cuisine became fashionable.

This “classic Japanese stalwart” has offered an authentic taste of Tokyo in a Mayfair backstreet for 45 years – and is always “full of Japanese consular employees” from the nearby embassy. Top Tip – “go for the good-value lunchtime set menu”.

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).

"Family run japanese with all the favorites on the menu, nothing outstanding but all very well done and presented. Service is very friendly but the restaurant lacks atmosphere."
