“Like stepping into the sort of reality TV series where people apply tons of make-up and not so many clothes”, Richard Caring’s Mayfair seafood scene has an “amazing ambience”, although it can be “incredibly loud – perfect if you want to eat in a nightclub” (“my teenage daughters love it!”) On the downside, the luxurious sushi and seafood is “by numbers” and prices are “stratospheric” (“shocking really, are they having a laugh?”) In autumn 2021, the brand crossed the Atlantic with an opening in its true spiritual home – Miami – where the USP is the largest collection of Dom Perignon in the US.

“Let your friends know you’ve been, and they’ll ask about the clientele before wanting to know about the food…” – Richard Caring’s notorious, LA-style, bling-fest in Mayfair (which reportedly cost £15m to fit out) is most “definitely a place for those eager to see and be seen”. Fans also believe its luxurious menu of Asian-inspired fish and seafood (heavy on funky sushi, tempura, and gyoza) is plain “awesome” too. But to a large proportion of reporters, it’s “awful – just awful” – exacting “extortionate” prices to deliver “some weird-and-not-always-felicitous flavour combinations” to “a horrific stew of Mayfair types”.

“Crammed with people taking selfies, dodgy-looking businessmen and hapless, concierge-victim tourists”, Richard Caring’s “bling bling” Mayfair venture is a bad case of “too much spent on the decor and not enough concentration on the food”; and, with its huge prices and “appalling service (unless you’re spending £000’s)”, it can end up feeling like “a horrendous rip-off and an all-round horrible experience”. More upbeat reporters do find its luxurious seafood format “memorable… just best enjoyed at someone else’s expense!”. Top Tip – “the best ambience is at lunch, at dinner it changes quite dramatically… not in the most positive way”.

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).

"Went for lunch, on the off chance with being in the area, and overall it was fine for food. It's quite a glitzy and more of a place for cocktails than a beer. "
