“Mouth-watering food”“French-style with a difference” – wows almost all visitors to Jun Tanaka’s “informal fine-dining” joint in Fitzrovia. “The food is taken seriously but the atmosphere is grounded and relaxed”“when I want a solid and thoughtful meal, I go here”. Better still, it’s “a bit of a bargain for the quality”, and there’s “huge value in the wine list for a Michelin restaurant”.

“It’s all about the food” – you could call it “casual Michelin” – at Jun Tanaka’s Fitzrovia HQ, which provides a “relaxed”, “buzzing” (and quite “romantic”) environment in which to enjoy his “innovative” and sometimes “amazing” culinary creations. Quibbles? – “it’s quite a difficult menu to get your mind around” (“we were told it was small plates but were still asked to choose separate courses each”); and “although it’s a pretty space it can feel a bit cramped”.

Jun Tanaka’s “consistently brilliant food – simple but immaculately presented, with amazing flavours” – wins rave reviews for his “shabby-chic-meets-modern-industrial” Fitzrovia yearling, also praised also for its “lovely” staff. Having said that, there is a minority who feel it has been hyped: “it was good, but after all the raves, I somehow expected more”.

For 30 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).
