“Exceptional food and an approach that’s attentive and friendly but never overbearing or distant” wins nothing but high praise for Jun Tanaka’s “consistently excellent and very enjoyable” HQ, on Fitzrovia’s restaurant row. “It was closed from summer last year until mid March 2023 owing to a fire – post re-opening, the cuisine is of just the same standard as before”.

“They don’t need to try too hard” at Jun Tanaka’s “relaxed” but extremely accomplished Fitzrovia fixture. “Everything that’s on the plate is there for a reason… a good reason!” – his “very high-quality” cuisine is “very well-balanced” and service is “charming”. Top Menu Tips – “seared mackerel with pickles works well, beef cheeks is a signature, and turbot head is wonderful”. BREAKING NEWS: In summer 2022, a fire closed the restaurant, with no reopening date set as of mid August 2022.

Jun Tanaka’s brilliant Mediterranean-inspired cooking is showcased at its best at his casual six-year-old HQ in Fitzrovia. It’s “notably good value” for cooking of this “excellence” and “variety of flavours” – the sort of place you’ll “definitely go back to again”. Tanaka has done some TV but is relatively unsung – if he was a little better known, this place would be a household name.

“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”.
