‘High-grade wagyu, supplied by Zen-Noh, Japan’s agricultural cooperative’ was an important part of the raison d’être for this Mayfair five-year-old, set up by the organisation as a showcase for Japanese ingredients. It continues to be a central menu feature, but – with the involvement of London importers Atariya Foods Group in the restaurant’s management since 2020 – there’s now more emphasis on the sushi and sashimi for which Atariya is known. Even those who say a meal here is “incredibly expensive” rate it as “good all-round”.

Owned by Zen-Noh, Japan’s agricultural cooperative, and specialising in high-grade Japanese wagyu, alongside sushi, sashimi, tempura and other more creative fare, this Mayfair four-year-old is centred around an open counter kitchen, controlled by chef Daisuke Hayashi. Fans are “keen for it to be better known” saying its ownership “really shows up in the superb food”, but it still has a surprisingly tiny following, perhaps because it’s “very expensive (probably too expensive)”.

It has impeccable credentials – it’s backed by Japan’s largest agricultural co-op, ZeN-Noh, and overseen by two of Japan’s more famous chefs – but this Mayfair two-year-old inspires precious little feedback. Such as there is says the food’s really “quite good” but that the overall formula doesn’t quite hang together – “maybe they’re not quite sure what sort of restaurant this should be. Is it all about its wagyu, or is it a kappo kaiseki place [a multi-course meal, where the selection is left to the chef]… or is it just one of those bland Mayfair places for hedgies to spend obscene amounts of money…?”

For 31 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).
