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 three-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…?”

“Layers of flavour and umami” reveal the magic of kaiseki cuisine at renowned Japanese chef Yoshihiro Murata’s Mayfair yearling (backed by Japan’s largest agricultural co-op), which, for its disciples, delivers dishes that are “beyond fresh, and raise the pure essence of simple ingredients like yuzu and matcha to the divine”. Natch, it’s “very pricey”, which perhaps is why it still hasn’t built a huge fanbase.

“Superb Japanese cuisine using the highest quality ingredients” is what you’d expect from Yoshihiro Murata’s Mayfair newcomer (on the former site of Sakura, RIP) – not just because he himself has many Michelin gongs, but because his backer is Japan’s largest agricultural co-operative (“you can try a true Japanese Wagyu here”). It’s “expensive” naturally, but while press and food-cognoscenti reviews have been restrained, all reporters are wowed by “fabulous tastes” and “dishes that are good for breaking the ice, as they look amazing!”
