A new Japanese robatayaki grill restaurant set over two floors (with a basement bar, Zoku, in the works), inspired by the 'new age' izakayas and street food of Tokyo. The site was previously Ichibuns (RIP).

Clubby, three-floor ‘Japanese Super Diner’ in Chinatown that opened in 2018, with regular DJs on the dim-lit, basement level, and boatloads of retro-Japanese pop-memorabilia throughout. Alongside cocktails it provides burgers, udon and sushi – recommended strongly by some reporters, but “neither here nor there” to others.

“Great Japanese-style decor” adds pizzazz to this energetically designed three-floor newcomer in Chinatown, complete with clubby basement (with DJs). Feedback is still quite limited, but its menu of ramen, Japanese spring rolls and wagyu beef burgers was mostly highly rated.

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).
