Harden's says

An izakaya-style Japanese eatery from Birmingham restaurateur Sonny Huang.

Summary

Izakaya-style Soho newcomer, which opened in Spring 2019, making a feature of the robata skewers for which it is named, and whose other attractions include bao buns, sushi and cocktails. It opened too late to inspire much in the way of survey feedback, but the general social media buzz about the place is upbeat.

"The lunch menu offers excellent value, food is very tasty and portion sizes are generous. There's ample variety and everything I tasted was of a high quality. The venue gets busy so can get a little loud as tables are tightly packed but I'd highly recommend it for Japanese food in the area, especially on the lunch menu"

"I have reduced the score for service as we had to ask for a finger bowl after the meal. This should have been provided automatically because the bao buns are quite messy to eat. I understand that the restaurant is acquiring a hot towel cabinet."

"A modern Japanese restaurant specialising in charcoal-grilled food. The food was exquisite and the service charming and helpful. A real find."

Reviewed 3 months, 22 days ago

"Japanese-seasoned meat and veg from a fierce open grill or fried, quality good, some portions ungenerous. Dark and rammed with young people, very noisy when we were there, but you get dreary narcissists everywhere... Service was attentive, but one of our orders took an age to come and the waiter didn't seem bothered."
