Harden's says

Gordon Ramsay replaced his flagship Maze with this restaurant in the summer of 2019; he recruited former Sexy Fish exec chef Ben Orpwood to head up the kitchen. The restaurant, which cost over £5 million to refurbish, is to emulate “the drinking dens of Thirties Tokyo and the Far East”.

On the site that was Maze (RIP), the f-word chef launched this Mayfair pan-Asian fixture in summer 2019 with the aim of emulating ‘the drinking dens of Thirties Tokyo and the Far East’… only to unleash a social media storm about cultural appropriation. Our initial diner reports are quite mixed, and skewed to the negative: “basically anything by Gordon Ramsey is overpriced and only funds his narcissism”.

Gordon Ramsay replaced his ailing, former heavy-hitter ‘maze’ with this Pan-Asian Mayfair yearling in the summer of 2019 – his first opening in the capital in the last five years (and most notable for provoking a Twitter-storm of abuse about cultural appropriation seeing as the chap he recruited to head the kitchen is the thoroughly un-Asian, ex-Sexy Fish executive chef, Ben Orpwood). The restaurant, which cost over £5 million to refurbish, aims to emulate ‘the drinking dens of Thirties Tokyo and the Far East’ (not the first time we’ve heard that one) but opened too late for survey feedback.

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).
