Kurt Zdesar’s “loud and dark” haunts promise a culinary journey from Tokyo to Lima with some “brill cocktails” thrown in. It’s “great fun” and the Nikkei food is an “interesting fusion” too, if also a pricey one. Since 2022, the London presence has doubled with the addition of a Marylebone branch to join the first Soho one. It also has six siblings in North America and a couple in the Middle East.

“Love the spin on the Peruvian x Japanese dishes” – Kurt Zdesar’s Nikkei concept fueled by its ‘Tokyo to Lima’ cocktail menu is growing like topsy, expanding from its Soho home (undergoing ‘an exciting restyle’ as of summer 2022) to Marylebone Village in January 2022, with forthcoming debuts in Doha, Riyadh and San Francisco as part of a plan to expand to 20 sites globally in the next 5 years. The vibe is as energetic as its expansion plans: “too noisy for the seniors in our group, but all the youngsters loved it!”

"Food was good, but the restaurant plays thumping loud and monotonously repetitive club music that completely spoilt the dining experience. "
