Originally due to open in Spring 2020 in the premises that formerly housed Providores, a second branch for high-end Japanese Taka.
Harden's survey result
Views diverged this year on this modern Marylebone Japanese – an exponent of ‘Shun’ (meaning ‘food should only be eaten when it is at its best and at the height of its season’). Fans say it’s a “lovely” place offering “novel and delicious” flavours from its wide-ranging, funky menu (‘rock and rolls’, ‘plant-based power’, ‘raw to the core’, ‘robata’…) – sceptics say that it’s “overpriced, with miniscule portions”.
With the demise of the original Mayfair Taka, this October 2020 spin-off – on the Marylebone site of Providores (RIP) – is now the sole survivor of the duo. Amidst a scene set by low-key woody decor, it serves a more-than-just-sushi menu also incorporating Japanese-style tapas, robata dishes and mochi flatbreads.
For 32 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).
