Japanese Restaurants in Notting Hill
1. Tonkotsu Japanese restaurant in Notting Hill 7 Blenheim Cr - W11
“Casual and inexpensive, but no compromise on the standards” – this Japanese noodle chain has become a firm favourite in London’s “competitive” ramen market, with 14 branches (and counting). “I can’t speak highly enough of the quality of ramen here, absolutely packed full of flavour and at a really good price.” The name is taken from the pork broth used, and the noodles are made daily in-house and cooked, it is said, for precisely 32 seconds.
2. Sumi Japanese restaurant in Notting Hill 157 Westbourne Grove - W11
On the Notting Hill fringe site that was Andina Picanteria (RIP), Endo Kazutoshi – the man behind White City’s ultra-luxe sushi mecca, Endo at Rotunda – launched this elegant new sushi haunt (named after his mum!) in December 2020, before Covid-19 altered his plans. Morphed quickly into a click-and-collect operation, it’s since returned to being the upmarket neighbourhood perch that was originally intended. On early reports, even those who find it “rather expensive” say it’s “very good” and others would go further – “sublime!”
3. Los Mochis Fusion restaurant in Kensington 2 Farmer St - W8
On the site just off Notting HIll that was for over half a century Geales (RIP) – this new urban-grunge taqueria and tequileria hangout is the antithesis of the traditional English fish ’n’ chips restaurant that preceded it, and opened post-lockdown in late Spring 2021. No survey feedback as yet on its funky sounding Mexican/Japanese menu, but in August 2021 The Daily Mail’s Tom Parker Bowles was grudgingly impressed: “far better than expected…[for] good tacos and sashimi, cracking cocktails and a merry night out, you’re very much in luck. Los Mochis is a blast”.
