    An incredible dining experience ! Every dish was spot on, very original and full on unexpected flavours perfectly balanced. Flames at the table sushi was a highlife, as was the chocolate crepe

    Great Japanese:Peruvian fusion! The Nikkei sashimi and sea bass ceviche is a must! The aubergine miso with apricot and puffed soba was surprisingly delicious! So yummy, there was no room for dessert.

    Incredible food!! Best fusion restaurant I've been to in London so far. To save money, go early for a pre-theatre menu. Only 25£ pp and includes 3 (big!) courses and a glass of cava. 😋🍾 Enjoy!!

    We had the bento box for brunch. Everything was delicious, except the chicken and rice. Ambience is trendy (a bit much) but reminds me of sushi samba in NYC when it first opened in the early 2000.

    Get the soft-shell crab maki rolls, flavour out of this world. Delish sashimi as well with a variety of dips; I’d recommend pairing the tuna with the truffle sauce.

    Nice quiet place with interesting fusion Japanese/Peruvian menu. Would definitely recommend for a good chatty dinner with great drinks and ceviche style food.

    Best Peruvian fusion in London. Fantastic food, music and cocktails. Stay away from the sushi and focus on the Peruvian side. Pisco peach is a must! Caution: music can be too loud if you are over 40

    Amongst sautée section, hake and truffle is to die for! Sushi close to Japanese standards and cocktails are also super strong! (Hint: Lychee picante 💜) Top.

    Pricey but totally worth it! Salmon picante roll, gambas salvajes, nasu miso, tentaculos de pulpo were all amazing. Rather than 4-5 dishes per person, take around 4-6 between the two to be full :)

    Must try the miso eggplant with dried apricot and puff buckwheat and also the corn fritters. You can get lucky to get a seat at the bar if there is two or less people. Even if it is fully booked.

    Japanese/peruvian fusion in soho - small plate sharing concept - slightly OTT decor and loud music but the food and cocktails are delicious gyoza, pork belly, short rib and sushi rolls are a must try!

    Great vibe. Citrus sake is interesting. Nigiri platters (aburi as well), hamachi with yuzu, lobster tempura, passion fruit brulee...the service is impeccable.

    Been here 25+ times
    All time favourite in london. For appetisers go for the tuna tacos, nikkei sashimi, tostadita and sato maki. For mains always go with the lomo al parrila(beef fillet) or the chicken miso.

    Fun vibe to go and grab a a drink at the bar. Very mixed crowd and amazing graffiti artwork. Perfect for pisco sours, the food is not amazing for ceviche go best to Ceviche down the street!

    Sushi and pork belly is a must try! The pork belly is juicy is in a rich sauce. Nice atmosphere, not ideal if you want a quiet meal

    The tasting menu is excellent, packed with flavour. Dishes are brought out one at a time over the span of 2-2.5 hours so be prepared for the time investment!

    A hollow experience, the place is designed to look good, ultimately the food (veg sharing menu) is lazy and the service is insincere, you are paying for the postcode, not genuine care

    Great atmosphere and service. Tried their sharing course, as expected some dishes were innovative and delicious, the others was rather basic or sauces was too overpowering. But enjoyable experience

    Worth visiting for the Peruvian meat/seafood dishes, but 'traditional' Japanese dishes are on the pricier side

    Good. Prawn tempura, california maki, ebi furi maki are recommended. The beef steak with pomegranate sauce is below average. Prawn spring rolls is regular.
