Had a meeting unexpectedly cancel and found myself with 2 hours to kill so this was an unplanned booking. What a stunning experience from the moment the large oak door rolled away. As a solo diner my table was just what I wanted, secluded and...More

Of course not it does not!. I don't speak Japanese! been there several times, the pb of UMU is that most people don't realize the quality and care of the ingredients. If you don't see the difference between Itsu sushi and UMU, well save money...More

I do recommend the vegetable tempura, really top. Maybe the Sushi was a little bit expensive but good enough. Red miso soup good but definitively the vegetable te Pura is the different dish. 100£/person.

We were invited by a friend for dinner. We had the 9-course tasting-menu with corresponding sake. We really enjoyed every course and the differences in the sakes and how they matched with the food were a real experience.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
