We had a very disappointing meal at Niwa. The service was (with one exception) pretty awful - unfriendly, abrupt and devoid of charm. I had the beef Raman and it was awful - tasted like pot noodle, no flavour and bizarrely mixed with store-cuboard curry...More

Like a garden (this is the origin of the name), in a friendly atmosphere of light, colours and scents. A relaxing environment where you can taste the refined flavours of the Japanese cuisine and the less known but equally sublime of the Thai cuisine. A journey to a corner of modern Asia, to be spent in the intimacy in the room with tatami booths or under the magic of colours and stillness in the room with the vertical garden in search of ancient flavors of the Eastern cuisine.
