Nice surroundings, service was ok but we found the food average when we had expected to it to be very good. They also charged for two bottles of Saki instead of the one we had. We wouldn't go back ourselves but it may have been...More

"Do you have a reservation?" Er, no. Nor do you need one. It has very nice set lunches. Not cheap though.

We had the middle menu of the three (£100 a head). The food was good with the very rich and flavourful wagyu the highlight. While I was full and the food very good, I did feel that it was pretty pricey considering the chefs and...More

I had a bento box from Matsuri for my lunch and was blown away by it. Great value for money and what's more important great food. Matsuri do a different box each day. Absolutely fantastic

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

the restaurant is closed undergoing refurbishment. It's opening with a different name. try calling or emailing them as getting in on the ground floor of a new restaurant is probably a great idea.

Hi, Please could you let me know the youngest age you can accept into the creche? We were with you last year and my then 18month old loved it. We are staying with you again in December with a 6 1/2 month old as well, and was wondering if she will be old enough? Many thanks,

Matsuri St James's is based in the heart of Mayfair, offering a wide variety of Japanese food from authentic to innovative. Using top quality ingredients we create a beautiful harmony including teppanyaki - a cooking style in which a chef cooks in front of you. The Sushi bar is very popular among Japanese expatriates as they recognise the same quality as they eat in Japan.
