Newly redecorated and more comfortable seats and better lighting Still the best food prepared in front of you by experts. Try having your sashimi thick cut rather than the usual thin cut, it's even more delicious. I see that if they've run out of razor clams they substitute whelks which will be my next to try. Expensive but still good... More

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant. Delicious Japanese food, and the reception and service was very efficient and friendly. Having the waitresses in traditional Japanese dress adds to the Japanese feeling. We'll certainly return.

Unpretentious place with chefs right behind the counter and you can watch them prepare the very delicious cuisine in front of you, with extreme hygiene of course. We enjoyed sushi platter, and tempura, fish...with cute mochi to round up the meal. Thank you everyone!

I hesitate to write this because this is easily the apex quality Japanese restaurant in the city and I want to keep it for myself. The food is authentic. The sushi and sashimi are prepared by a master. The service is also authentic Japanese, intelligent and respectful but always 'low key' (it is a family run restaurant offering an excellent... More

There is Japanese food and there is Japanese food ... This restaurant sets itself apart from other Japanese restaurants in town with its cooking. Everything we ordered wasn't just beautiful, it was exquisite. The food was sophisticated and most importantly, authentic. Nothing to do with those trendy cooking styles in Roka, Nobu or Buddha Bar (not that we don't like... More

I first went to this restaurant 15 years ago. The food was very good but the service is not good. I continued frequenting the place because of the food but the service was getting me down. There are many good Japanese restaurants in London so I stopped going. Recently, I thought I'd try again. Maybe the service had improved. NO... More

Though the sushi this restaurant serves is authentic, we are not impressed with other dishes such as tempura and noodle dishes -- and the service (more below). Their green tea and miso soup are tasteless (really surprising for an authentic Japanese restaurant) while they charge high prices for both. (Based on a friend's recommendation, we tried a nearby restaurant in... More

What can I say? I come here quite often and I love the food. Everything is very fresh and very well prepared. The service is decent, it is not great. They concentrate in the smalls details such as getting your wet towel, your bits and bobs in the right position. However, they forget to bring you your tea. Go and... More

Want a good place that is consistent and maintains quality? This is the place. Not cheap, but well worth it. Fish direct from Japan and the prep is excellent. Chawan Mushi is answer to life. Chef owned and operated.

Came for an anniversary meal, stuck on a corner next to large party of 12- 14, felt more like an inconvenience and needed to keep asking staff for things. Such a shame as the food was amazing but the front of house staff couldn't have cared less for us.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
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 if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
