Perfect experience and amazing food. One of our parties was not very experienced with Japanese food and the staff's recommendations were spot on. Great entrance and a genuinely warm welcome.

Nothing particularly good or bad about this place. Food and service was ok as was atmosphere it is a bit pricey for what was really a snack and ultimately not particularly memorable.

Wow! From the arrival at the entrance of the building, to exit, this was a truly amazing experience. The professionalism of the staff matched the quality of the food and the cocktails were great too. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Description
Sake no Hana bar and restaurant is housed on the first floor of a modernist Grade II listed building in the heart of St James, offering modern Japanese dining. The a la carte menu provides a variety of hot and cold appetisers, charcoal grill, Toban and Kamameshi dishes, while sushi and sashimi are... prepared to order at the 13 seat sushi bar. A carefully selected list of sakes, Japanese whiskeys and other wines, spirits and liqueurs complement the dishes offered in the restaurant. Sake no Hana's interiors were designed my esteemed architect Kengo Kuma and the bar includes a beautiful futuristic chandelier, offering the perfect space for post work cocktails.

The bar is also a beautiful space for private parties of up to 60 guests for a standing canape event, or can host up to 25 guests seated for an exclusive private dining experience.
