    We booked the Kyoto Nights menu and it was incredible. The food was absolutely delicious. Service was also superb. We had Federico as our waiter and he was so attentive and fun that made the experience all the more memorable. The place and ambience is great and I love being able to see the food being cooked. 100% recommend this place.

    My husband I enjoyed a very fabulous lunch here with unlimited cocktails. For the price I would have liked a larger variety of cocktails (there were only two pre-mixed on offer). Also the portion sizes of the mains on the set menu were very small. You could pick from one small piece of salmon, beef or rice. Luckily we ordered the salmon and the rice and shared. Maybe add a few small sides to the mains. But service was impeccable and our servers were so friendly and accommodating.

    We came here for our anniversary. The menu is pretty comprehensive with plenty to choose from and we decided to pick a range of dishes. The tempura shrimp was out of this world - Really fabulous. Tuna Tataki was, however, dreadful. Greasy, oily and over-fishy, we left the whole plate. It’s not supposed to taste like that… Chicken Yakitori was excellent as was the black cod with rice. Even the humble Edamame was really good here. For dessert only one dish really appealed - There’s a bit too much Matcha going on which is fine if you like it. Sushi and Sashimi were excellent too, and nicely presented. We had the Fuji apple (IIRC) and as a nice touch the staff stuck a candle in it and wished us a happy anniversary. I’m not a big dessert fan but this was so good! Cocktails were excellent - Cosmopolitans made properly is always a good sign. If I wasn’t driving I’d have tried some others and they had a good selection. Coffee was also good but needs to arrive hotter. When we walked in I wasn’t sure if having a DJ there was going to ruin dinner but the way the rooms are separated is done well so you still get some background music without it being too loud to talk. The decor was spot on and it’s a shame it was tipping it down as we’d like to have done outside on the roof garden. Service was poor, and for a 15% default charge added to the bill it’s just unacceptable. We were reminded when we arrived they’d want the table back for 9.30 (7.45 booking) so certainly didn’t want to be waiting about for the service. Initially we were seen quickly but the time between that and ordering was way too long. The guy was pleasant but a bit vague when taking the order and he left with us wondering if we’d get everything we asked for. During the meal we had better service from other staff (manager with the beard) and a blonde lady who flogged us another bottle of overpriced water but come time for the bill and we had to wait too long to find our waiter. In the end we flagged down another senior member of staff and they sorted it. Given that the place was only about 2/3 full it seemed unnecessary so remind us of when they’d want the table back - There were plenty available throughout our meal. We enjoyed the visit. I’d seen some negative comments about the service but you can only go by experience so we gave AQ a go and by and large weren’t disappointed. It’s clear that the service is still not on point though so maybe they’re one or two short of the right number of people or they need to sharpen up their training. It’s not cheap, though, so for that outlay I’d expect better. If I were to compare food to somewhere similar I’d say that Roka is better. It’s not by a mile but the Tataki really was awful and nobody seemed interested as to why it was barely touched. In hindsight I should have sent it back. The rock shrimp Tempura is killer though - I’ve spent plenty of time in Japan and across Asia and never had shrimps that melt in your mouth like that. Frankly, I could sit in that place at lunchtime and devour 3 or 4’plates of it with a few beers and leave perfectly happy. AQ’s atmosphere and decor is cooler than Roka and it feels more of an experience too. Would we go back? Yes, definitely. I’d be prepared for the patchy service and if I had the same again would knock that 15% default down to 10% because that’s really the most they should be “suggesting” for that level. I wouldn’t bother with the coffee either - You can walk outside and have your choice of any number of great coffee places where it’ll cost less and arrive hot, rather than warm.

    There are very few places in London which are upscale but still comfortable enough to feel like home. Perfect for a Friday night and to start off the weekend, Aqua Kyoto had an exciting atmosphere, great music, absolutely delicious food and impeccable service. The staff were very professional and yet friendly. Absolutely no complaints. Would recommend more tempered chocolate in the “forest floor” dessert to really get that crackling twigs experience-otherwise, it was scrumptious without being too heavy on the stomach, with a great balance of flavours. The spinach and sesame salad with goma dressing, prepared at the table- was divine. We were running slightly late, around 8-10 minutes after the booking time, but they were not problematic about holding on to the table, even when clearly very busy, which was appreciated, thank you.

    If I could give this more stars, I would!!!!!! First class service, matched with top level food. The waiters were able to explain everything on the menu to us including the specials. They were also able to advise us on suitable wine pairings. The atmosphere is amazing. Interior design is incredible. They also have two roof top terraces for those lovely Summers days and evenings. I'm actually looking to head back there next month. Sooooo good!!!!
