Chisou Knightsbridge on Beauchamp Place is Chisou Mayfair’s twin (and the older sibling of the takeaway oriented Chisou Sushi Counter). Both occupy prime positions in London’s Japanese cuisine scene, keeping both decor and dishes authentic to the spirit of a Japanese izakaya. While an elegant atmosphere and the inimitable, Zen-like artistry of the best Japanese restaurants are apparent, Chisou Knightsbridge can get rowdy. And that’s as an izakaya should be. Perennially popular with Japanese sararimen, izakaya – and Chisou Knightsbridge – are about food and drink, with several premium Japanese sakes available exclusively at Chisou’s restaurants.
With Chisou you have three places to dine on some of the most authentic Japanese food in London. Alongside Chisou izakaya Mayfair (and Mayfair’s smaller-format Chisou Sushi Counter), Chisou Knightsbridge is one of Chisou’s two flagship izakaya restaurants. Located at Beauchamp Place, Chisou Knightsbridge is just a short walk from Harrods, the V&A, the Natural History Museum, and Knightsbridge tube station.
Japanese izakaya restaurants are less formal than their kaiseki counterparts, offering the elegance and tranquility you’d expect from a venue serving fine Japanese cuisine, but with far more emphasis on socialising with friends, sharing exquisite small plates and drinks. Izakaya can get raucous, and in true izakaya style, Chisou Knightsbridge doesn’t shy away from recommending a drink to go with your sushi, sashimi, tempura or seasonal special. Chisou can boast that they are the exclusive UK stockists for some of Japan’s finest sakes. That’s a reason itself to head to Chisou Knightsbridge to order a hot or cold flask of the traditional Japanese rice wine, but once ensconced at Beauchamp Place, you’re not likely to leave before at least checking out Chisou’s unusual approach to the menu – unlike Western menus, Chisou Knightsbridge is organised according to cooking technique or size. Chisou Knightsbridge gives Londoners their best chance to enjoy Japanese izakaya the way the Japanese do.
Great food, great staff, ordered one dish which i personally did not like (as i missed from the menu which said it was deep fried) they took it off from the bill and didnt charge me. Wagu with foie gras is incredible. Will definitely come back
Chisou is an Excellent Restaurant. The quality of the sushi is outstanding. Amazing Service and really nice ambiance! It is a winner Restaurant. I highly recommend.
Good food great service, the waiter was very helpfully will surely come back again and recommend it to others. The only set back was we were in a small room seated next to a very loud group which was annoying. But nothing the restaurant can do about it.
Excellent customer service and awesome food, excellent food quality especially the seafood! Will go back again definitely! Booking is straightforward as well using Quandoo! A very nice restaurant.
A truly great experience - the food is of the highest quality, you can really taste how fresh the ingredients are and how much thought has gone into some of the more complex dishes. The service was impeccable - we were seated upstairs and looked after by Douglas (apologies if I am misremembering the name) who was the most professional and attentive team member I have come across in a high end sushi restaurant. He was very helpful with recommendations and providing samples to aid in making our selection. The decor was warm and "boutiquesque" in presentation and the background music was at the right level and fitted the mood of the evening (Valentine's day). I will definitely go back - thank you for a great meal experience.
Good food and very friendly staff. Not too formal and had a very good atmosphere. I am Japanese so I am quite fussy with the quality and presentation of Japanese food, but I was very happy with the restaurant. When they found out we were celebrating my friend's birthday they surprised us with a gorgeous desert plate. We had a lovely birthday dinner. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Food was excellent as usual and excellent staffs attentive level. Family was satisfied with the products and services and definitely will visit Chisou Knightsbridge more often.
Inventive tasty food, well priced for what was on offer. Service was both friendly, courteous and efficient. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. Good selection of sake plus a good choice of wine by good makers, and appropriate matches for the food
Amazing food. Do be adventurous and order more than sushi sashimi. The spinach and rock shrimp salad, the kimchee pork, the tuna tartare eith truffle are just some if the really delicious ad unusual dishes. Not cheap but eorth every penny
Really good products and really good service !!! I recommend 100%. Prices good for the quality and nice place ! It’s better to book a table in advance as it a small place but really nice !!! Thanks a lot !
