It makes a refreshing change to find a London Japanese restaurant that steers clear of a sushi-only menu and explores some of the less famous elements in far eastern cooking. Of course, there’s sushi and sashimi a plenty at this Mayfair restaurant, but there’s also tempura, udon and soba noodles as a host of other traditional Japanese delicacies here too. Head over to Ikeda Restaurant on Brook Street for an intelligent look at modern Japanese food in the capital.
For those with a familiarity with Japanese cooking, Ikeda Restaurant in London’s Mayfair is something of a relief in a city stuffed to the gills with sushi (see what we did there?). The team on Brook Street honour the traditions of sushi making, but are on hand to expand the culinary horizons of the adventurous with their interesting takes on Japanese cooking. Think delicate broths, light tempura as well as fantastic sushi and sashimi and you’ve got a good idea of the kind of food that is setting Ikeda Restaurant apart from the identikit sushi joints in London.
Diners are invited to join the staff at Ikeda Restaurant in London’s Mayfair for diner in a relaxed ambience. Not far from Oxford Street, Ikeda, along Brook Street, is a quiet oasis of culinary calm. Find great Japanese food, hard to find in the capital, at Ikeda. And while the team here are keen to demonstrate that Japanese food goes beyond soy sauce and wasabi, there’s something distinctly sushi-esque in their plates of food: each dish is presented artfully, with a minimalist chic that is part and parcel of eating in Japan.
Wonderful place with a very kind service and a great Japanese meal
The food is really nice. My fav Japanese restaurant in London.
We had a great meal again, fantastic food, fantastic service, highly recommended. Very cosy, family like atmosphere. There are only few tables, make sure you book in advance.
