Further Information

Regardless of whether you’re a sushi-eating machine or you’re simply an amateur, you’ll find plenty of fantastic options on Sushinoen’s extensive menu. The restaurant can be found where White Church Lane meets Whitechapel Road, right at the entrance of Altab Ali Park in London’s Whitechapel area. It’s impossible to miss this local sushi joint – the izakaya lanterns adorning the restaurant’s brick exterior are a dead giveaway. Displaying a strong Japanese aesthetic sensibility with sleek wooden tables, sharp angles and artifacts, the interior of Sushinoen is stunning.

The cuisine at London’s Sushinoen is also stunning. Choose from a huge list of nigiri, sashimi, maki and temaki and build your own meal, or take a sushi platter like the Sushinoen moriawase platter or the salmon paradise. If you’re after something warm, we recommend the gyu teriyaki, a succulent cut of grilled beef served on an iron plate. The noodles at Sushinoen are especially comforting, like the seafood yakisoba or the miso ramen noodle soup with your choice of pork, chicken or vegetables. A scoop of green tea or black sesame ice cream – also available deep fried – provides the perfect conclusion to a meal at this Whitechapel Japanese restaurant. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Everything was perfect: the booking experience, food, presentation, saké and of course the service. I would definitely recommend Sushinoen and will definitely soon go there myself.

Food was delicious - we ate a selection of hot appetisers and sushi. Definitely recommend the grilled aubergine and house speciality sushi called London London. We weren't rushed out the door after two hours like at a lot of restaurants in London on a Friday night. However one of the waitresses did top up our wine glasses a little too aggressively, though service in general from other wait staff was friendly and helpful.

Love this restaurant and all of my party really enjoyed themselves. The staff were very friendly and helpful, as it was a busy night it took a little while to get staffs attention sometimes but it was such a great night no one minded. Do try this restaurant, you will love it :)

Great food and very authentic, However, some of the dishes didn't seem to match their price. For example 6 pieces of vegetable tempura (2 slices of courgette, 2 slices of carrot, and 2 others covered in a light batter) for 8 quid is quite a lot. I'd eat here for lunch.

The food was good, the variety of sushi sets is not very impressive though. The service was generally good (friendly and fairly quick), but they were a bit pushy, which made us feel like we should hurry up and leave asap. A bit overpriced, in my view.

The food was as great as the first time I've been there. It is bit pricey compared to other Japanese restaurants, but the interior design, the tasty food and extensive menu make up for it. I definitely recommend the place specially for dates :)

We had an amazing pre-Christmas meal here. Food was amazing, prices were good too. Think they may have been a bit short-staffed on the day, but otherwise all good :)

The Food was tasty. Staff were nice. Bit cheeky adding service charge to bill. Could've had volume on for the film projected in the wall.

Plastic bowls and chopsticks while charging 10%, sushi is better then wasabi' , but 62 quid for the quality you get sounds like an extortion.
