Popped in with friends for a pre concert meal. The staff were all very attentive and super friendly. We shared an assortment of dishes, oysters, sashimi, Katsu pork, karaage chicken, miso eggplant, squid, and soft shell crab. Every mouthful set off a taste sensation. Washed down with crisp Asahis for the gents and chocolate gin for the women. An absolutely wonderful dining experience. Well priced too. We shall return!

Didn’t have a booking and place was near full with reserved on all tables that we could see but still made a table available for us. Very friendly staff and warm cosy atmosphere. Menu was a bit confusing at the start but once we ordered it became clear what the ordering process was. There was a large group already seated and had ordered so we expected a bit of a wait to receive our order but was happily surprised that it was way quicker than we had expected, then the taste of the food topped off a fantastic evening…… Highly recommend!

Food was delicious and of high quality.
Staff were friendly and food was served very quickly, we barely noticed the wait.

My only comment, by no means a complaint, was that we had to wait a bit longer than usual to be able to place our order and the caramel layer on the crème brûlée was a bit thicker than I would prefer.
It was still delicious and we ended up getting a second serving.

The tempura fried gobo was incredible!

Overall a great experience and we look forward to visiting again.

Ordered an Uber eats from Sakimoto. Sashimi turned up with nice salmon but other white fish (which probably was the Snapper was not tasty at all as well as seaweed salad. You basically do't have a choice what's will be on the sashimi dish. Also there were no chopsticks so we had to use hotel forks to ear our sushi. We would give it a try again but hope that they will be more caring for customers.
