Sushi Atelier Japanese Restaurant Review by Japanese

Rating: (I would love to go back) Beautifully Presented Westernized Modern Sushi That Fascinates Japanese People Although sushi served here isn’t traditional Japanese sushi, it is modern and creative. Each piece of sushi is prepared carefully with so many techniques like notches and aburi (firing the surface), and with so many different kinds of modern sauces like ponzu jelly (instead of soy sauce). This restaurant is like an “atelier” where sushi is beautifully prepared and presented. Not only I but also Japanese friends were also fascinated by the creativeness and quality, and watching sushi chef prepare each piece of sushi was so much fun!   Westernized Modern Sushi Omakase Sushi […]

Sakana-Tei Japanese Restaurant Review by Japanese

Assorted Sushi Sakana-Tei

Rating: Japanese Restaurant Category (I’ve gone back several times) Sushi Category (I would love to go back) I love this Japanese restaurant in London because it serves many dishes that Japanese love but aren’t usually served in other Japanese restaurants in London. This restaurant is not a fancy Japanese restaurant, but is like old cozy authentic Japanese casual izakaya (tapas bar) in Japan; it might be too authentic that it may be hard to fully enjoy this restaurant without Japanese friend. If you can’t go with Japanese friend, ask Japanese waiter and/or waitress for today’s recommendation and Japanese sake (rice wine) that goes well with the recommended food. Try fish […]
