Top 5 Japanese Restaurants In Mayfair According To Our Team
Cubé is an incredible Japanese restaurant that you need to visit. The food is super tasty and well-prepared. Also, they pay attention to the smallest detail – even the presentation of each dish. On top of that, the staff is really friendly and professional – and the interior design of the restaurant is incredible. It’s one of our favourite Japanese restaurants in Mayfair!
On their menu, you will find all sorts of sushi rolls, sashimi, maki rolls, fish main dishes, meat main dishes, salads, and even soups!
We highly recommend starting off with either the Kaiso salad with seaweed and sesame dressing or with sushi or maki rolls. Also, don’t miss out their Kani cream croquette (creamy crab meat croquette) and the Teriyaki Salmon.
And finally, definitely order dessert – the Matcha ice cream, the Tuzu sorbet, and the Mochi ice cream are incredible!

ROKA is a beautifully decorated sophisticated Japanese restaurant you will definitely want to visit at least once. The prices aren’t cheap, however, the experience of going to ROKA is amazing. The food is super delicious and the service is excellent!
On their menu, you will find sushi and sashimi as well as snacks, salads, and tempura. All of these things are super delicious, however, we want to focus on their Robata Grill because most people do visit ROKA because of all the incredible robata grill dishes they offer. For example, we highly recommend the Suzuki no yuzu-shiso fuumiyaki – seabass with yuzu-shiso and ginger seaweed salad and the kankoku fu kohitsuji – lamb cutlets with Korean spices!

We love their sushi – they have a huge selection of nigiri and sushi rolls that every sushi lover is going to appreciate!
They have a special Lunch menu as well as Dinner menu where you can also find noodles, rice soups, affordable Lunch or Dinner sets, and all sorts of appetisers, and other traditional main dishes!

Chisou Sushi and Izakaya
Chisou is a gorgeous restaurant serving authentic Japanese dishes. The reason why we love this place so much is that they really take Japanese hospitality to the next level and make sure they make every guest feel welcomed. Of course, the food is also super tasty!
Now, when it comes to their menu, the first things you will see is their small sharing plates and their salads. We highly recommend trying out the Maguro Tataki (apple smoked seared tuna with onion sauce) and the Chisou’s Classic Horenso Salad (baby spinach salad, spicy prawns. yuzu dressing).
Next, they have sushi rolls, sashimi, noodles, soups, grilled fish, deep-fried dishes, pan-fried dishes, and tempura. We are certain you will love the menu and you will probably have a hard time picking what to order because everything is so delicious!

And last on our list is Tokimeite – another high-end super stylish Japanese restaurant offering incredible traditional dishes, however, they have added a small European twist to some of their food in order to create a truly unique and authentic taste and experience.
We highly recommend starting off with Lobster and Cauliflower (steamed lobster and marinated cauliflower with Tosazu vinegar). Next on their menu, you will find fish and seafood main dishes, incredible sushi rolls and sashimi, meat dishes, and tempura.
If you are vegan or you simply enjoy tofu then they even have homemade tofu on their menu for you to enjoy!
