With such hot weather, the allure of sushi is stronger than ever. So if you’re heading out ‘fishing’ this Sunday here are some places to wield your chopsticks
Authentic Japanese Kaiseki restaurant Roketsu brings celebrated Chef Daisuke Hayashi’s innovative monthly changing menus to the discerning London dining scene.
Hayashi is one of the only masters of the Kaiseki tradition globally, and the first to bring this spectacular and lesser-known form of Japanese dining to London.
Hayashi trained at the triple Michelin-starred and world-renowned Kaiseki restaurant Kikunoi in Kyoto as a protégé of the owner and celebrated chef Yoshihiro Murata. Today Daisuke is at the forefront of the next generation of Japanese chefs applying a modern, progressive approach to Japanese food.

Located on Goods Way in King’s Cross, this Omakase bar brings the best of the traditional Japanese experience in just 45 minutes per guest. 12 and 20-course menus available.
Omakase, meaning ‘chef’s choice’, is a form of Japanese dining in which guests leave themselves in the hands of the chef. Using premium ingredients available from land and sea, in short, this is the ultimate Japanese tasting menu.
