The service was slow and the seared salmon I ordered wasn’t seared.

Hi Daniel - sorry to hear this on the service. Unsure on the Salmon as we don't have a seared Salmon on our menu.

Fantastic night - great service, great food and the added special treat of a pudding with a sparkler for my boyfriend on his birthday was unexpected and made us grin ear to ear!

An ok restaurant. I was here five years ago, when it was fairley new. They should modernize their concept. It is still fun with the interactive tables and the food is ok. But the toilet were dirty and the atmosphere was not as I remembered. It felt kind of exclusive last time I was there, but not anymore. If they do not want to make it more up to date, they should lower their prizes.

Thanks but we opened 12 years ago when the world didn't generally have smart phones or tablets - our sister restaurants have the upgraded technology but we keep Soho as the rerto offer. Appreciate the feedback and we will review inline with all our guest comments - we get over 75 a week just for soho from various platforms

The booking system does drive me crazy and I do not like knowing if I have booked the offer I think I have or not.
Having said service was always ready to help.
And the most important thing - the food was absolutely delicious. Everything: the sushi, scallop popcorn, salmon tartar, edamame

Very fun restaurant. Great atmosphere and a cool way to order. You can even play games on it! Overall the food is very good but certainly not worth the price given. All in all, a fun night and would go back with my friends if the restaurant wised up to how steep the price really is for the quality of food and drink. £17.50 for 6 sushi rolls is a bit of a joke. Furthermore the alcohol pricing was similar to the food, too steep.

Then again, my guests loved it so there is a plus and the fun and energetic vibe of the place really set off a good night!

Amazing food and atmosphere. The waitress - Maria- couldn’t have been more attentive and great care was taken to avoid cross contamination when cooking our daughters food, as she has a nut allergy. A lovely desert with sparkler was also presented for my other daughters 18th. I’d highly recommend.

Nice place to celebrate a birthday. Love the fact you can customise the table although ours wasn’t ready on time and there were technical issues which eventually got resolved and the staff was nice. The food though is very average and expensive - some of it was cold. Don’t go there for the food but kids loved the interactive tables. So I might go again if I want the experience but not bothered about the food ...

Food was brilliant and overall experience was great. However I find it super difficult to ever justify spending that much money on food, it was extortionate prices and really was a one off experience.

First, it's a cute restaurant. They've borrowed a worthy idea from some restaurants in Japan and all menus are projected down onto the table. It's fun. The food however is terrible. All the sushi seemed pre-made (complicated dishes turned up instantly after ordering) and sushi had clearly just come out of the fridge when it is supposed to be room temperature - which is awful. The lamb skewers had clearly been par-cooked and then finished off too, and were so tough that it was like chewing on a shoe. Given the fact the food is quite expensive too, there is no excuse for such poor quality food. Avoid.

Not borrowed Philip - we own the global patents! soory you felt the food match the restaurant - Our team work very hard on the freshness and quality of the food - none of the dishes are pre-made. our team work hard to ensure that all tables receive dishes quickly and it may be that they were managing the restaurant flow as all dishes are prepared to order.

The lights on the table from the projector was too colourful and bright and actually caused my friend a headache. The chicken yakitori doesn't look like what I was used to and actually looked like a rat (rat shaped). The chicken wings were amazing and I would definitely revisit just to eat them again. The price is alot for what you get. The tea was nice but the fondue dried up very quickly and the brownie got stuck in it. I would revisit with a friend but probably order different food.

I’ve always loved inamo but the unlimited set menu deal with wine is a no brainer! Service is so fast and the staff are super quick to fill up your glass and fetch fresh bottles of wine. Obviously the food is unbelievable too - bang bang cauliflower was a surprising favourite. Special mention to the waitress Kanny who was so helpful, we’ll be back soon! M

We arrived on time for our 6:30 booking. The front desk didn't say hello or welcome, they just informed us we needed to be out by 8:30. We where then instructed to be finished by 8:00, so they could get the table ready. Considering this was booked in advance, it was the worst greeting you could receive. At this point I wished we had left and spent our money somewhere else.
The food was ok and the waiter at our table made up for the terrible service on the door.
The décor was tired and worn-out, and everything felt sticky!
I would waste your money here as the novelty screen table quickly lost its charm.

Very poor service, no one showed us to our table when we arrived despite having made a booking, no one explained how to use the menu/ordering service, had to ask multiple times for the bill and were kept waiting for a long time. One of the dishes we ordered wasn't served fresh, also very overpriced.

Projector on my table wasn’t working properly so difficult to see what was going on. As it was a major selling point of the restaurant that was disappointing. We were also in the direct line with the front door which means that it got very cold whenever someone opened the door.
Will not go there again.

Visited recently for our son’s 16th birthday. It’s was a surprise for him and he loved the interactive menu and tablecloth. We all enjoyed playing games together between food. Speaking of which, it was delicious. We particularly loved the spiced aubergine. At the end of our meal our son was brought out a lovely dessert with a sparkler on and the restaurant sang happy birthday. Overall it was a very positive experience and we would definitely visit again. Service was great.
