64 Turnmill Street, London EC1M 5RR
Latest critic review: June 19, 2016


This is a restaurant from the unstoppable Jason Atherton. This time the theme is Japanese with Teppanyaki, robatayaki, and sashimi on the menu plus a downstairs bar with plenty of hip-hop on the soundtrack.

"An open temaki sushi – an envelope of toasted, then tempuraed nori – comes filled with cubes of tuna tartare bound with spiced mayonnaise and a blitz of spring onions. It is crisp and soft, subtle and powerful." READ REVIEW

"Choose carefully, and you’ll eat like an emperor. But the duds do leave a bitter tang. These, though, are early days." READ REVIEW

"The stuff that comes is essentially good, though the twists, takes and variations are not necessarily improvements." READ REVIEW

"Every plate is a thing of beauty, its flavours as intriguing. Take the must-order ‘open’ tuna temaki: a twist on a traditional handroll, the seaweed wrapper comes tempura-battered (it really works) and set into a ‘U’ shape, much like a hard taco." READ REVIEW

"Sosharu is all about the little details, an aggregation of tiny factors that lifts it from a decent Japanese restaurant to a place that you really shouldn’t miss. That Jason Atherton is going to make a million, I tell you." READ REVIEW

"Miyazaki wagyu tataki — a handful of seared beef cubes — with turnip and radish kinpira, a sort of quick pickle, served with scoops made from deep-fried kale is another ingenious assembly I recommend if the price doesn’t offend. It is wagyu after all." READ REVIEW
