Sushi Tetsu
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
12 Jerusalem Passage, London EC1V 4JP
Critic reviews - total score 9.5 out of 10

The tiny Sushi Tetsu is both one of the best sushi restaurants in town and also one of the hardest to get into. With only half a dozen seats inside, each item served to you will be almost a work of art. This may well ruin other sushi restaurants for you...

West London
2 Farmer Street, London W8 7SN

This Notting Hill restaurant is from a Middle East restaurateur who has created a whole new culinary category with its Baja-Nihon cuisine. Alongside tostadas, tiraditos and ceviche, there are 22 new takes on a taco. And yes, there is plenty of tequila or mezcal on hand (including a tasting flight) on the menu.

157 Westbourne Grove, London W11 2RS

Having already opened his fabulously-reviewed Endo at the Rotunda, sushi master Endo went one further, opening this new sushi bar in Notting Hill, which went down extremely well with West London folk. Easily one of the best sushi spots in town.

West London
240 Portobello Rd, Notting Hill, London W11 1LL

Notting Hill's Ukai is very much in the fusion mould - mainly Japanese, but taking in Mediterranean and South American infuences. The robata grill is put to good use - and look out for their snacks, aka "Japas".

West London
7 Blenheim Cres, Notting Hill, London W11 2EE

This Tonkotsu is a small departure from the rest, as it features a counter-style ramen bar of the kind you'll find in Tokyo. But don't worry - if it's your favourite ramen dishes you're after, they're on the menu too.

A top Japanese izakaya in Mayfair - if you're looking for excellent sushi without the Mayfair prices, this is the place you come. Chef Takamasa Mogi was previously at Nobu and goes big on omakase where you let him choose what to feed you.

Mayfair's Shepherd Market is the site of this dinky all day Japanese bar, with an ex-Novikov Head Chef in charge, serving up gyoza, soft shell crab salads and green pancakes for breakfast.

132 Seymour Place, Marylebone, London W1H 1NS

Junsei is all about yakitori skewers cooked over Binchōtan Japanese Charcoal . There are over 20 skewers available, not to mention Wagyu seared at the table and more...

22 Harcourt Street, London W1H 4HH, England

This, the original Dinings, has a well deserved reputation for serving up excellent Japanese food with flair. Either sit up at the sushi bar or book a table in the restaurant.

North London
9 Chapel Market, London N1 9EZ

Chapel Market might not be the first place you'd think of for top quality sushi, but Head chef Padam Raj Rai was the former head sushi chef at Tsukiji restaurant in Mayfair and he knows his stuff. Plus, you'll get to throw an A5 Japanese Wagyu steak on the stone here and cook it exactly how you like it.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
16A D'Arblay Street, London W1F 8EA

Dai Chi comes from the same team as Dalston's Angelina but they're trying something different here. The Japanese restaurant primarily focuses on kushikatsu cuisine - which is all about breaded, deep-fried skewers. You can either go one skewer at the time or go all-in for a good-value omakase menu.

12 New Quebec St, Marylebone, London W1H 7RP

Roketsu comes from Daisuke Hayashi (previously Executive Head chef at Tokimeitē) and this is very much a passion project. The restaurant revolves around a Japanese kaeiseki tasting menu, taking dashi as its base. Particular care has been taken with the design, with elements that have been imported from Japan - it looks amazing as a result.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
3 Windmill St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 2HY

Having worked for the likes of Tsukiji, Nobu and Zuma, this is Chef Padam Raj Rai's second Hot Stone. It's a steak and sushi bar - so there's all manner of top drawer sushi, lots of it with innovative sauces and toppings, and then a section of steak and seafood to be cooked on the titular hot stones.

East London
499 Kingsland Road, London E8 4AU

Luke Findlay had been running Supa Ya Ramen as a supperclub, but this is his first permanent restaurant. As with their pop-ups, you can expect what they call "traditionally inauthentic" ramen and this restaurant added lots of extras like roast chicken skin and noodle ice cream with miso caramel for dessert.

North London
6G Esther Anne Place, London N1 1WL

Jiji is from restaurateur Janina Wolkow, the woman behind celebrity hangout Sumosan. Billed as a Japanese/Middle Eastern fusion restaurant, it's a mix of sushi and sashimi with the kind of dishes you'd expect to find in somewhere like the Palomar.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
54 Frith St, Soho, London W1D 4SL

This is top chef Angelo Sato's solo Soho restaurant and it's about literally all of the chicken. Every bit of the chicken is put to use in the yakitori menu, so while you can play it safe and choose breast (with plum + shiso) or wing (with shichimi + lemon) you can also opt for Achilles, tail, cartilage and more.

The P Franco team took over the former Legs restaurant on Morning Lane with an all counter dining and drinking space. Expect a yakitori-inspired menu with lots of skewers.

56 Dalston Lane, London E8 3AH
Critic reviews - total score out of 10

This Dalston restaurant has a modern take on Japanese and Italian food - resulting in a creative fusion menu that's inspired by both cuisines, while also pushing the envelope. There are omakase tasting menus alongside a la carte, and it also sports a tiny Tokyo-style cocktail bar.

King's Cross, Bloomsbury
11 Goods Way, Kings Cross, London N1C 4PW

Sushi on Jones started life as a tiny sushi stand in New York and was immediately showered with praise. The latest in that group is this London restaurant with a mere eight seats serving up an omakase sushi experience on the hour every hour.

South London
Unit 39, Brixton Village, Coldharbour Ln, Brixton, London SW9 8PS

Okan has three outposts in total, and with two of these in SW9 Brixton folk feel rather spoilt. The locations feel different in atmosphere and serve different dishes, so it's worth checking both out. Head to Brixton Market for Osaka-influenced cooking with sizzling hot plates of teppanyaki, omuyaki soba or okonomiyaki. Round the corner is their Coldharbour Lane site, where the fare is Izakaya style tapas with mum’s ramen and donburi in a calmer setting.

South London
426 Coldharbour Ln, Brixton, London SW9 8LF

Fun, bright, and a bit bonkers, this restaurant is the brainchild of Tim Anderson - the youngest ever winner of Masterchef back in 2011. Nanban means “southern barbarian” and Tim’s cooking style is to mash up Japanese soul food with international flavours from Brixton Market. Ramens all come with a twist, like the lazy goat ramen topped with Scotch bonnet-pickled bamboo shoots. Other dishes include Japanese inspired burgers.

South London
58D Atlantic Rd, Brixton, London SW9 8PY

A hidden gem, and one for dedicated sushi lovers, this 6 seater set up specialises in Yoroppa-Mae style Sushi Omakase. There is no menu, the chef serves up to 18 inventive courses with the freshest fish he can source that day. The chef graduated from Tokyo Sushi Academy and the restaurant focuses on Japanese techniques while also taking influence from his Colombian and Thai heritage. An intimate and unique experience.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
The Opera Terrace Covent Garden, The Piazza, London WC2E 8RF

Sushisamba have taken over the Opera Terrace at Covent Garden- expect the same mix of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian food as the original (and a big bar too). And all that with decor that's bound to impress and a handy outdoor terrace for the summer months.

From the team behind Chisou this is a modern sushi restaurant serving up contemporary combos so don't be surprised to find items like chilli ponzu jelly or truffled teriyaki sauce on the menu.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
32 Berners St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 3LR

In addition to its Press for Pisco button, this larger follow-up to the Covent Garden original serves up all the usual favourites (like their amazing smores) on the menu along with new baos and more.

The City
10 Trinity Square, London EC3N 4AJ

Whether you're looking for Peking Duck or sushi, this restaurant (one of two at the Four Seasons Trinity Square) has what you're after - covering traditional Japanese and Chinese dishes with what they say is a 'modern approach'. Tables are well spaced too making it good for confidential convos.
