Chelsea, Kensington



| Chelsea, Kensington, Knightsbridge

Bizarre fusion restaurants have a habit of tanking in London (does anyone remember Shumi?) but the notion of a Japanese/Brazilian mix to the food and drink certainly has restaurant-goers intrigued if not completely beguiled. Worth checking out if only to say you've tried it, perhaps.

"The raw fish dishes were just about edible, and thus pointless. Sushi must be first-rate or nothing." READ REVIEW

"...I'd thoroughly recommend a visit to Sushinho - not just because the sushi is so good and the atmosphere so entrancing, but because it's unlike any other restaurant you'll find in London at the moment." READ REVIEW

"As a clubby bar that does food, Sushinho fulfils its side of the bargain with style, though it could do with some mad Brazilians on the floor to pep things up a bit. As a dinner destination, it is less appealing." READ REVIEW

"The owners have stuck together Japanese food and Brazilian bar culture as a marriage of convenience, but to our amazement, the food here is remarkably good." READ REVIEW

"Sushinho is a lovely place, and the staff are unfailingly helpful, but the food is neither exquisite enough to suit Japanese palates, nor hearty enough to sate the average gaucho." READ REVIEW

"While Sushinho doesn’t really cut it as a proper sushi destination, its Brazilian riff on Asian food is worth checking out if you’re curious." READ REVIEW
