Introduction

Sake no Hana is the brainchild of the Hakkasan Group for Japanese gastronomy, most notably sushi. However, other Japanese dishes are available as well. It is a popular spot amongst the young and beautiful, including celebrities. This restaurant also has locations in Jakarta and Bali.

Review

Personally, Sake No Hana was a disappointment to me. Maybe I expected too much being a restaurant owned by the Hakkasan Group. The styling of the restaurant is a modern interpretation of traditional Japanese architecture, and you access the restaurant (that is located on the first floor) by an escalator after dropping off your coats at the entrance. Leave it to the Hakkasan Group to always have amazing interiors. The menu consists mostly of sushi, both traditionally prepared and modern interpretations. Other small Japanese dishes are available as well. The food is ok, but not mind-blowing. I did feel that there are better places for sushi in London, with other restaurants offering higher quality sushi for the same price point. Overall, Sake No Hana came across as a hotspot “to see and be seen”. I wonder if my disappointment came from the fact that we shared mostly sushi rolls, which I generally enjoy less, but nevertheless, for the near future, I will not go back, apart maybe for their lunch menu (£29). Who knows, I might enjoy their traditional sushi more, and it will convert my opinion?
