I had been wanting to try this place out for months and am now left disappointed. We originally booked for 7 so that we had the option of both the set menu and the normal menu as some people in our group preferred a cheaper option. Unfortunately the restaurant called me the day before and asked to move my booking by 15 minutes (conveniently voiding the set menu due to restrictions)

Once in the restaurant we were shown how to use the menu and were then made aware that we had a time limit for our table. I know a lot of restaurants do this however for somewhere where you have an interactive menu with games and various little dishes you can't help but feel a little rushed. Surely this should of been mentioned when we booked as we were looking for a place on a Tuesday where we could eat, have a few drinks and a catch up.

The interactive menu is brilliant, showing you the dishes you can order and what they look like made decisions easier and made me order things I wouldn't normally try. The food was the best thing about this restaurant. Everything was cooked perfectly. The soft crab sushi rolls and little prawns in the small dishes were the stars of the evening along with the crispy duck large dish.
My friends dish however didn't turn up, no answer we given, when staff were requested (using table) no one came. By the time we managed to track down her dish the rest of the group had finished and had their plates cleared away. This spoiled the evening. Who seemed like the manageress, walked off without word to presumingly find the missing main to then send it with someone else 10 minutes later with no sorry or explanation. When we asked the waiter why the delay he came back and then removed the dish from our menu but still no sorry was given.
Poor service ruined the evening
Food is pricey for what it is albeit very good food.
If you don't drink you'll get stung though with £3.20 for a coke of 15p more for wine.

The food was really nice and the service in general is really good. Unfortunately for some very strange reason one of my order was not registered (and we order our own food from the table) and I sat for nearly an hour and half before I finally cancelled my order. They were very apologetic and they were going to offer it for free, but I needed to go with my friend so I didn't take it. Because it was a set lunch, they changed the order a bit and charged us a 3 course set menu instead of a two 2 course set menu instead. I will definitely go back though, because I think there might possibly be a glitz in the computer system.

Very unique dining experience. Concept is original. Fantastic food and price was very good when you have the set menu. Its a shared dining experience, so you get to sample many dishes if you go as a group. Highly recommend.

very different dining experience, highly recommended though. Loved the novelty of ordering at the table, changing table cloths, battleship game!! etc. Good way to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and then order courses when you are ready. Fizz rather expensive though!

having booked the london restaurant festival menu for 8pm I then received a call to say we couldn't eat at 8 but would we mind swapping to 8.45 - this wasn't a problem and I agreed. The manager was pleased and said he would arrange for a glass of champagne - which he then corrected to Prosecco for me and my guest on our arrival It was disappointing to arrive, be seated for 10 minutes with no Prosecco and then to have the waitress say the set menu was unavailable and we had to go a la carte - the manager then explained in a pretty aggressive manner that they had run out of dishes for the set menu so we had to go a la carte - I asked him to check which dishes were unavailable and 5 minutes later he returned to tell us only 2 had run out...we used the gimmicky table ordering system to choose the dishes that were available and then 10 minutes later another waitress explained the starter we had both chosen had run out. The chicken satay arrived and the waiter said be careful it's hot - it was in fact lukewarm at best, the sushi was average, the wagyu beef was good and the torte was great. Food wise we were disappointed with the lack of options and overall quality - service wise our experience was very poor.
I had been recommended to Inamo by a colleague and had high expectations for my guests birthday dinner - perhaps we were just unlucky with the staff on duty and the time or our sitting - if my original booking of 8pm had been honored then maybe we would have had the dinner we hoped for
