Really gone downhill - Sakagura was a real treat destination but very poor on this occasion - loads of food and sake not available, poorly informed staff, slow table clearing and disinterested management. Really sad.More

We happened in here, by chance. So glad we did! The otoro was amazing. I had the waigu beef bbq. Also amazing. Everyone was great at offering pairings and tastings. It was a pricey dinner, but so worth it. Great last dinner in London

We had the Yakiniku on the terrace as we wanted to grill using coal. The meat, seafood and vegetables were fresh and the Japanese Wagyu (as expected given the price) was outstanding. The service was excellent.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Based on the old style drinking houses of Japan known as izakayas. A place to unwind and relax in the company of great food, drink and friends. Serving casual authentic izakaya style food from Japan, our menu is designed to be shared with the table. Our small bites range from fresh sushi and sashimi to light crispy tempura and hot charcoal grilled robata skewers. Larger plates include salmon and vegetable poke bowls, assorted donburi rice bowls, and gozen bento sets served in a traditional kaiseki tray with steamed white koshihikari rice, wafu salada, tofu and wakame miso soup. Sake is king at Sakagura, choose from a wide selection of sake from some of the best artisan breweries in Japan or get fruity with our unique range of Japanese inspired sake cocktails. We also have a great selection of virgin cocktails and soft drinks.
