“Great visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

My 12 year old nephew absolutely loved the novelty of this place. He is hard to please and usually spends a lot of time on his computer these days so this was a great interactive, yet social event for him. Food was delicious - have the black cod and you will not be disappointed.

“Maybe a few more desserts?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We have been to Inamo in Soho several times and have always enjoyed the food there. The menu is great, the selection very good, the cocktails excellent and the pricing very reasonable.

This place has a great atmosphere and the table projection idea brilliant and fun and creates a great ambience. To us, this is a great place to eat with the family, be sociable and enjoy a relaxed meal.

Inamo has that wow novelty value and the staff are always friendly and attentive and ordering your own food and drink at your own pace is an excellent idea. Both the food and drink is always swift to arrive and the quality has always remained consistently good on every visit we have ever made. The selections are excellent and the little plates great for sharing with family and friends. The desserts however, were very disappointing and I would have liked to have seen a few more sweet options.

There are not any kids’ options on the menu which can be a bit difficult but overall, this was once more a really good visit and meal and there were no complaints from me or mine.

The self ordering eliminates those “you got my order wrong” moments and each table can tot up that diner’s invoice separately so no getting out those phones to work out who owes what (never causes a problem with my lot though they are always happy to let mum and dad pay the lot!). Great idea! The only down side is that I feel that the tables are too close together so you do feel like you are practically dining with the stranger on the next table and conversation can be difficult without overhearing or being overheard.

Looking forward to many more return visits in the future and might even try the St James’s branch to see if it lives up to the same quality and standard.

“Oops, that was a bit of a problem”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Given Inamo's USP is interactive table ordering, it doesn't fly when the system glitches and misfires because 'they are updating the software'. Once the system fails the runners have to become waiters' and as the lady at the table behind me (who received a saucer of soy sauce in the lap) found out, that didn't work well. The food was still good and the staff friendly - but when your USP is IT based.......... don't update it when guests are in

Hi,

We're really sorry about this. We suffered some unique software issues at the weekend, which caused malfunctions on some tables. We never carry out routine software updates during service.

Please drop us a line with your contact details, so one of our managers can get in touch to explain things in a little more detail.

Many thanks,

the inamo team

“Teenagers Heaven.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

The "IPAD concept" tables were a huge hit with my teenage son and his friends. This is the future of restaurants......... Great concept and great food. An enjoyable evening for all age groups.

“A fun restaurant with great food and a great twist.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

At this restaurant you can see every plate before you order it. You can also choose your tablecloth, play games, watch the kitchen staff prepare the food and order your drinks. Despite these gimmicks (which are actually fun and really add to the experience) the food and drinks are really good, the atmosphere is great and the service is quick and friendly. I have recommended this to several friends and intend to go back myself.
