Excellent Japanese restaurant in a vibrant and lovely area.Elegant design, sophisticated atmosphere and a dining experience that lasts for quite a while.
Truly impressive dishes and combination of scents and flavours that make you sigh with pleasure.Nice and knowledgeable staff, and a great evening out.
I went to mistukoshi during the Christmas holidays and again during Febuary when I had come down to London.
I heard many great reviews of this place and the rarity of the 'Shabu-Shabu set' and 'Sukiyaki set' sounded like a nice change in comparison to the usual japanese restraunts that predominantly serve Sushi and Udon noodles.
I was firstly shocked to find it inconviniently tucked away on the basement floor, the general decor was dissapointing, it looked like a cheap 2 star hotel lobby, despite the prices being far from otherwise.
I ordered a sukiyaki, and I waited a good 20 minutes for the waitresses to come and set up the grill on the table. She was sighing, which i found rather rude, and she could barely understand much English to explain to me what the other things on the menu were.
I then had to wait another 15 minutes to wait for the grill to heat up, in which we received a fairly amature and embarassing 'lesson' on how to cook the sukiyaki, in which the waitress constantly came back to loom over our table and add extra beef to fry. Definitely not the place you'd go for a casual and relaxed time with friends! I understand that it is Japanese mannerisms, but I found it a little excessive and intimidating. I have had better services at Japanese restraunts.
The food was not bad. But definitely not worth the ridiculous price it was between two people. The sukiyaki beef was lovely, although the vegetables and rice tasted a little dry along with the miso soup tasting too salty and cheap.
I have come back a second time with a friend in an attempt to give it another try, however, i was dissapointed the second time around. We arrived at about 9:00pm and barely an hour had passed when we were asked to leave. For a restraunt in the heart of London, I was shocked that it would close so early-and on a saturday night! All the other restraunts in the area are open at least till 11 at the earliest.
I have honestly had better experience at other Japanese restraunts in London, such as Tokyo Diner and Abeno Too, which were considerably much busier and cramped, yet the atmosphere is relaxed and the staff were friendly. I am not sure whether Mistukoshi is suppose to be an upmarket gourmet restaunt or a cheap imitation. The food, atmosphere and service I am dissapointed to say where not up to my expectations.
This place is for those who want to enjoy a formal night out, with excellent food and service.
I’ve been there many times, each time walking away satisfied and happy. Food quality is very very good, with lots of traditional japanese dishes which you don’t get anywhere else.
Albeit portions were a small but the quality cannot be topped!
