Had Lunch there yesterday. Very interesting and VERY loud. The place was full at 1: 30 pm when we arrived.

I went for the £50 set Omasake Lunch Menu.

Amuse Bouche - A lovely piece of spiced salmon with a little caviar on the top. Very tasty. Lovely texture of salmon and a very unusually named fruit to clean the pallet afterwards.

Tuna and Prawn Salad - 3 small yet delicious pieces of Tuna and a filleted prawn on a bed of salad with a ginger kind of salad dressing. Lovely.

Black Cod - After all the hype, it amounted to nothing probably due to the fact that the piece that i ate was barely a mouthful! Nice presentation though.

Sizzling Beef with a satay sauce - Perfectly cooked beef with a nice sauce. A Simple but nice tasting dish. The Miso Soup went well with it. (no rice though)

Sushi - Selection of 4 pieces of Sushi. Standard sushi really.

Chocolate Bento Box- A delightful melting chocolate cake/fondant with a creamy green tea ice cream.

Overall, service was very slow sadly but friendly. We were however told the kitchen was closing at 2 30 pm and had anything extra had to be ordered now. You never seem to get the same waiter though. Drinks very understandably expensive. 8 quid for a small bloody mary.

I was however left still hungry after the meal and im not a massive person just incase youre wondering! Portions were VERY small but delicious. It was however good to "taste" the huge menu as it were. However, for £50 a head, it would have been nice to perhaps have another small course or two.

The table next to us (made up of a slimy Noby office worker and 2 pretty girls who ordered a selection of top dishes and left all of them hardly touched!) seemed very pleased with themselves that they had been voted seond most POPULAR restaurant by a London Guide yesterday whose name escapes me but didnt mention the fact that they were rated 5TH for top food. Three words to describe the place at lunch yesterday - Interesting. Pretentious. Rushed.

Any comments / experiences / feedback appreciated.
