Best Asian Restaurants in London

Dinings - Japanese

22 Harcourt Street, W1H 4HH

Located in a small, exclusive space on a side street near Marylebone station, Dinings is the work of ex Nobu chef Masaki Sugisaki. What makes the restaurant really stand out is its bold mix of Japanese Izakaya style with modern European cuisine. As you would expect the Sushi is superb and so too the Wagyu beef.  Decor wise the restaurant is a contemporary and almost brutal affair with exposed concrete.

Sumosan - Japanese

26 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4, 020 7495

Hidden away on Albemarle street, Sumosan doesn't take the headlines like some of its peers in Nobu and Roka with its inoffensive interior. It does however win an array of plaudits for it extravagant food. If your looking for an impressive alternative to Nobu this is your place.

The Araki - Japanese

12 New Burlington Street, London, W1S 3BH
