The restaurant smells of poo! Absolutely disgusting! I've had way better cocktails else where. The Japanese cocktails look pretty but the flavours aren't balanced. The music selection could be improved. To top it all off the service is sub-par. They get 2 stars for the location and rooftop views.
Had a blast celebrating my birthday last night. The Autumn menu was delicious. From starter to dessert including cocktail signature, Affordable price. Staff and manager were very friendly and attentive. Big thanks to Nikos and Michael who made our night so special!
Fantastic Experience ! I went to Aqua Kyoto with my husband and I can say with confidence that it was one of the best Japanese we have been to in London. Excellent food. The service was also brilliant and very attentive. We were looked after by Kyoko, who is Japanese and very passionate about her country. The cocktail bar at the entrance is very inviting with a New York vibe. We realised that Aqua also has a Spanish Restaurant on the other side which we were lucky enough to look at. I will definitely book soon to try it out.
Location, food and service!
Aqua Kyoto was the epitome of a perfect night out! I took my family there for a special occasion after being recommended many times. We had a pre dinner drink in the Spanish corner then ate the incredible food in the Japanese side. My gosh it was sublime! From the spinach and sesame starter to the Sushis and the out-of-this-world blackened cod! Our Japanese waitress was fun and very knowledgeable and made the whole experience even more memorable. This has set a new standard for Japanese food in my book and by the time we had our digestives on the terrace I had already made it my all time favourite. See you very soon!
First impression was bad as the waitress dropped us at our table and disappeared. No one came to see us for nearly 10 minutes and my wife had to get up and ask for someone to come.
And then Marco (not 100% sure of the name) came. Friendly staff, great advice, kept an eye on us all diner. We tasked him with ordering for us, and he did. Adjusting as the diner went based on our feedback.
And the food was GREAT!
Aqua, pay attention to first impression as we nearly walked away, which given the quality of the rest of the evening would have been a shame! We'll be back :-)
