Group Bookings (5+ Guests)

Should you be looking to reserve a table of 5 or more guests you must contact the Restaurant directly. We do require a £10.00 per person deposit to guarantee the table - this can later be deducted from your final bill or refunded to the card provided. In addition to this, we also require tables of 5 or more to dine 'Omakase' style - this literally translates to 'trust us' during which we tailor make a sharing menu for your table dependant on dietary requirements, likes and dislikes. We do provide menus on the night and if there are any items that you would like we can include these within your Omakase.

Children Policy

As our izakaya is quite small, we do not have space for buggies at the tables. Storage is also tight (we need the space for all our specially imported ingredients and booze), so we cannot store folded buggies. We do have 1 high chair for your use.

While we will gladly accommodate well behaved small children (over 3 years old) at lunch time and early evening (5pm - 7pm), we apologise that we cannot take them in the later booking times.
