Akira at Japan House London

An authentic Japanese dining experience by chef Shimizu Akira based on his ‘trinity of cooking’ principles – food, tableware and presentation.

Located on the first floor of Japan House London - experience Japanese-style omotenashi hospitality and the theatre of cooking as the chefs prepare dishes reflecting Japan’s diverse food offer, using seasonal ingredients over roaring robata (charcoal grill) flames. 

Akira Shimizu was formerly the executive head chef of Soho's Engawa and highlights of his menu include imaginative sushi specialities and chargrilled kushiyaki skewers made from umami-rich wagyu beef, pork, chicken, seafood and vegetables.

Japan House London takes up three floors in the stunning Grade II Heritage Listed Art Deco building that was once Derry & Toms department store on Kensington High Street. The aim of Japan House - (with locations also in Los Angeles and Sao Paulo) is to "broaden knowledge and deepen understanding of Japan through its diverse cultural, social and economic vitality."
