Review on Matsuri St James's

Matsuri St James's, a swish Mayfair address next to Quaglino's and behind Fortnum & Mason suggests well-groomed charm and style - and this long-running restaurant doesn't disappoint.

'Matsuri' means 'festivals' and the basement dining room is full of celebratory artefacts, lanterns and fans. What the kitchen offers is a mix of high-art sushi and the theatrical flamboyance of teppanyaki (anything from scallops and lobsters to exclusive wagyu beef and duck). The results can be mightily impressive.

As a back up, you will find benchmark zensai appetisers like grilled aubergine dengaku, silky chilled tofu with soy foam, and fresh salmon wrapped in rice paper, as well as salads and spicy soba noodles topped with anything from beef teriyaki to wild mushrooms and octopus.

Kimono-clad waitresses provide impeccably formal service, and saké is a recommended as an alternative to the French-biased wine list.
