Review on Inamo Covent Garden

Inamo is the pan-Asian restaurant that pioneered interactive ordering at the table when they first opened in Soho in 2008. A second restaurant followed in 2010 in St James's, which was subsequently relocated in 2016 to the building which housed French restaurant, Cafe des Amis du Vin in Covent Garden. Just a stone's throw from the tube, they have introduces an improved version featuring a tablet based system for ordering food, as well an entertainment centre, where you can watch all the action in the kitchen, choose the design of your place setting and play video games.

Set over three sleekly groomed floors, the main dining room is on the first floor with onyx and wood clad walls and tables set amongst groups of bamboo. Enjoy Oriental-themed cocktails in the Onyx bar located in the basement with its own sushi bar, while the first floor is available for private parties.

Executive chef Jon Claro has created a diverse menu of sharing dishes drawing inspiration from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand. Typical dishes on the carte include Californian roll, crispy soft shell crab rolled with creamy avocado in six maki pieces and finished with tobiko and a sweet mayo. From the land there's the classic Japanese dish of beef tataki, rare British rib-eye steeped in ginger and ponzu sauce. To finish there are luscious offerings including an indulgent dark chocolate mousse layered with chocolate cake and served with creamy coconut ice cream or chocolate popping candy dipping sticks, two fresh strawberries, two chunks of brownie and two marshmallows, all coated in chocolate and served with popping candy to dip in.

Wines have been carefully chosen to match the food, alongside Kirin beer and inventive cocktails.
