A special Japanese dining experience

The Japanese restaurant, AKIRA, is on the first floor of Japan House London in Kensington. Named after Chef Shimizu Akira, the restaurant presents a Japanese dining experience based on Akira’s ‘trinity of cooking’ principles - food, tableware and presentation.

Visit for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner to experience Japanese-style omotenashi hospitality and the theatre of cooking as chefs prepare dishes reflecting Japan’s diverse food offer, using seasonal ingredients over roaring robata (charcoal grill) flames. Highlights of the menu include imaginative sushi specialities and chargrilled kushiyaki skewers made from umami-rich wagyu beef, pork, chicken, seafood and vegetables. The Japanese staple of rice is prepared in a donabe, clay pot.

The dining experience is complemented by tableware the chef has sourced from artisans across Japan and drinks in fine Japanese glassware. Guests can also enjoy the Japanese bar, adjacent to the restaurant, serving an array of sake and original cocktails made using Japanese ingredients including rare sake, yuzu and shiso.

Afternoon Tea at Japan House London

AKIRA restaurant on the first floor of Japan House London offers a Japanese-style Afternoon Tea.

Guests can choose from a selection of beverages including green teas and smoked black teas, served with a seasonal platter of sushi, wagashi - Japanese sweets - and desserts. The afternoon menu will be served between 14:30 and 16:30 (with the restaurant closing at 17:00 to prepare for dinner service).
