Living Colours exhibition cocktail at AKIRA, Japan House London until 19 May 2019

Enjoy the Living Colours exhibition cocktail, 'Kyoto Colours', at AKIRA until 19 May 2019.

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 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.
