This izakaya-style Japanese is budget-busting, but when you consider its large plot in a swanky Knightsbridge postcode and exemplary sushi, this doesn’t come as a surprise. At Dinings, Japanese cuisine coalesces with European ingredients to create forward-thinking Japanese tapas, sushi and sashimi – finger food of the highest order.
What to order Start with the tiny tar-tar chips, loaded with tuna or yellowtail, then load up on sushi and sashimi. Also, there’s amazing Legado Iberian pork with sage and grilled chili garlic black cod.
Parent tip Do yourself a favor and book a reservation, especially to request to dine on the terrace during warm weather.
Pipsqueak tip The staff will be happy to tailor dishes to kids’ preferences.
