Endo at the Rotunda isn’t so much a once in a while restaurant as it is a once in a lifetime one. It’s a 10 or so-seater omakase spot, eight floors up opposite Westfield shopping centre in White City, serving sushi that will make you regret spending money on anything else for the rest of your life. Less of a restaurant and more of an interactive eating experience, everything is led by Endo—the headline act and head chef—while his backing band expertly prep and chat, before handing you an eye-twitch-inducing piece of six-day-aged fatty tuna.

From £195 per person

Ring a bell, be invited in by a polite server, and have one of the best sushi experiences in London. Roji, a 10-seater omakase spot in Mayfair, is the kind of special place that comes to mind when we get the inevitable “what is your favourite restaurant in London?” question. The intimate setup, with wooden wrap-around counter seating, gives you a front-row seat to the open kitchen. Description of each course, from the oyster limushi to the eight rounds of nigiri, only adds to the anticipation, especially when you see the wide-eyed astonishment of people served before you. This is one of the most memorable meals you’ll have in London.

There are plenty of omakase experiences in London and they’re almost always a special experience, but there’s something about Kurisu Omakase that feels a little different. The unique 18-course sushi experience mixes Japanese cooking with chef Chris Restrepo’s Thai-Colombian heritage, genuine brilliance, and inimitable made-in-Brixton charm. There are only eight seats in the intimate restaurant, and you’ll find yourself gawping at flame-torched pieces of fish, losing words over truffle and caviar-topped otoro, and belly laughing at the stories you’re told.

From £127 (shorter Sushi Omakase menu) and £187 (longer Sushi Tetsu Experience menu) per person

Sushi Tetsu is not an easy restaurant to get into. Reservations at this discrete seven-seater counter restaurant in Clerkenwell are released online every Monday at 12pm sharp for the following week, and snapped up instantly. However it is, unquestionably, worth it. There’s a very good chance that after tossing back a perfectly marbled, luscious piece of tuna nigiri that you won’t ever want to eat tuna again unless it’s this good. The experience itself is a traditional, respectful affair and makes for a meal you won’t forget.

From £92 per person

The omakase experience at Yashin Sushi will haunt you in the best way possible. Every time a sushi craving strikes, we get flashbacks of the genius, slightly sweet ponzu jelly on top of meltingly soft toro, the life-affirming zest factor of the orange soy that comes with the yellowtail, and the profound urge to weaponise our chopsticks to secure the last piece of best-in-class sashimi. It’s a glamorous counter-seating experience in Kensington that also operates as an ingredient trust fall. Don’t question the dash of nutty parmesan on the umami tuna or the lip-smacking green chilli sauce on your Scottish salmon, just go with it.

From £78 (lunch) and £108 (dinner) per person

Our favourite kind of omakase experience is one where you’re not told off for subtly scrolling through TikTok between courses. And Cubé, a laid-back spot in Mayfair, is the kind of easygoing place where you can do just that. Quietly chat away with your date while the team of chefs casually skin a 13kg trout behind the counter, or read a book as you wait for the squid nigiri to be placed in front of you. The point is this place serves excellent sushi, in an understated way. Plus, the incredible lunch omakase has 10 pieces of top-tier nigiri, a hand roll, and a dessert at a reasonable price, which is hard to come by in London.
