Robata is a small izakaya-style spot on Old Compton Street. There are plenty of bao, there are sashimi sets, and there are a whole load of skewers fresh from the robata grill to get involved in. A lot of the dishes here come heavy on the sauce, and you can definitely find far better bao in London, but it’s a decent place to stop in for some sake if you’re in the area.
