“Next, some of the best deep-fried chicken you’ll ever eat. The karaage appears as half a dozen little balls (boned-out wings?) of unbelievably sweet and juicy chicken (value at £6.50), on a saucer with half a lemon. Another plastic squirter is provided, this time of chilli sauce. After one mouthful, I yodelled for the wasabi mayonnaise again and slashed both relishes all over the plate and wiped my chicken liberally in them. Dreamy.”

“With no reservations necessary, this underground bar catches the hazy, debauched glamour of Tokyo after dark: a little bit seedy, a little bit sexy. With flavours leaning beyond the usual at a London bar – think rice-washed gin, sake, infusions of sesame, snacks like tempura – it has all the hallmarks of an authentic Japanese hideaway, while somehow staying very London.”

“For all the swish happening upstairs, 7 Tales manages to retain some of the spirit of the legendary late-night club that used to occupy the Turnmills site. It’s this sexy, buzzy vibe that makes it not just an outstanding restaurant bar for an after-dinner nightcap, but a destination for London’s cool kids in itself.”

“There’s a theory that Jason Atherton is expanding his dining empire so quickly that standards must drop and creativity wane. That’s a load of rubbish. Sosharu, the chef’s new London restaurant, is the most exciting since his first, Pollen Street Social, which opened in 2011.”

“Sosharu is all about the little details, an aggregation of tiny factors that lifts it from a decent Japanese restaurant to a place that you really shouldn’t miss. That Jason Atherton is going to make a million, I tell you.”
