From the moment your kimono-clad waitress shows you to your table (or the intimate sushi bar, if you prefer), you can be sure that you are about to enjoy not only authentic, classical Japanese cuisine, but also the warmth and hospitality for which Japan is equally famous. Treat yourself to a house special, such as Grilled King Crab, Tataki Beef, or Dobinmushi, a delicate dish of clear soup, chicken, sea bass, prawn and mushroom, served in a traditional dobin teapot. Set dinners are also a wonderful way to try a range of dishes; try the Omakase course for the chef’s selection of dishes, tailored to the make the most of the freshest and most seasonal ingredients. There is also a range of set lunches, including sushi and tempura, which make Ikeda the perfect place for a smart West End lunch; go for the chirashi sushi option for a beautifully intricate and colourful sushi dish with a twist. For a peek at the outstanding culinary skills that go into creating the Ikeda menu, ask to sit at the open kitchen counter, where you can watch the chefs at work on the dishes that have made Ikeda a Mayfair institution.
