Murakami showcases authentic Japanese cuisine with its signature succulent sushi rolls and dishes from the robata grill that will leave you coming back time and again.
A must-try is its pressed Salmon Oshi with Murakami sauce, jalapeño and red pepper and Aburi Rainbow roll with Murakami sauce. Other specialities include addictive popcorn prawn tempura with spicy yuzu mayo and the flamed Rib eye with shiitake and yuzu sweet soy sauce.
Killer cocktails include the Negative Negroni – an Anglo-Asian mix of Kamm & Sons gin and Honjozo; Nashi Pear and Rosemary Cooler – fresh and wintery flavours all wrapped up into one drink with El Dorado rum, nashi pear, roasted rosemary, fresh lime and a spoon of sugar; or the festive Clementine and Kaffir Lime Margarita – a twist on the classic margarita which elevates tequila with the Asian flavours of kaffir lime and umami seasoning.
If the food isn't enough to tempt you, the stylish interiors should help. Sleek and simple in true Japanese fashion, they feature elegant wooden floorboards – an elegant background to the foliage-adorned walls are adorned with foliage adding a flash of colour.
Like the sound of that? We've got you covered – we've teamed up with Covent Garden Japanese restaurant Murakami to offer one lucky reader an evening of sake, sushi and all things umami for an alternative Christmas party.
