Kurobuta is located in Marble Arch, and provides an interesting dining experience. Itís the sister property of the well-renowned Kurobuta pop up restaurant on Kings Road, Chelsea.

Kurobuta serves exquisitely delicious Japanese cuisine. With emphasis on presentation, itís a joy ordering anything from the menu. Seeing it being prepared and served up is like a work of art, itís an experience to see in person.

Itís a casual dining experience in a small intimate space. The staff are really friendly, and you get a very personable feel from the staff and restaurant. There is loud music from the likes of Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix to liven up the atmosphere.

The menu has been developed by Scott Hallsworth, an Aussie with a wealth of experience working in Michelin-starred kitchens. He turned his hand to Japanese cuisine and presents wonderfully designed dishes both in flavour and presentation.

ďSeeing it being prepared and served up is like a work of art.Ē

While browsing the menu we enjoyed Flamed Edamame with Sake, Lemon, Butter and Maldon Salt. Very refreshing. We ordered a bottle of 2012 Domaine de la Mordoree, Cotes du Rhone. A vigorous wine with a firm fruit flavour, a good pairing for Japanese food.

For our starters we ordered two servings of Miso Soup followed by Salmon Gravadlax and Avocado Tartare with Dill Mayo, Rice Crunchies and Fresh Yuzu Zest. An eclectic range of flavours from the orient, delicious!

Our main course was in the form of Tea Smoked Lamb with Smokey Nasu and Spicy Korean Miso. And a Kombu Roasted Chilean Seabass with Spicy Shiso Ponzu, with a side order of Steamed Rice.

We couldnít manage desserts, but the food was absolutely fabulous. Japanese cuisine really leans towards smooth flavours that blend seamlessly together when done right. We really enjoyed our dining experience at Kurobuta, and it gets a positive recommendation.
