This place is my favourite now! I had dinner to celebrate my mom's birthday and Ginza made her day so perfect!! (Handwriting birthday card was so cute!) Food was amazing, service was even better..! I usually don't write reviews but this place is just amazing! I would visit again for sure. Thank you again!

We were immediately welcomed on arrival, nothing was too much trouble, the menu was explained to us - and how to eat some of it! As it was our joint birthday, they wrote a birthday message on a slate server with chocolate and arranged it with ice cream and fruit which was delicious, took our photo and popped that into a signed birthday card - a lovely touch!

Fabulous meal with absolutely delicious food, great service and really wonderful attention from all the staff from the welcome at the door, from the lovely chefs and all the attentive, friendly waiting staff. We simply couldn’t have had a better celebration for the birthdays of our twins who love this restaurant soooo much, they asked for this visit as their main birthday present. Thank you Ginza Onodera. You all gave us a really incredible day to remember

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the service was absolutely superb. The waitress brought us special plate and took instant photo for us on a hand made written card, wishing us a happy anniversary. It made the occasion very special. Highly recommend

Been to Ginza Onodera two other times before this and enjoyed the time there. However, this time, the dining experience was not as nice as before. The food wasn't as flavourful as before which was a shame and service was slow (main course came out 30 mins after we finished our starters...) It was quite noisy that day as well... not sure if I would go back... :S

I was quite disappointed with the standard of service firstly because I ordered a lunch menu when booking the table yet the staff did not seem to be informed of this and did not offer any apology. This also happened the last time I was here. In addition, the waiter seemed unaware of the names of the dishes they were serving, frequently getting the names wrong, as well as putting their thumbs into the plate when bringing it out.
The food was excellent so it is a disappointment that the service is letting this restaurant down.

Onodera is probably the most authentic Japanese restaurant in London from Japanese point of view. I would highly recommend anyone to go there if you want to try real Japanese food. Service was also excellent complete attention to details in true Japanese "Omotenashi" spirit. Unless you have a very specific dietary requirement I'd suggest to go for one of the set menu. My recommendation is AOI menu which you can sample mushroom Dobin-Mushi.
Restaurant manager was also brilliant looking after us. He took a picture of us and printed out on a card to celebrate my friend's birthday. Also I was surprised with their carefully selected wine list. I'm really looking forward to going back there.

It was my birthday and I haven’t been to the restaurant since it’s redecorated and branded. First of all, the service is good as usual and of course, the teppanyaki chefs are talkative and been interactive. Just that the sauce of the vegetable is way too salty. But then the wagyu beef is alright.

What surprised me is the waiter has came to take a picture with me and my friend, and there’s a birthday card in the end.

Last, the manager is too nice that he turns a mistake(a Chicken Kaarage that was accidentally added to the bill) into some Dassai 50 I want🤣. (Thanks Mr.)

In the end, I would still visit again to try out the Sushi. But then really recommend the chef to adjust the portion of salt in the sauce.

Nice decor and amazing sushi. The rest of the food is a bit on a blank side.
The worst part is the service. There are way too many extra people working in the restaurant and they have nothing to do. While we just finished the last sip of the wine and put the glass on the table the waiter immediately took it. The whole time you have a feeling of been watched and every 2 minutes your conversation with the partner interrupts by different questions of personal. The whole atmosphere does not allow you to relax and enjoy your dinner.

This restaurant is a sparkling little gem in the shadow of Sake No Hana. I think the food and the ambience are better and the sushi is amazing. They had a flutist and drum player but it was in no way overwhelming and the service was pleasant and efficient. 5 stars!
