There are so many restaurants in London that I want to visit just now – my list is actually getting a little bit insane – and top of that list was Sake no Hana, Green Park. So having not seen Kirsty and Frankie for a while (any time spent apart from these girls is too long) we decided to make a girls’ date night and head down to Sake no Hana and try it out.

Keen to try the restaurant, but not wanting to spend a huge amount of money, we found an amazing offer on OpenTable  for the Taste of Sake no Hana menu: 5 courses and a glass of Prosecco for £29!

Well, who can say no to that?!

As we were perusing the menu our waiter brought our glasses of Prosecco and offered to explain the menu to us.

I was really struck by the decor of the restaurant: it’s such a unique restaurant decor and I really felt as though I had been transported out of London for a few hours!

As we had an early sitting the restaurant was very quiet for the first hour that we were there which ensured that the service was even more attentive.

Firstly, we were brought Shiro Misoshiru, white miso soup, which we were recommended to drink straight from the bowl as the Japanese would traditionally do.

It was deliciously salty, and I loved the addition of the spring onion which gave the soup a really delicious flavour.

For the rest of the meal we ordered exactly the same dishes! Great minds eh? Not great for blog photography, but we made excellent choices so it was definitely worth it. All the food was of the highest quality, and even though it was just a “taste” menu, we were all pleasantly full at the end of our delicious meal.

For starters we opted for the Ebi Tempura with Ume Somen, prawn tempura with white noodles, which was truly exquisite. Portions weren’t scrimped on as we were served at least five prawns each. The tempura was beautifully light and the prawns themselves were incredibly fresh and full of flavour.

For our sushi course we opted for salmon again (Angie would have been proud!) and ordered the Masu-Sushi, salmon, tuna, white fish, salmon roe and the Spicy Salmon Maki, spicy salmon, shiso, cucumber and mango.

The Masu-Sushi box was delicious and so beautifully presented. Again, you could tell the fish was very high quality as it was buttery soft and bursting with flavour. It was the presentation that really blew me away: I’d never seen anything served quite in this way and loved the unique touch.

As for the Spicy Salmon Maki, well, spicy is certainly the word! I could have done with a little more mango as I didn’t really feel that the full flavour of it was evident behind the spice but these were a great palette awaking dish!

When it came to main courses, we felt the need to continue our salmon themed dinner and ordered the Salmon Hoba Teriyaki, char-grilled salmon on hoba leaf with teriyaki sauce. Wonderfully presented and so simple which really allowed the natural flavour of the fish to shine through.

I couldn’t fault this dish at all, it really was perfect: the thick, meaty salmon gave a wonderful contrast to that which we had had earlier in the meal whilst being equally as flavoursome.

I may have also ordered a Raspberry and Apple Mai Tai (as you can see!) which was a real treat. You can’t beat a good cocktail and this certainly fit the bill.

All too soon it was dessert time: for their signature dessert we had a mango panna cotta which was the perfect end to a very perfect meal.

Creamy and yet still light it was a fantastic panna cotta. I particularly loved the different ways that the mango was served – it really added a different dimension to the dish.

As it was now 8ish the restaurant was filling up – even on a Tuesday night I’d recommend you book as it seemed that by the time we left almost every table was full!

We sat back and enjoyed the rest of our cocktails whilst I snapped away at the interior of the restaurant.

If you’re looking for a lux dining experience without the price tag I’d highly recommend the Taste of Sake no Hana menu as it really was incredible.

We wandered off into the night, and headed home for a girly TV binge!

I was thoroughly impressed by Sake no Hana and I know I’ll be back, both to try the full menu, and to visit more of the Hakkasan group!
