I've been meaning to go to Benihana for ages! I adore teppanyaki. And after that fantastic dinner at Matsuri a few years ago, I can't believe it's taken me 3 years (or is it more?!) to get out for another teppan meal in London.
Thank God for birthdays and friends!
My husband and I take golf lessons over the weekend (learning to play golf opens up our holiday options a fair bit we realised a while ago, so here were are!), so every Sunday we find ourselves in Chiswick, hungry. This weekend being the Ride London bike event, we landed up on Chiswick High Road on a Saturday. Just as well, Kisaku it turns out is closed on Sunday!
I picked Matsuri for a farewell dinner with a friend last night. And am I glad I did! Tucked away in quiet Bury Lane, with a very unassuming entrance, it's easy to miss Matsuri, unless you're looking for it. The dining area is decorated simply and elegantly, with Japanese fans and paintings adorning the walls and teppanyaki tables curving around the large open floor. For a Saturday night, Matsuri was unsurprisingly packed, but surprisingly not noisy at all!
