Sushi des Artistes opens in South Kensington

Sushi des Artistes, a cabaret-inspired Japanese-European fusion restaurant, has opened in South Kensington.

The London restaurant is the first UK outpost from Sushi des Artistes in Spain, which was launched in Marbella six years ago by Jay Joden, Saito Taka, Ryu Oikawa and Borja Goizueta.

Housed in the space previously home to Malaysian restaurant Awana on Sloane Avenue, Sushi des Artistes comprises a bar, sushi bar and main dining room as well as piano bar where live music is played.

Executive head chefs Taka and Oikawa's menus aim to fuse ingredients from around the world - in particular, the Mediterranean - with traditional Japanese cuisine. A tasting menu is available for £95, while a set-lunch menu is served at £15.50 including Ko-Bachi (Japanese tapas) and miso soup as well a main course.

Signature dishes include: "Nothing At All" - Châteaubriand sashimi with fresh wasabi; "Shall We Dance" - three kinds of foie gras nigiri; and "Club Celebrity" - fresh black truffle and crispy soft shell crab tempura.

Desserts include: "Stars in the Night" - chocolate terrine with green tea cream with fondue chocolate sauce; and "Bon Anniversaire" - white chocolate Yuzu mousse with red cherry sauce.
