The cocktail menu also has an exotic twist, from Shikoku Spritz (a blend of aloe vera juice, jasmine, Lanique rose liqueur, Beefeater gin, soda and prosecco) to Beijing Slings (made with Wyborowa vodka, Umeshu, jasmine, vanilla, lime, apple juice, cherry syrup and plum bitters) in addition to wine and sake selections.

Theatrical decor sets the scene for the experience – from the pink pagoda that greets guests at the entrance to the restaurant’s green onyx floor and antique gold mirrored bar on the first floor. A collection of antique samurai warriors will watch over diners as they take in the views of St Paul’s Cathedral.
