Have had gyozas at Stockbridge market always been impressed and wanted to try for quite a while. Perhaps we caught the team on an off night but was nonchalant at best. Arrived with a reservation and got ignored for a good 5 minutes before anyone greeted us at the door. No hello or any acknowledgment. Then finally sat it took 15/20 mins before anyone took our drinks order or food. It was not busy. We finally ordered and the food didn’t disappoint whatsoever it was great. The service aspect felt disjointed and there was no system it seemed. Would be willing to give it another go as surroundings and food is great but needs to improve on basics of service as it was so average.

Exceptional service as well as quality and price of food. The server went above and beyond for us, often showing the initiative to customize our orders based on our individual reactions. For example, he noticed my girlfriend removing onions from her soup, since she is highly sensitive to them, and immediately replaced it for her without even us requiring to ask.

The sushi was fantastic, tasty, fresh and plenty of choice. Equally fantastic, was the service, I could not fault it at all . We were well looked after and never felt rushed to order more or to leave once we had finished. I would highly recommend Harajuku and I will definitely return!

Tempura batter a bit stodgy and pork a bit dry. Fish very fresh. Miso soup nice. Rice wet. Dumplings very good. Specials tempura sold out at 6pm seemed a bit odd. Excellent service.

Quite disappointed by our visit. Our order was taken wrong - we were sent some dishes that we didn’t even order and were waiting over an hour for some final dishes to arrive. It was difficult to get the attention of staff and when we came to pay they still billed us for the items we didn’t even order or receive. After paying, we were told we had underpaid (we hadn’t, but it took a while to clear this up with the staff). I had booked a table and the restaurant had taken another large table for the same time. We ordered first but the kitchen were sending out both tables’ orders at the same time? The quality of the food suffered. The waiting staff looked overworked and unable to give attention to tables properly. They should have more waiting staff during peak times. All in all a bit of a mess.

Bit slow in the service (had to remind them we were going to theatre) and although food is delicious it isn't a bargain

Service was incredibly accommodating, quick and friendly as we had pre-warned then we had a very short turn around for our sitting and all staff did their best to make sure we enjoyed ourselves in the short time frame. Thank you to all.
