The Araki

I was lucky enough to visit the Araki during its opening week, at the Araki you are always seated at the chef’s table with almost every dish prepared by sushi master Mitsuhiro Araki himself.

Mitsuhiro Araki closed his restaurant in Ginza where he held three Michelin stars and moved to London, Uk in 2014 giving people the opportunity to experience ‘Edomae sushi’ which is an authentic style of Japanese cuisine originating over 200 years ago.

The menu revolves around high-end ingredients that the chef sources personally from all over Europe. Chef Mitsuhiro Araki is a true artist tweaking his dishes to suit a european palate he created the most delicious tuna tartare topped with almost a full white Alba truffle, he spares no expense especially since each dinner has to pay a minimum of £300.
