Stumbled across Sakurado whilst walking through Kensington last week. Such a lovely experience, the Sushi was really lovely and fresh, the Matcha cake was amazing along with great service, will definitely be back again soon.

Me and my partner came to visit this dessert restaurant after finding out they had the “UK’s Number 1 Matcha Mille Crepes”. We love trying new things and we love crepe cakes so we thought it would not disappoint. The restaurant itself was beautiful and...lovely but I wish I could say the same for what we ate. We ordered their Matcha Crepe cake and also Coconut Bubbletea. The crepe cake was dry and tbh it tasted stale. The coconut bubbletea wasn’t even made properly, the coconut powder was still floating around the drink and it just tasted like water with disgusting pieces of powder floating around. It looked like the owner was there and I was going to say something but my partner stopped me because he wanted to leave ASAP. Rather than making small talk with customers, I would suggest you overlook training and make sure staff know what they are doing. I’ve been a waitress and restaurant supervisor before and will NEVER serve the food/drink the way yours was. What a huge disappointment!More

Lots of attention to detail in the interior drew us in off the street for a light lunch. We enjoyed the sushi, fresh-made before us, and this is the pioneering UK home of the 'sushi burger', a novel take on sushi - a 'sandwich' of...sorts, that you pick up in a sheet of seaweed, that, in of its self, adds a nice maritime accent to the flavours. When it fell apart a little, I just carried on with chop sticks as usual, enhanced with the traditional pickled ginger and wasabi. The miso was delicious. We just kept trying different dishes until we were happily sated. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, attentive to tidying-up, and generally personable. Rather intrigued by the dizzying selection of mille crepes - never seen or heard of one before, we decided to try the Japanese speciality of 'matcha' - made from green tea! It certainly is extraordinary, a Marmite moment for some perhaps. I thought it tasted of balloons at first; but it grew on me, for its texture and subtle flavour, and that besides, it looks fabulous. We really enjoyed our visit and encourage you to stop by for afternoon mille crepes - I think perhaps 14 varieties (I can recall passion fruit, mango, tiramisu, salted caramel), or a fine sushi meal at the bar or comfy seating room towards the back. If you are in a rush, or wish to treat your own guests, they also provided very smartly boxed sushi and cakes to go. We had beer and wine, service was included, and it was still only £44 for the both of us. Not at all bad for Kensington. Go find them on Gloucester Road.More

I had a superb birthday dinner here and it was a pleasure meeting Mei. She is intelligent, friendly, accommodating and the little treats from her and her team have made my evening an amazing one. Their Japanese cake and the sushi burger are the best...I’ve ever tried - I will definitely come back and I recommend this place to everyone!More

Matcha Mille Crepe and Matcha Tiramisu were absolutely divine! I am a huge fun of matcha, and the matcha desserts here were the best I ever have had in London. Loved the whole vibe of the place. Staff were very attentive. It’s a good place...to relax and meet friends. I will 100% go back.More

Cute little boutique bakery. We saw that they served food, but only had dessert as we came after dinner. The Matcha Tiramisu and Matcha Mille Crepe were delicate and delicious. A lot of the other desserts looked great as well and would be great to...back.More

Nice place, decor is good. Quite small, but excellent desserts. Can be busy at times, so try to go when it's quieter.

Looking for a nice lunch with great reviews and what a surprise!!! - products not fresh, rancid spicy oil, salad wilted, even the rice was badly cooked - miserable quantities: a salmon bowl served with simply the quarter of a smoked salmon slice ! And...when we asked for more salmon they brought us just a second quarter of slice... Heavily disappointed!!!!More

We went to Sakurado to try their Japanese patisserie. The black sesame Mille crepe was simply amazing, light, fluffy, creamy and flavoursome. Friends had the salted caramel which was also delicious. The owners were super friendly and made us feel super welcome. Highly recommended visit...for cake lovers!More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
