St. James Street is going through something of a revival, thanks to recently-opened Inamo and now Cocochan at 38-40. While London certainly doesn’t need another pan-Asian restaurant, when it comes to this place it’s not about what Londoners want, it’s about what they need. And what they need (or rather, what we need) is lashings of super-sexy décor, including an industrial chic grey resin floor and sultry purple lighting, and an extensive menu of sushi, sashimi, curries and noodles that would please even business folk who spend half their lives in Asia. In short, it’s our kind of place, and we can’t wait to check it out. Full review coming soon.
