If you’re looking for something slightly fancier than a Sushi box from Pret but better value than Black Cod Miso at Nobu, then Yashin is your spot. Tucked away on a side street just off High Street Kensington, this place is sophisticated but not stuffy - a neon sign reading ‘Without Soy Sauce’ hangs over the green tiled sushi bar upstairs, hinting at the restaurant’s quirky approach to Japanese dining.

The menu is a bit pricey but far from obscene, and worth it for the high quality fish and imaginative execution - think truffle-infused ponzu jelly and wagyu striploin with wasabi. The lunch menu - priced at around £15 for an assortment of sushi, salad, and miso soup - is your best bet for top-class, top-value dining.
