For the above reason – which tastes even better than how it looks – Sumosan is in our list of top 5 restaurants in London. A dome made from sugar covers a milk chocolate cake smothered in green tea mousse served with fresh coconut ice cream. AND it gets better as warm, melted white chocolate oozes out of the cake as soon as it’s cut.
Sumosan is a Japanese restaurant in the heart of Mayfair with Nobu-quality dishes served in a laid-back atmosphere. Minimal effort has gone into furnishing the venue – think plain wooden tables and chairs with the only comfort being a cushion on the chair – but that’s part of the charm that attracts a diverse mix of diners after one thing and that’s superb food. Christina Aguilera and Will Smith have visited on separate occasions and gone un-noticed as people were focussed on their mouth-watering meals.
On the main course menu, you’ll find sushi so fresh it could swim back into the sea with the sushi rice succulently juicier than in the chain sushi bars. The black cod in miso will transform your dining experiences forever as you’ll want to keep returning to Sumosan to have it over and over again.

Cost: £125 for two including a basic bottle of wine and the fabulous white chocolate fondant. Quite pricey but this is Mayfair.
