Yummy japanese restaurant worth trying, especially if you have the tastecard! I had the chicken katsu curry bento box for lunch here yesterday and it was great. A bento box split into foursies with good sized portions: rice, the chicken katsu curry, Japanese salad, and stir-fried noodles, along with a small scoop of pickled radishes in the center. And it comes with a miso soup as well. Definitely a filling lunch, normally priced at £9, but with the tastecard only £4.50! The service is good, my glass was never low on water and the food arrived promptly.
A few notes about using the tastecard at this place: you DO need to call to book in advance, but honestly more of a formality, this place isn't really packed with customers. And there's some fine print about ordering off the a la carte menu.. basically my friend and I each ordered a bento box, but apparently needed to also order at least one appetizer to get the 50% off tastecard deal? I just chucked in an order of salmon nigiri and it was fine.
Love that I work 5 minutes from here, I'll be back :)
If you're looking for authentic Teppanyaki food, this isn't it, but great place for a fun night out with a large group - and everyone's meal arrives at the same time. We went on a Tuesday night, when the food is half price (which made the cost about right). Friendly, welcoming staff. Good choice of dishes and everything well cooked, but having just experienced the real thing on a business trip to the Far East, I'll just have to carry on searching.
Best night ever!!
Awesome food, excellent service and a chef who entertains but also throws food at you!!
What a night!
No recent reviews for this place which is a surprise. I live locally and often it's busy mid week as they are part of some voucher deal groups. I have been to Sen Nin once and did not have a discount voucher and the food is ok value you can make it expensive if you go for Kobe beef. Portions size OK. Staff were friendly and enjoyed the chefs trick. Food tasted delicious and the menu is huge. Cool experience to sit at hot plates but I recommend this for groups of 3 or more.
Fun place although it felt slightly mass produced (even though everything is made fresh in front of you). And if you are fewer than a party of 8, be prepared to share a grill table if that is where you want to sit. Even for large groups the seating arrangement is slightly odd in that you sit far away from others around the edges of the grill table. The food is tasty, the service is friendly, and you will finish with a warm and full tummy. No complaints but not somewhere I would regularly or for a meal where you want the atmosphere for an intimate conversation
What a gem ! We had such a fantastic experience at Sen Nin. We had the ''summer sizzler'' set menu and would highly recommend this to everyone. It perfectly encapsulates all the wonderful flavours of Japanese food : From fantastic sushi to crispy spring rolls to various cuts of fresh meats and fish, traditionally cooked right in front of you by an interactive Japanese chef ! What an experience! The restaurant itself is small an intimate and the staff were super-attentive, fast and friendly. An extensive and reasonably priced cocktail menu was also on offer. All round, a special and unusual dining experience - would be a great idea for a special occasion like a birthday or group dinner. Highly recommended !
