For Izakaya in London, it's hard to beat Flesh and Buns. Note that the concept of Izakaya comes from the word "i" (to stay) and "sakeya" (place that sells sake). In Japan, it's the kind of place you drop by after work and drink your night away before the next day of work. In London, it's just pure gluttony.

Having been to Bone Daddies Soho,  Bone Daddies Shackfuyu and now Bone Daddies Flesh n Buns twice,  what is clear to see is that the Bone Daddies group can produce unique and inspired combinations of food that are well presented and boast a variety of textures and flavours. The decorations throughout the restaurants are similarly themed and successful in creating a sense that you are dining...more
