After a successful spell as a pop-up, Scott Hallsworth's restaurant turned permanent in fashionable Kings Road. Kurobuta is an intimate izakaya (traditional Japanese pub) featuring unfussy Robata-grilled dishes, tempura, sushi and more substantial plates – there’s also a great range of sakis on offer.

I am going to be the harshest reviewer so far, capitalizing on some of the theme's of others.

The Chilean sea bass was the highlight... more
