I have eaten at Abeno twice in the last month. Both times, the food has been of excellent quality - fresh seafood and a really good choice of appetisers and small plates - and the range of sake and cocktails is impressive. However, it is...More

Called in around lunch time following a meeting at the British Museum. Welcomed as a first time visitor and pleasantly surprised. Menu options understandable and order promptly taken. Food served after a slight delay which was explained by the hostess. Excellent lunch!!

This two star rating doesn't reflect the food, which we greatly enjoyed despite the lack of options for a vegetarian in our group, but the service. I called in advance and requested to book a table for 6.30 - I was told that wasn't possible...More

I’m not excited to go back. The Okonomiyaki is good but overpriced and the side dish we had was (cucumber, seaweed) was small, expensive and mediocre. The place is surprisingly customer unfriendly. We had two examples of this: They messed up or forgot four out...More
