Nozomi is nestled in a side street round the corner from Harrods, right in the heart of Knightsbridge. I'm sitting on the fence with Nozomi. Although the food was great, service was prompt and professional and there were quite a few other tables occupied (I don't know about you guys, bu I'm not a fan of a dead, empty restaurant at night), it lacked a sort of je ne sais quoi for me, and didn't quite feel like an authentic Japanese establishment (throughout our dinner, the only music played was Arabic! Which, although I do enjoy, I don't think is quite suited to the restaurant). It was overall just lacking memorability, decor and ambiance-wise. Now, though, onto the important part (let's admit it, the only bit you're really interested in, right?), the food! This was good, although perhaps a tad overpriced (we are talking about Knightsbridge, after all).
We began with delicious prawn dumplings sitting on a tangy ponzu sauce and topped with a dollop of foie gras. Wolfed down in seconds.
