This new, two-level dining emporium will be the next rising star in the hub of busy Holborn. The ground floor has a sleek bar area to the right of the entrance complete with lounging sofas, great for pre dinner drinks and perfect to let off steam after a hard day's work. This opens up to the more formal dining area, a private room and a separate function room downstairs. Lacquered screens, polished floors, a diverse mix of Japanese paintings and artefacts, and a magnificent Samurai warrior create a tranquil and classically oriental theme throughout the restaurant.
Shimotsuki Restaurant is the brainchild of Chen Dong, a Master Sushi Chef and that of Restaurant Manager John Iglesias; the idea is to deliver authentic Japanese dishes and flavours in familiar settings. Shimotsuki is the month of November in Japanese, an eventful time in its calendar and the period of conceptualization for the restaurant.
Situated a stone throw away from Chancery Lane tube station on the Central Line, Shimo offers the traditional warmth of Japanese hospitality and authentic dishes at very reasonable prices. Shimo is the younger sister of Hazuki restaurant in Covent Garden. A full replica armour of the Samurai warrior and founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate is displayed in the restaurant. This is symbolic of Japanese history as November marks the start of the military campaign that succeeded in gaining complete control of the country and in making Edo (Tokyo) the new capital city.
Fully equipped with conference and presentation facilities, PA system, AV screen and sound proof technology, the downstairs function room is perfect for special celebrations or business meetings and presentations. You can also bring your own entertainment or ask for the restaurant assistance. Staff here are happy to work with you to ensure your event is a success. The downstairs function room can be hired for the exclusive use and if you’re planning a bigger event exclusive hire of the whole restaurant is available on request.
