Head to this cool, contemporary Japanese restaurant to enjoy slithers of premium fish and wagyu beef seared on hot stones right at your table.

Hot stone cooking has been used across Asia for hundreds of years, and now you can try it yourself in the heart of Chapel’s Market, a short stroll from Angel tube. All hot stones arrive with butter and your choice of sauce, and you won’t want to miss out on flavour filled sides such as tangy kimchi and salad with zingy yuzu dressing.

As well as hot stone plates, the restaurant offers all your favourite Japanese dishes. Enjoy stunningly fresh sushi, sashimi and maki hand rolls, as well as classic Korean comfort food bibimbap, served in a hot stone bowl so it carries on sizzling as you tuck in.

Feeling thirsty? Take your pick from a fabulous selection of Japanese sakes, or opt for the sake flight to sample three and figure out which is your favourite. A global selection of wines is also on offer, making this the perfect spot for a sophisticated catch up with friends or quirky date night.

Reviews

We went to Hot Stone for our anniversary meal and it definitely did not disappoint. The staffs and chef was all very welcoming and attentive. The food was amazing and the flavours was out of this world! It is definitely the best tasting sushi I have had. I definitely recommend the seared fatty tuna and crunchy eel roll. The fatty tuna just melts in your mouth. The A5 wagyu beef was also delicious and fun to cook at the same time. We have had an amazing experience and it had made our anniversary very memorable and special. We will definitely be visiting again!

We’d been dying to get a table here for weeks and kept missing the booking slots. It was top of our list for places to try and it did not disappoint.
The restaurant is small so has a great atmosphere, the service was attentive but not too over the top and the food was even better than expected! Highly recommend the black cod and the fatty tuna.
It was the perfect meal and I can’t wait to go back!

We were looking for a good dining experience meal. We saw hot stone and thought it looked interesting. The reviews across the internet suggested it was popular. How can I begin to explain the experience? From the second we walked in the chefs and staff were incredibly welcoming. They really knew their stuff and helped us decide what to try. They were calm and relaxed and made the experience really special. If you're considering trying this place, please take my advice, go for it. I'll 100% be going back. Awesome food, great service and 50% off. What more could you want?

Went to Hot Stone with a group of friends for dinner and we were not disappointed! Food was incredible as well as the service (attentive but not over the top), recommendations were spot on and servings were generous. Sushi was the best we've had in London - will definitely be back!!

Hot Stone is 100% the Best Sushi in London!

The Sashimi and Sushi Selection were presented beautifully and had a good variety of options. We loved the effort put into each and every detail of the dish, which made the dining experience even more flawless.

The Crunchy Eel Roll was a dream! The Eel was prepared perfectly and was one of our favourites.

The Seared Fatty Tuna melted in your mouth. The Fatty Tuna and Caviar Roll was dreamy! The perfect mouthful!

Overall, Hot Stone is one of the best restaurants in London. The Sushi is magnificent and the Wagyu was exquisite. We cannot wait to return to try more of the amazing and well-crafted menu!

- dined at Hot Stone on

My family had a great time dining here. The food is very good quality. We have beautifully presented boxes of sushi and sashimi. Also especially love the fatty tuna with truffle and caviar sushi, and the best one is A5 Kobe beef literally melted in the mouth. Best experience with food in my life. We will be back soon.

Really cute little restaurant on Chapel Market. Sweet decor and nice staff. The food was really really good and the sushi definitely one of the best we’ve had around London. The courgette tataki with the truffle yuzu, though simple looking, was so flavoursome! We went for the special maki rolls - Suzuki (sea bass & pomegranate) and our favourite of the night the Crunchy Hot Stone roll made with king prawns and crunchy tempura flakes was way more than just your standard sushi! We ended with sharing a seafood mix hot stone which I was terrified of touching seeing as it’s heated to 400 degrees - but wow the fish cooked so well, and melted in our mouths. Definitely worth the experience and we look forward to coming back.

Came here for an anniversary meal and it totally exceeded expectations! Lovely staff, great service, beautiful presentation, delicious wine and absolutely phenomenal food! The sashimi was literally melt in your mouth and the wagyu beef was so juicy and full of flavour. The hot stone cooking makes a lovely immersive dining experience and means you can cook things exactly to your own taste. Couldn’t recommend this place more and will definitely be coming again! Thanks for a memorable evening :)

Had an amazing dining experience at Hot Stone on a Saturday night. The service was so friendly and all of the staff made us feel really comfortable. I would recommend sitting by the bar as you can watch the chefs prepare the food.

The food was delicious! We tried the chuka wakame (seaweed salad) which we had never had before but was so tasty. Would recommend the crunchy hot stone roles, crunchy eel roles and sushi platter. The mixed sea food hot stone was a lot of fun!

Will definitely be back soon! Thank you Hot Stone for a great date night!

Hot Stone may be new to the Chapel Market but everything we received over the course of our meal came prepared by professional, experienced hands.
The quality of the ingredients and the presentation was excellent.
The space is classic Japanese, simple and elegant.
A delicious meal. So glad we decided to try it out!

My girlfriend and I had an exceptional evening at Hot Stone. We were warmly greeted by their friendly chefs and wait staff. We enjoyed three starters, two mains and a dessert and each dish was delicious, and I can say it's the best Japanese we have tasted. Definitely plan to come back. 10/10!

Brilliant little restaurant in an unexpected area. Sushi was lovely and great value for money. Got to try something new with the butterfish. We followed the sushi with the Hot Stone rump steak and fish platter. It’s a bit of fun and yummy :). Staff are lovely and helpful, will definitely return.

I must admit, I had high expectations of Hot Stone after reading all the fantastic reviews and seeing their Instagram feed. The food was indeed tasty and well presented, and overall it was an enjoyable experience with First Table. However I think I will be reluctant to go back and pay full prices - e.g. the sashimi selection had 7 pieces (wonderfully presented but small pieces) for £25 which is very expensive.

Really fun meal--wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but this place has had some great reviews and seems popular. Is a nice small space, with really friendly and helpful staff who will give you a bit of detail and background of the food on offer. Tried a couple of the sushi and sashimi boxes (beautifully presented) and the hot stones (fun to cook your own food on). Menu was not particularly large, but with enough variety and interesting dishes to temp you for a second visit. High quality food prepared with the kind of care and attention you would expect from a upmarket Japanese restaurant. We had a table, but it was also be fun to sit at the counter and have a chance to watch things being prepared.

Hot Stone experience was highly entertaining but what we really fell in love with was Suzuki roll with seabass.

All the ingredients are very fresh and the chief has magic abolity to transform them into wonderful experiences.

Highly recommended, we’ll definitely come back again!

Amazing food, amazing service. Some of the best sushi I’ve eaten. Fresh, well presented and tasty. I’d definitely recommend the seared salmon sashimi. Going back again ASAP. Thanks to the chef who gave us free sake and a wagyu beef taster to celebrate the restaurant’s anniversary.

Best sushi my boyfriend and I have tried yet - and we have been to a lot of Japanese restaurants! All the dishes we had were extremely fresh, loved the fatty tuna sashimi and seared butterfish roll - very yummy. Would return.

We had a great night at Hot Stone, the location is not too far from the tube and the restaurant is very pretty from the inside.

Food wise we were really impressed with the quality, however unless you get sushi none of the dishes are very filling, yet delicious!

The service is also very attentive and kind, so we would come back any time!

We had a great dinner at Hot stone. The waitress explained to us about First Table offer the moment we sat down so there was no problem at all with using the voucher, which was really good. The service was fast and they constantly checked whether we were happy with the food. We had some rolls, the grilled aubergine and the black cod. I feel the rolls were more on the innovative side but were still delicious. The hot food however was authentic in proper Japanese style. The standard of the food was very high overall.

High quality Japanese food. The sashimi was excellent. Unfortunately we slightly overcooked our sirloin on the hot stone—perhaps we should’ve asked them to cook it for us instead to ensure perfection. The sauce, however, was very good, as were the sauces with the sashimi. The restaurant is still pricey, even with half off, but that’s typical of high quality Japanese food everywhere, and I’m glad we got to try this great restaurant in our neighborhood. I’m not sure we’ll go back again soon because of how expensive it is, but we were definitely impressed and we enjoyed our time.

The food was great the staff were friendly even though rather slow. The hot stone prawns and steak were of extremely high quality. Really liked the lighting and the cute wall covered in origami cherry blossoms. Would be a great place to take someone on a date to impress!

We had a nice meal at Hot Stone and they were very accommodating when our friends were late for the reservation. The food was delicious and the service was good. I also liked the atmosphere of the restaurant which was very modern Japanese. I thought the menu was pricey and it ended up being an expensive meal even with the discount so I was glad we had booked through first table! The deal doesn’t include anything wagyu which is a lot of the menu so it’s good to be aware of this before you book. Overall, a nice meal in a nice place.

When I entered the restaurant everyone said hello, which was quite nice, and I was sat very quickly. We had a plate of sushi each to start which tasted amazing and a hot stone as our main. It was a cool experience cooking our steaks and prawns. Our waiter was friendly and offered help as we said we had not been there before. Overall a fun experience!

I liked the experience of cooking your food on the hot stone however I wish there was more selection to make it into more of a 'meal' - plain rice or salad to go with it is just really bland! Was hoping to try their cheesecake but they had run out so keen to visit again to give it a go!
