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.

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 :)

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!

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 is a joy. We were cheerfully welcomed on arrival by the chefs in the open kitchen, and the service remained immaculate throughout. The kitchen was run with the precision of a military ship, their skill and the care taken over cleanliness and presentation clearly evident. You could be entertained for hours watching them at work! We were very impressed.

The food? The food! Try everything, but don't you dare leave without ordering the crunchy Hot Stone roll. It's an opiate-like hit. Or the main attraction: the steak and sashimi stone plate. Tender ruby slices you sizzle to DIY perfection.

It's a lot of fun, so it's an ideal date or catch-up spot, but Hot Stone is more than just a concept restaurant; there is something extra special about the dining experience when cooking in this traditional Japanese way. But it's the heart and soul in the service that makes this place truly first class.

The wagyu rolls and tatakis were delicious. Was a little disappointed by the hot stone to be honest... not as advertised on Instagram at all but the meat quality was still good. Overall we had a good meal and glad we went.

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!

The staff was very attentive, they greeted us cheerfully on our way in and out the restaurant. The grilled aubergine from the starters was a winner! We also got crispy sushi and the hot stone tuna and salmon, cooking them was a fun experience. I also liked the detail of different chopstick rests on each table. We will be coming back soon!

We had an unbelievable time and a delicious meal throughout. Everything was perfection, and we received impeccable service, considering they knew we were on a dining deal. I cannot fault a single thing except being too full to eat any more of the incredible food!

Excellent food and service! Me and my husband are Sushi lovers and so when we went there we order 4 different sushi platters, and they were excellent. We also tried the salmon tartare, and it was unforgettable experience. I do recommend this restaurant if you are looking for an authentic Japanese sushi.

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!

The location was excellent as it was just 5 minutes from Angel tube station. The restaurant was medium-sized, spacious and airy, and the sakura-themed decor was relaxing. They were playing the usual J-pop and K-pop music. The waiters were very attentive, giving an introduction to using the hot stone.

The food was beautifully laid out and of course delicious. I'll definitely return to try the other dishes all of which look really good!

Good food and attentive staff. Only slight issue is that some sushi had too much mayonnaise dressing on it.

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.

The fish was all really good, but we could have used more instruction on the actual use of the hot stone. Suggested timings for each would have been helpful, the prawns were fairly straightforwards but how long to do the salmon/tuna was less obvious.
