Chisou Review

Chisou is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things we learnt about Chisou restaurant in Chiswick:

1) There is a certain ring saying Chisou in Chiswick. No, this quaint restaurant isn’t named after the local area, but actually means “feast” and I've certainly had quite a few of those in leafy Chiswick. Chisou also has branches in Mayfair and Knightsbridge.

2) Chisou is well hidden in a back alleyway, like walking through the back streets of Shinjuku in Tokyo searching for that ultimate sushi dining experience.

3) If you frequent the Yo Sushi and Wasabi’s of this world, you might think salmon is the bee’s knees. Wait until you try the “king of fish”, blufin fatty tuna. It readily dissolves in your mouth like a luxury marshmallow. Before the environmentalists go up in arms, Chisou’s fatty tuna is sustainably obtained from farmed stocks in Spain.

4) Hamachi truffle sashimi is equally regal, if not quite authentically Japanese as manager Yasuhiro Komatsu confirmed. I suspect a Hollywood invention much like Nobu.

5) The feast continues with a ubiquitous soft-shelled crab; what makes the Chisou version a winner is its lack of oiliness. You actually taste mouthfuls of quality crab rather than oil dripping from your mouth.

6) Surely another new age foodie invention is the matcha panna cotta. The list of health benefits of matcha grows longer by the day, so it was logic that dictated the combination of this miracle ingredient with any dessert.

7) No banquet is complete without a celebratory drink, which in the case of Chisou is sake,: budget sake, premium sake, floral sake and any other sakes imaginable. In fact, decorative bottles are dotted throughout the restaurant.

8) Unsurprisingly, the owner of Chisou is sake sommelier extraordinaire. Frenchman, David Leroy has a Japanese wife and has won numerous awards. If there’s sake you want that they don’t stock, it’s probably safe to say it’s not worth drinking.

9) David’s wife is clearly the boss in terms of interior decorations with its classical Japanese looks: dark wooden panels, comfortable semi-circular booths and a sushi bar centrepiece. The 1st floor is also a sake lounge.

10) If you try looking for their menu online, you wont find any prices. Be aware, Chisou isn’t for budget dining, but you might struggle to find better places in London to try some progressive Japanese classics.
