Fiery by name and fiery by nature, Fujiyama serves the teppenyaki trend at full throttle. It says something that Fujiyama’s diners are a mixed bunch from across the world, many who will recommend it based on authentic experiences in Japan.
It’s one of the few independents that stand out along Clifton’s Regent Street, and the vibrant shop front and brightly lit interior draws crowds like moths to a candle.
It isn’t just Japanese food you get a taste of here – the Tokyo-style etiquette is incredibly charming. The careful consideration of the attentive staff is enough to make you blush, without feeling overwhelmed. The Fujiyama team will take you across the world while making you feel right at home.
On the food front, the sushi is sliced to prime thickness, and the teppenyaki dishes are well-caramelised and scattered with seasonings. The kitchen also experiments with East-meets-West combinations such as salmon cheese rolls. So bad it’s good.
