i ordered a birthday cake for my son, i already informed is a surprised cake. but the shop called my son a day before they deliver. most horrible they put a note with the price written. how can they do such crazy irresponsible silly mistake....over the price, why a whole cake still need to pay extra decoration. the 10 pound extra decoration was soo simple. not worth it. i will never come or order to this shop anymore. is really badMore

This is a cute little Instagrammable cafe in Kensington. We did a detour here after visiting the Natural History museum. I loved the matcha tiramisu and would definitely drop by again if I was in the area.

Lovely little taste of Japan, seeing as we cannot travel further afield at the moment! Matcha crepe cake was delicious. As was the Wobbly cheese cake! Very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommend for dessert lovers in London. Will be back soon!

Stumbled across Sakurado whilst walking through Kensington last week. Such a lovely experience, the Sushi was really lovely and fresh, the Matcha cake was amazing along with great service, will definitely be back again soon.

Me and my partner came to visit this dessert restaurant after finding out they had the “UK’s Number 1 Matcha Mille Crepes”. We love trying new things and we love crepe cakes so we thought it would not disappoint. The restaurant itself was beautiful and...lovely but I wish I could say the same for what we ate. We ordered their Matcha Crepe cake and also Coconut Bubbletea. The crepe cake was dry and tbh it tasted stale. The coconut bubbletea wasn’t even made properly, the coconut powder was still floating around the drink and it just tasted like water with disgusting pieces of powder floating around. It looked like the owner was there and I was going to say something but my partner stopped me because he wanted to leave ASAP. Rather than making small talk with customers, I would suggest you overlook training and make sure staff know what they are doing. I’ve been a waitress and restaurant supervisor before and will NEVER serve the food/drink the way yours was. What a huge disappointment!More

Lots of attention to detail in the interior drew us in off the street for a light lunch. We enjoyed the sushi, fresh-made before us, and this is the pioneering UK home of the 'sushi burger', a novel take on sushi - a 'sandwich' of...sorts, that you pick up in a sheet of seaweed, that, in of its self, adds a nice maritime accent to the flavours. When it fell apart a little, I just carried on with chop sticks as usual, enhanced with the traditional pickled ginger and wasabi. The miso was delicious. We just kept trying different dishes until we were happily sated. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, attentive to tidying-up, and generally personable. Rather intrigued by the dizzying selection of mille crepes - never seen or heard of one before, we decided to try the Japanese speciality of 'matcha' - made from green tea! It certainly is extraordinary, a Marmite moment for some perhaps. I thought it tasted of balloons at first; but it grew on me, for its texture and subtle flavour, and that besides, it looks fabulous. We really enjoyed our visit and encourage you to stop by for afternoon mille crepes - I think perhaps 14 varieties (I can recall passion fruit, mango, tiramisu, salted caramel), or a fine sushi meal at the bar or comfy seating room towards the back. If you are in a rush, or wish to treat your own guests, they also provided very smartly boxed sushi and cakes to go. We had beer and wine, service was included, and it was still only £44 for the both of us. Not at all bad for Kensington. Go find them on Gloucester Road.More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
