Jasper Gerard - 8/10

Friday, March 05, 2010 - Particularly delectable is the soft-shell crab spring roll. The crab has a wonderfully soft yet crunchy texture. Also impressive is the spicy tuna wasabi rolls with wasabi leaf, a spicier alternative to the more typical wasabi powder. The biggest surprise of all is the very traditional duck breast 'Hoba-yaki' with sweet miso and a faint scent of sandalwood, served on a magnolia leaf. The duck is incredibly smoky, almost bacon-esque, a taste that's expertly balanced by the sweetness of miso.

I had very high expectations, but was deeply disappointed. We ordered a grilled king crab with avocado and received ordinary crab which on the market costs half the price. The squid we had were so very chewy we couldn't eat them. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant at all.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 - Many people shirk when you mention that you like eel, but they tend to have jellied efforts in mind. Grilled and topped with a sweet sauce (Kabayaki sauce), the version at Dinings is probably the best I've tried in London. With a firm bite, not dissimilar to canned sardines but with a sweetness drawn from the sauce and a smokiness from the grilling, it's a joy to eat... Dinings is a great restaurant which serves fantastic sashimi and the lunch menu is worth investigating. Booking is advisable.
