Peruvian and Japanese fusion cuisine at UNI

If you are looking for a new restaurant in Belgravia look no further. I headed to UNI which is a fusion of Japanese and Peruvian, just minutes from Victoria and I was not disappointed. Actually my mum and I decided to have a bit of quality time together and went out for one of the best meals we’ve had in a longtime. Believe me that really says a lot as I travel so much with work and am lucky to have been invited to some of the best restaurants in the world with work.

UNI brings vibrant colours, flavours and textures of the very best in Peruvian and Japanese fusion cuisine, Nikkei to the Belgravia area, London. Taking its name from the Japanese word for the sea urchin, a Japanese delicacy, the Andrew Martin-designed restaurant and sushi bar is open for lunch and dinner, Monday to Friday inclusive and Saturday from 5pm.

The creation of former Nobu chef Rolando Ongcoy, the menu at UNI offers a selection of grilled meats and fish such as succulent Wagyu beef and juicy black cod, the highest quality sushi and sashimi, and an inventive selection of tempura and maki with perfectly balanced sharp flavours and an accent on colour.  The Peruvian influence is prevalent throughout UNI’s menu, with touches such as an anticucho sauce with the black cod as well as ceviche and tiraditos peruano.
