Great fun and good food
We had dinner at Sen Nin with our two children. The kids really enjoyed the "show" and the food was excellent. The staff was also very nice. The menu is good value if you book on toptable - otherwise it is expensive.
This was the most enjoyable dinner I have had in a long time!
The food was super, and the entertainment from the chef marvellous. Definitely one to go to as part of a big group for maximum entertainment!
We went a s a group of 6 for a birthday and it was really fun, the chef does amazing tricks and it makes meal very enjoyable. The food isn't amazing but quite good. Very good value for price
A group of myself and 7 friends went to Sen Nin in Camden for my birthday meal. I have previously been to this restaurant and also to the one in Islington. Sen Nin is always very entertaining with the chef really making the meal, in entertainment as well as food value!
I prefer the Camden branch of this restaurant as I find the staff are much better organised as well as approachable.
This was the perfect place for a celebratory meal as the food was delicious and the laughter was plentiful.
Good food and entertaining cook
Great experience. We all had fun watching the cook making his tricks while preparing our meals. We take advantage of the 50% off offer and we ended up with a very reasonable bill considered we ate very well and a lot.
Excellent food, excellent service
Went on half-price Tuesday which enabled us to have the Imperial Teppanyaki Meal for under £25 per person, which was outstanding value. The service from both waiting staff and the chef who prepared our meal in front of us was fantastic. There was a lot of interaction with the chef during cooking - it's quite a performance! - so not ideal if you're after a quiet, serious conversation, but for a fun, tasty night out it was perfect. We will definitely be returning. All the food was delicious; the tilapia fillet was the highlight for us. We also enjoyed steak and calamari as part of our main course. Portions are an excellent size and dessert was therefore not needed but if you have a larger appetite it rounds off the meal nicely.
Sen Nin is fun
we went to Sen Nin for a birthday party and Teppanyaki with chefs who juggle and joke is usually great fun and Sen Nin was great fun. Food good and very good value with the offer made for a great evening
Good Food, Good Service,
Great place.... The food is top notch and the chefs are theatrical. Staff are customer focused and welcoming.... All in all a fantastic experience. Only downside is pricing is on the high side and set meals do not present value unless discounted like the offers on Toptable.
Very entertaining chef! Food
Very entertaining chef! Food was delicious and lots of it. We had 50% off, not sure I would go without the dicsount.
Go on a Tuesday!
We went on a Tuesday, when you get 50% off the whole bill - it really is outstanding value with the discount.
Between four of us, we had four starters, four Teppanyaki meals, two bottles of wine, two bottles of water and four cocktails, which only came to ~£100 after the discount. Excellent value!
The chef was very entertaining, but the service left a lot to be desired. There were only two waitresses serving the whole restaurant and running the bar, so waiting times for drinks were very long.
The deep fried breaded oysters, the blackened cod and the lamb teppanyaki, and mango mojito were all outstanding!
The staff were very friendly
The staff were very friendly and patient for us - who had never eaten Japanese food. The vegetarian options are excellent and there is plenty for met eaters. We chose and waited ........ then started to look around and laugh! The chef at the open cookers next to the tables are wonderful to watch - it is an act but very amusing if the guests play along with it. Not only do the chefs play around with the knives but they also involve the guests - if you want! It was a very enjoyable night and we stayed for 3 hours although we were not very hungry and had 2 simple courses. It was a pleasure and I will return.
Had a great night staff very friendly, food tasty and the chef was very entertaining. Would be great for a large group or a special occassion, wonderful experience.
Tasty food, prepared right
Tasty food, prepared right in front of us. Excellent beef wraps and dumplings. Good service, but not a great wine list. Perfect for somewhere quick to go after work. Tasty and very enjoyable
Excellent menu with a wide
Excellent menu with a wide variety of food & pricing options. Staff very friendly and the Chef for our table was outstanding. Would definitely visit again.
Made my birthday really special
I went with a group of 13 for my birthday to try something different, and we ended up being late due to traffic - the manager was really understanding and still fit us in with a smile on her face. All my friends realllyyy enjoyed themselves and had such a laugh which made my birthday very special indeed. The chef was really entertaining and sweet, and made it even more special by letting me join in with the entertainment! Its cheaper than some of the other teppanyaki places and i think its quite good value for that. affordable and special.
My first time was with a 12yr
My first time was with a 12yr old and although Sen Nin was full, they very kindly offered us seats at the waiting area and served us starters and drinks until we could be seated at the tables and it just got better from there, the food was, in the words of a very discerning 12yr old, 'really brilliant and delicious' which I totally concurred with - we had soft shell crab, spicy prawns, California rolls and squid to start followed by Lobster and Steak for both of us, totally yummy! The staff were extremely friendly, with the delicious food, made for a brilliant treat for a foodie adult and a foodie 12 yr old, so much so, I returned the following weekend with a 7yr old for another really delicious meal and a totally memorable treat.
What a show
I didn't really know what to expect from this place. The layout of the restaurant works quiet well, but it was rather empty on a Sunday at 5.30pm. That was an advantage and a disadvantage as we got served really quickly, however the ambience was not that great as it didn't feel busy.
Now on to the actual meal.
A chef came out after a while to prepare our main course. He confirmed our orders and then proceeded to show us come utensil tricks which were quite impressive. The food was cooked very well and fast with the use of his quick utensil skills. As he cooked he would tell us what he was putting on to season the food. Then it came to eating the cooked food and it was fantastic.
I would definitely come again to try the other food items.
Fantastic food and enterteiment
Food was outstanding, however for that price i was expecting more quantity - if you tend to eat a lot i would recommend another restaurant as this one is very pricey.
On the other hand you will be able to enjoy a show by the chef in the open kitchen - what a talented man!
Very good experience overall.
Food great and entertainment value good as each table gets their own chef who gets everyone who wants to be involved without being pushy! Service was good and it was a great evening. The only problem is that if you are with a group of more than four people you can't chat easily to your friends as the tables are set in a horse shoe shape around the chef. But don't be deterred this is well worth a visit and kids would love it too!
Fun food factor
Good food, great atmosphere. Slightly pricey but worth it for a special night out. Chefs cooking at your table are great fun, adding an element of theatre to the evening. Fun and delicious.
We went to Sen Nin as a group of 5 on the 50% off Toptable deal. It was fun having the food cooked up in front of us! Good value as well on the Toptable offer. Would recommend!
Great meal & Great entertainment!
We went, for the second time on Saturday in a group of 9 - 4 adults & 5 kids between ages of 3 and 9. The chef was brilliant juggling, entertaining, and making us all laugh. The food was great - its not cheap, but then good food never is! The kids loved the cooking on the table in front of them and ate all their beef/salmon and egg fried rice - we couldnt complain! There was no rush and the restaurant was certainly busy by the time we left - will definitely return again!
We had a nice and funny chef!
We really had a great time at Sen Nin. The chef who cooked right before us was funny and pleasant. The food nice and filling. Truly enjoyed the ambiance and fully recommend.
Booked for 13 people for my birthday. Great food and lots of fun. Opted for the half price set menu and there was lots of food for the money. Can also recommend the fried oysters and the tepanyaki lamb.
The teppenyaki grill was great entertainment, with the chef cooking the food in front of us. The 50% off set menu deal was great value, with miso soup, sushi, grill main course and a dessert. We would definitely go bak.
food is fresh and good tasting and very attentive and friendly staff. great for a group of people too as the tepanyaki waiters are very interactive.
Just very Good!
We went there the second time and the food, service and presentation were as good as the first time. It is simly entertaining with a lovely meal and if you are inclined to, you get to know the people around you. Lovely and skilled cook.
Had dinner here with a group of friends, the restaurant was pretty empty on a Monday night, the service was efficient, teppanyaki chef was great, very fun and made the dining experience worth it.
Beautifully designed restaurant and the toilet was clean (always have to have a clean toilet!).
Food was very very salty, so ensure you tell the chef not to put so much salt/soya sauce on the food!
Overall quite expensive even with the tastecard! Something different to do for your group of friends.
I booked the restaurant for my birthday.We hadba really good time.The restaurant is a bit hidden for those whondo not know the area.
The atmosphere is pleasant and rather intimate as the restaurant is small.YOu will not need to shout to be heard bybyour friends as it happens in large restos.
The chef cooked the food in front of us and he was funny.THat is a big plus.
The service ws not as good as I expected because the waitress was rushing us a bit
This is an excellent value for money as I used the 50 % DISCOUNT.
Overall very good experience except for the service.ideal for b day parties
great value and food at Sen Nin
the toptable offer is exceptional value. service is great and teppanyaki chefs are a huge laugh - recommended
Last minute idea of going out to dinner and found this on TT. The restaurant was fairly quiet for a Sat evening. The chef was very friendly and very skilled, probably the best I've seen for Teppenyaki. He kept us entertained the all time which was really nice. We had the surf & turf for main and the food was suprisingly good. We really enjoyed it.
Extremely high quality and
Extremely high quality and fresh food, exceptionally presented, excellent range of eating options

Tasty food and good fun
I booked Sen Nin in Camden for 5 people my birthday. We had the teppanyaki meal wih 25% off tobtable offer.
The service was friendly, fast and attentive, but not pushy. The chef was fun and really amused us all, especially my parents who aren't from London! The food was much better quality than I had expected, with well flavoured and tender meat. The only slight downside is that it was very empty (there was only one other couple in the whole place), but that moght be because it was a Thursday evening.
Good menu choice, good value. Would visit again. Shame a 10% service charge was added automatically. I only spent £39 and I'd have given them a fiver tip!
Great family fun, fun and
Great family fun, fun and professional chef we had a lovley time
Really enjoyed an entertaining
Really enjoyed an entertaining evening at Sen Nin. The chefs were great, cooking good fresh food and making the customers laugh with great entertainment over the hot plate. Would recommend !
Sen Nin Japanese Teppanyaki
Sen Nin Japanese Teppanyaki & Sushi restaurant - good value for money... Excellent service and presentation/food preparation by the chef...
Anyone who has been to a tempanyaki
Anyone who has been to a tempanyaki restaurant will know it is fun rather than 'intimate' because you sit round the grill with other people . The Restaurant is the Downstairs area of a (former) Pub when we went they had doors open all the way round onto the streets good for heel chairs? Situated in a Camden with what appeared to be an underground car park oppositte. We had the 2 for 1 deal for the Imperial fixed Menu which made it good value for money and the food was excellent. The preparation of the food on the Tempanyaki Grill in front of you by a 'notionally' Japanese chef makes the evening. Make sure you have the fried habchi rice which allows the chefs to really show off! Be careful with drinks they are pricey and if you have Sake.
Really worth going as a treat or date. Quality food prepared in front of you.
Amazing as Always!
Once again the food was fantastic, fresh and yummy! Teppenyaki is amazing and do much fun here and the service is top notch!! Couldn't ask for more! Will be returning again soon!! Thanks
The food is fantastic and
The food is fantastic and the night out is entertainment in itself. Excellent evening and I will definitely be going back.
We steered clear of the teppanyaki table as it was a hot humid evening, but tucked ourselves away on a cosy corner table. We stuck to sushi, and everything we had was very tasty, generously portioned, and good value (for sushi!).
Very fun ! Very good !
We were 6 Norwegians in London for the weekend, and we had booked in advance asking for a "good show". We certainly did get that and on top of this the food, (lobster, seabass and kobe-steak) was totally outstanding and of course cooked to perfection right before your eyes on the teppanyaki grill. We will go back to london, and we will go back to sen nin !
great fun and great fun
Very good evening. He chef was very friendly and entertaining. the food was great as well. Highly recommended. will go back.
Go for dinner!
This is a really good restaurant....we went for a business lunch but it was quite empty...I would expect it's a much better place for dinner and I'll definitely be going back with my Husband. We both had the Teppanyaki, the chef was brilliant and gave a great performance slicing the eggs in mid air, we shared the bass and the salmon and they were both delicious...
Very good dining experience,
Very good dining experience, something different good for couples or as a group , chief performs good show, be prepared to wait for food because of this but makes the evening
We loved the food and fun of Sen Nin. The set menu was good value with the TT deal (expensive without it). We really enjoyed the meal and left feeling very full. The steak was really good quality and cooked perfectly so it just melted in the mouth. The staff were exceedingly friendly and we would love to return again soon.
Go on a Tuesday! you can't
Go on a Tuesday! you can't beat the value and the cocktails where amazing.
