Vibrant and innovative dishes, inspired by Koj’s heritage and experience in Japan.
As soon as you enter, the sights, sounds and smells from our open kitchen are a unique part of the experience at Koj. A small, informal dining room creates the atmosphere for socialising over Japanese grazing dishes and drinks.
We are pioneering a #NOsushi Japanese dining experience in the UK, opening up a new cuisine to anyone put off by raw fish but delighting Japanophiles who know that there is so much more to this cuisine.
Upstairs in Bandana Monkey bar, guests can enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, retire for a digestif, or pop in for a quick bite before the theatre or after work. As well as an enviable list of Japanese craft beers, sake, shochu and whisky, we have created our own list of Japanese-inspired cocktails, including one using our own Japanese gin, Kojin.

I used to go to Japan on business, before I became a chef. After a day of meetings, I liked to escape my hotel and find somewhere to unwind amid the busy atmosphere of locals socialising over food and drinks.
I liked being able to order dishes without the constraint of 'starter, main, dessert'. Even here in the UK, I often order two starters instead of a main, to try more things. It works even better as a group, if you are happy to share!
Bandana Monkey bar is our cocktail bar, hidden away upstairs, where guests can enjoy a different vibe over a pre-dinner cocktail, retire for a digestif, or simply pop in for a quick bite before the theatre or after work. As well as an enviable list of Japanese craft beers, sake, shochu and whisky, we have created our own list of Japanese-inspired cocktails.
