Visited this place on a Friday night. It's a great looking bar and restaurant and the rooftop is pretty cool. Whilst the a la carte menu looks on the expensive side we had an offer (3 courses and a cocktail for £29.) The food was lovely as were the drinks.

If you love sushi and you have a comfortable cash flow this place is definitely worth a visit. Lovely layout and atmosphere as well as knowledgeable and attentive staff. Menu offers small plates as well as sharing platters. Food was delicious but as expected PRICY. Highly recommended for those high end sushi lovers!

First class welcoming treatment from the front door to restaurant. Reception staff were also amazing and very helpful with me and my wife's needs. Food was 5 star quality and would recommend to those who love spanish or japanese cuisine. This is me and my wife's second time at aqua and there will definitely be more visit's to come. Thankyou

The food is great and the atmosphere is generally alive and buzzing however quiet enough that you can build your conversation whilst indulging in sushi or a beef hot pot elegantly stirred up on your table! The rooftop bar is certainly... More

Upon arrival, me and my partner were greeted by the very friendly security and secondly with a warm welcome from the very beautiful hostesses. We were then taken to our table where we're treated like absolute royalty by a manager named Massimiliano.

It used to be a cool place where you could eat decent sushi but also feel a great atmosphere. People used to look coo also. not any of this anymore. Food was awful as well and not cheap

Description
Set high above the bustle of Regent Street on the fifth floor of the famous former Dickins & Jones building, aqua london is one of the capital's most unique and exciting drinking and dining destinations with its two restaurants, cocktail bar and stunning roof terraces.

Aqua kyoto is a unique Japanese restaurant showcasing chef Paul Greening's innovative cuisine. An extensive menu of beautifully-presented sushi and sashimi is complemented by creative hot dishes combining the highest quality British produce with Paul's contemporary technique. A central sushi bar and open sumibiyaki charcoal grill combine with sleek black and red decor to create a sense of theatre in keeping with aqua kyoto's location in the heart of the West End.

Pass the Pamplona bull that seems to charge at you along the sultrily-lit corridor and find yourself in aqua nueva, offering Spanish dining at its finest. Here chef Alberto Hernandez presents a modern take on traditional northern Spanish cuisine, reinterpreting classic dishes in exciting new ways. Meanwhile at London's first dedicated Cava Bar guests can order from a menu of delicious tapas while enjoying a glass of cava from an extensive list.

At the heart of aqua london is aqua spirit and its charcoal-ringed bar representing Zen purity. Perennially popular as a destination for beginning, ending or spending an evening, at aqua spirit master mixologists serve up some of the finest cocktails in London. Aqua spirit boasts two hidden gems - outdoor terraces with stunning views over London's rooftops, perfect places to relax and refresh.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
