All the dishes preceding our main were so outstanding that even though this was no slouch, we felt it lacked the je ne sais quoi of the starters.

Whilst the kebab spice rub on the pork was flagrantly fragrant, the meat itself was a tad tough. As for the miso tonkotsu broth, it was serviceable if unmemorable, very clearly at odds with the kebab spice and thicker-than-chashu cuts of pork.

Taste: 3/5
