Lucky Cat is inspired by Tokyo’s 1930s kissas and Shanghai’s drinking dens. These nocturnal music clubs became the playground of the urban youth seeking all things extravagant, new and cutting edge. Asian inspired small plates, Robata grilled dishes, sushi and sashimi are crafted in the open kitchen and signature raw carve bar. Each dish is designed to be shared.
A bit of background
Gordon Ramsay is a world-famous Michelin chef from the UK, and one of the largest household names in the industry. He launched his restaurant ‘Lucky Cat’ on June 24th 2019 and it is now a ‘must be’ spot in Mayfair for A-listers in London.
The food at Lucky Cat takes a twist on the traditional Asian cuisine, while being refined in its presentation and taste. If you are a lover of Asian food, there is certainly something for you. From Sushi, to fish, the finest cut meat, their menu is impressive and expensive. An example of this would be the egg fried rice, which wears a price tag of £20 per portion! We aimed to try different dishes on the menu, to give you an all-round feel of what is being offered at Lucky Cat. To start, we opted for smoked brisket bao, served with yuzu mustard and pickled cucumbers as well as the salmon avocado roll. The brisket was succulent and tender however we felt that the mustard was slightly overpowering for the meat. The salmon roll was just as you would expect with a great portion size and fresh taste.
For our main dishes we opted for the tempura prawn and shiso; whole grilled sea bream and the rare breed beef sirloin. All three dishes were incredibly different but equally as mouth-watering. The fish fell off the bone, the beef melted in our mouths and the tempura was just the right amount of crisp without being greasy.
We agree, that our stand-out dish was the whole sea bream for us both. It seemed to have been grilled over a BBQ and seasoned to perfection. Paired with the (expensive) egg-fried rice, it was the perfect combination.
We walked up the stairs and were greeted by the doorman. The loud music, darkness, and floodlights made it looked phenomenal. Inside, there was a big neon sign with the Lucky Cat logo, which was great for some pictures. The staff were friendly and seated us straight away. The layout of the restaurant was perfect for families, couples, and groups. We were very comfortable in our large velvet chairs; the Asian inspired décor really lit the room well, accompanied with authentic luxurious ornaments.
Overall, we had a fantastic time at Lucky Cat. We would recommend this as a great place for business lunches and a dinner for your Principal’s family.
