inamo Camden is the latest opening from the inamo Group, who add another fusion restaurant to their Soho and Covent Garden branches. Situated directly opposite Mornington Crescent station, the restaurant is easy to find. The building itself is imposing with a sleek and dimly lit exterior, reflected by the décor inside.
The meal started on the roof terrace with a sushi platter. Eating on the terrace doesn’t sound like a great idea for a January evening; however, the heating was surprisingly effective so we barely felt the chill! Although all the sushi was tasty, the standout was easily the dragon roll with tempura shrimp, avocado and mayonnaise.
We were then taken inside to try out one of inamo’s main attractions – the interactive tables. These were a lot a fun. We played around with drawing our faces (resulting in some interesting works of art…), the multiplayer games and even watching the chefs in action in the kitchen using the chef cam. Technology is central to the inamo experience, with iPads also provided on each table to order through.
After our table entertainment, more dishes arrived in the form of a huge selection from the inamo menu. This included ebi tempura, Char Sui buns, Korean chicken wings, yuzu miso aubergine, and miso salmon. The standouts here were the Korean chicken wings and miso salmon. Both dishes had a delicate balance of flavours, with the right level of kick to the chicken wings. The other dishes were also delicious, although Chinese classics like the Char Sui buns and duck with pancakes were slightly bland.
Overall, inamo Camden is definitely worth a visit, especially if you’re a fan of Asian food. The food itself doesn’t disappoint, and the technological novelties add an extra, fun dimension.
