Located in London’s exclusive Mayfair neighbourhood, Sexy Fish is an elegantly-stylish Asian seafood restaurant and bar adorned with beautiful artwork and equally-as-beautiful people. The interior was commissioned and designed exclusively for the restaurant and evokes an air of mid-century glamour that you don’t often find in venues of this kind, while the ground floor private function room houses two of the world’s largest live coral reef tanks.
The real star of the drinks card at Sexy Fish has got to be the whisky selection – it is the largest offering of Japanese whiskies in the world. The dizzying array includes contributions from nineteen different distilleries, the most prestigious being a 1982 grain whisky from Kawasaki. For those whose knowledge of Japanese whiskies is limited, Sexy Fish graciously includes a whisky glossary on their menu, as well as a breakdown of the origin and taste of each distillery’s offerings.
When it comes to cocktails, each house-special has an Asian-inspired name and ingredients, including the Maiko – a muddle of peach sake, lychee, kaffir sherbet and rose – and the Curry Me Home – an aromatic concoction of Scotch and malt whiskies, kumquat, curry and egg white. There’s a good range of champagnes and spirits and the designated drivers are also well-provided-for with a refreshing selection of homemade cold pressed juices and exotic fruity non-alcoholic cocktails.
Food at Sexy Fish includes a raw bar of oysters and fresh sushi, as well as seafood salads, Wagyu beef steaks, fresh market fish and lobster tempura. The selection of skewers (meat, octopus or vegetable) are the perfect accompaniment to the vast drinks menu.
