According to their website it started fourteen years ago and it was so successful that the Aqua Restaurant Group has over 25 venues in Hong Kong, London and Beijing.There are going to branches in New York, Dubai and Paris soon!!!!
aqua spirit is conveniently located round the corner from Oxford circus station so we went there after some serious shopping at Oxford Street.
We got a lovely table facing the bar where all the magic happens.
The drinks menu was exciting with drinks inspired by Japan, the one that we had was the Fuji Crusta containing ciroc vodka, pear liquor, pear puree and lime.
It was definitely a good choice because it was sweet and fragrant and the glass was stylish with a black and white sesame sugar rim.
We also tried the cranberry mocktail which was sharp and refreshing.
Started with edamame which was sprinkled with my favourite Maldon Salt.
Then we had ebi tempura which was succulent and springy prawns in a perfectly light and crispy tempura batter complimented by a chili mayonnaise.
Then was had these sweet tebaski yaki chicken wings stuffed with coriander and ginger miso.
Last but not least was my favourite maki rolls filled with creamy avocado chunks and fresh salmon topped with salmon roe pearls that gives it a burst of saltiness.
Stayed tune for more Aqua related posts :) Hopefully NY and PARIS!!!!!!!
