KOYN Japanese Restaurant, London

Restaurants & Bars

KOYN restaurant in Mayfair, housed within the renovated building formerly occupied by the US Embassy and Canadian High Commission and set back within the Grosvenor Square development, has a striking first impression.

The food offering showcases a broad spectrum of Japanese cuisine with a stunning sushi bar at ground floor, and a Robata counter at lower ground providing the theatre of open fire cooking. The lower ground floor is also complimented with a private dining space and is connected to the upper floor by a striking staircase lit with concealed linear lighting to the steps and walls. The bar is nestled in the corner of the ground floor in dark and moody tones of wood and natural stones and lit to reveal the specialist drinks and objects on display.

The lighting provides a cohesive approach to exposing and expressing the interesting materials throughout the restaurant and bar. Always concealed, allowing only the materials and any decorations to be seen as well as, of course, the food to provide visual interest to each table and bar & counter throughout.
