Amaru (a word with meaning in Peruvian, 'fertility' and in Japanese, 'abundance') will be styled after a Japanese 'izakaya' eatery, and co-owner Bal Thind (original investor in Hakkasan, amongst others) hopes to establish a high-quality but affordable takeaway, centred on signature dishes such as prawn ceviche with coconut and mango and sesame crusted tuna with avocado and truffle.
Besides these, sushi, sashimi and a great selection of desserts are on offer (green tea tiramisu sounds enticing). So if you're looking for great restaurants in London to try something different, venture no further than Amaru's stylish new home.
