Very cosy, great atmosphere for a date and excellent service. The food was perhaps a tiny bit less than I was expecting

What a treat, the best Gyoza in London by far. If you can get in, (limited seating) you won’t be disappointed. #gyozadreams

Tasty food, good value! Nice little spot hidden away in Mayfair, great for a catch-up with friends as it's not too hectic/noisy. Everything we tried was great; crispy prawns; foie gras gyozas, beansprout salad etc. We spent c. £25 each and were stuffed!

It was my 4th or 5th time in Titu, which means that I really like the place. However, my last experience there was not the best for various reasons:
- Music: what happened there? Do we seriously need to have a lounge-disco playlist blasting out? What's the deal with that?
- Salt, salt salt: the 4 of us agreed on the food being way too salty.
- Staff kept filling our glasses to make sure that we would order more drinks. Not that we didn't need it with the salty food ;-)
- Tuna Jalapeno has shrunk dramatically since the last visit. It used to be my favourite dish.

If it was my first time there I'm not sure that I would have come back.

Unique, Japanese inspired small plates great for sharing. Every dish was a delight although the veal ribs and whole roasted whole roasted Turbot were amazing. Limited wine selection but very well-made cocktails. Very tiny space so be prepared to be friendly with your dining neighbors although sound level allows for private conversation. Cute decor and wonderful service...a gem!

Honestly honestly honestly, the best Japanese restaurant i’ve tried it in London. Quality of food, quick and pleasant staff. If i’m coming next time to London i have to go there again because everything won’t let you down. The only one thing that i’m regret the place was quite small and wish they can move to another or bigger place.

Please print the Sake Bottle prices in the menu. We ordered 3 bottles only to find out on the bill that they cost a whopping £66 each!! More than a fine champagne!!
It diminished the experience.
Also new waitressing staff don’t seem as engaged as the previous team.

Titu was a cute, intimate restaurant with great tasting food and service. It is a very small restaurant, but that’s what makes it so intimate and allows the staff to provide great service. The food was super tasty. I will be going back again.

I wanted to like Titu more than I did from reading the other reviews posted. Nothing stood out as terrible but I think my expectations were perhaps too high. Gyoza were interesting but the flavours were bland. Ribs were ok but not £20 for 5 good. The place itself is quaint and the staff are nice but I’m not sure how it would be if the place were full. The recommended 4-5 dishes each would be way too much unless you were starved, more like 3 each.

I LOVE this place. Selfishly I just don’t want it to get too popular that I can’t get a table. It’s a tiny, gorgeous place, with delicious flavors and great service. For me, that’s gold.

The veal ribs, salmon and shiitake rice balls were delicious. I couldn’t tell the difference between the beef and and chicken gyoza. We weren’t really paying attention so maybe that’s our fault but one would think it would be obvious. The service is great because the place is tiny and the smokey old fashioned is a well presented. I would definitely return.

Wow, what amazing flavours at this restaurant. We visited after reading a review in one of the weekend papers and were absolutely thrilled. It would be hard to pick a favourite dish, but if I was forced, it would be the Tuna Taco. But everything we chose was so delicious. Titu is a small restaurant so if you really want to try it, do book first. The service is utterly charming and I can't wait to return. Sadly living in the West Country, it won't be as soon as I'd ideally like. Long may it continue.

Unfortunately I was poorly and didn't make it, but my husband and friend who did go along absolutely raved about it. Yes, tiny space, yes a squeeze, yes the wine by the glass is priced close to Mayfair levels, but the food is outstanding! Superb soft shell crab salad and of course delicious dumplings. Highly recommended by them and I am determined to visit as soon as possible!

Delicious- we had a selection of salads, small plates, gyozas and the truffle chips. Everything had a nice balance of flavours and textures. I’ve never had gyoza prepared that way before with a crunchy tuile like netting. I will definitely be back again and again. It is a very small restaurant with max 15 covers. Make a reso as to not disappoint.
