Inamo is worth a visit purely for the novelty aspect of ordering the food. Each table has a touch screen where you can scroll through the food and drinks menus. There is a picture and description for each dish, and when you’re ready to order you simply tap on your selection. The order is sent to the kitchen, and moments later your food appears, voila! Service has never been so much fun.

This wondrous table screen also has a ‘chef cam’ option, whereby you can inspect the goings on in the kitchen, not that it is possible to actually see that much, but it’s fun nonetheless. There are also handy screens to help you continue your journey, where you can look at the tube map, local buses, or order a cab.

The table design can be changed, courtesy of another button and a projector situated above. Inamo are in fact currently inviting enthusiasts to enter their own designs via the Flikr website.

Playtime aside, the menu is a mish-mash of Japanese, Thai and Chinese dishes. Sashimi, Thai curries, black faced lamb and wagyu beef all feature here amongst many others. Inamo has sought to cater to a more refined palate than many of its neighbours, think truffle marble beef and wild boar rolls as opposed to spring rolls and duck with pancakes.

The selection of teas is impressive, and desserts are simply mouth-watering. Try the Thai basil panacotta with coconut foam, kiwi and pineapple, which due to its fruit content makes you feel slightly less naughty, or the macaroon and white chocolate mousse with lemongrass and coconut sorbet. As much thought has gone into the creation of these concoctions as with the ordering system.

The dimly lit, seductive interiors suggest the perfect setting for the intimacy of a date, however the interactive tables are a little anti-social, particularly if like me you are as mesmerised as a child by pressing buttons and looking at pictures of food. A fun, out of the ordinary experience.

I went to Inamo with my boyfriend in December and I couldn't be any happier! I hadn't been there before, but it was exactly as I expected: modern environment, a bit dark, exquisite food...and the technology bit is just awesome! Prices are really reasonable too... Do go at least once, and you will enjoy it :)
