Celebrate the Festive Season at Junsei

If you’re looking for the perfect dining spot over the festive period, then look no further than Marylebone’s favourite yakitori restaurant, Junsei. Whether it’s a limited-edition festive Sando, an extra special fried chicken party bucket or a special NYE omakase tasting menu experience like no other, Junsei is guaranteed to ignite your Christmas spirit this December. And, with the arrival of Junsei’s new delivery arm – Tamashi by Junsei – some of the treats are available for home delivery within a 2-mile radius of the restaurant, from Belgravia to Belsize Park.


Every Christmas, an estimated 3.5 million Japanese families treat themselves to KFC on Christmas Day, and in homage to this tradition, Tamashi by Junsei will be launching its very own limited edition “TFC” Fried Chicken Party Bucket for the festive season. Whether you’re looking for a dish to make you feel at home, or keen to expand your festive culinary experiences, the TFC bucket is available throughout December via Deliveroo. Cooked over Binchotan charcoal, a white variety made from Japanese oak, this sumptuous fried chicken is the ultimate feast to share with friends and family. 

Available from 1st December via Tamashi by Junsei on Deliveroo. Priced at £11.00.


Offering a festive spin on the hugely popular Japanese sandwich, Junsei will be launching a Tempura Sea Bream Sando, with kimizu sauce, shokupan bread and watercress. Featuring bread from  Happy Sky Bakery, a local Japanese bakery in Acton, this year’s festive sando combines beautiful unami flavours with the sweetness of the milk bread. Enjoy at Junsei or order from Tamashi by Junsei via Deliveroo to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

Available from 1st December in the restaurant and via Tamashi by Junsei on Deliveroo. Priced at £12.50.


Omakase, meaning “I’ll leave it up to you”, is the Japanese tradition of letting the chef take control of the entire meal – for a New Year’s Eve like no other, sit back and enjoy an exciting 6-course menu. Toast to 2023 with a glass of fizz as you watch the chefs in action, taking diners on a voyage of gastronomic discovery as they meticulously prepare and cook dishes including A5 Wagyu over flaming charcoal. Cocktail, wine and sake pairings will be available for the full Junsei experience. 

Available on 31st December. Priced at £60 for the first seating and £90 for the second seating

On December 24th, Christmas Eve, Junsei will be offering a £60 set menu only. The restaurant will be closed on 25th and 26th December and 1st and 2nd January.
