[rīkā /muːn/] noun
An amalgamation of Rika – meaning ‘Loved’ in Persian and ‘Pear Blossom’ in Japanese – and Moon – the Persian-to-English translation of founder Mahsa’s given name. Rika is also the name of Mahsa’s beloved dog, heading up the Front of House team with his charm and bubbly personality.

You would expect (I expected) a restaurant as beautifully, tastefully decorated and lit to be all form with no substance. I tried last night and was proved completely wrong. The menu is varied and interesting. The delivery is flawless. We’ll be back.
Best Japanese food I’ve had outside of Japan. Surprised to find a great Japanese fusion cuisine in Notthing hill 🙂 Lovely atmosphere, amazing service, the staff are so friendly and polite, I definately recommend this place.
Food was exceptional. Such welcoming and conscientious staff. Wonderful and needed addition to the neighbourhood. Bravo!
Outstanding good sushi with lamb and beef that melt in your mouth. Cocktails were exceptionally delicious, made by super friendly, knowledgeable staff who really care that you get the best experience. Splendid decor. A gem in west London (also the toilet is a disco. So much fun!)
