If you are looking for a futuristic dining experience in London, a stop by Inamo is a must. The Asian fusion eatery isthe city's first-ever interactive restaurant.
The restaurant is marketed as a place where ''the control of the dining experience is placed firmly in your hands.'' This is accomplished via interactive tables, on which a food and drinks menu is projected.
Diners can set the mood with a theme and place their orders directly on the table - they can even order a cab, purchase theater tickets or catch a behind-the-scenes look at the chef in the kitchen.
Athough it's a Jetson-esque dining experience, the restaurant has been well-received by critics who have raved about dishes like pork fuji apple steamed dumplings, crispy spiced fried pork belly, cinnamon chicken and its fruity cocktails.
If you get stumped by the technology, the waiting staff is eager to lend a helping hand. Inamo has two locations: Soho and Regent Street. For reservations, please visit the restaurant's website.
In Rotterdam, a similar Pan-Asian interactive restaurant opened back in 2011. Called Izakaya, it uses the same futuristic tables and technology. Watch the video below to see it in action.
Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
