When I first learned about INAMO, a restaurant chain featuring touch screen tables, I knew it would appeal to my gamer boys.
We were invited to check out Inamo Camden, their newest branch. The restaurant is just a short stroll from Camden Town, right opposite Mornington Crescent tube station.
It’s a swanky looking spot, with bench seating outdoors and a sleek, Manhattan meets Tokyo vibe to the decor.
We were ushered to our table where the boys’ faces lit up instantly.
‘You can play with the tables? Cool!’
Throughout our meal, Ezra and Jed were like, ‘I love it here!’ and ‘This place is sick!’
Our waiter showed us how to choose food and order off the menu from the iPad on our table. There’s a huge selection so it takes a little while, but the ordering process is quick and breezy. If you have any issues, you can dial a waiter right from your tablet.
Using mouse style gadgets on the table, you can find games, menus… there’s even a ‘chef cam’ feed so you can watch your food being prepared!
While the babes got playing, we went through a smorgasbord (seriously) of food options. The menu is pan-Asian with dishes built to share. Our order included Chicken and Vegetable Gyoza (dumplings), Singapore Noodles, Sichuan chicken and vegetarian Thai Red Curry with butternut squash and okra.
Abiye found the veg curry too sweet but I loved it and saved leftovers for lunch the next day. The rest of our meal was a hit. We especially enjoyed the Sichuan chicken and the dumplings. Everything went down beautifully with my lychee martini.
The kids’ portions are a decent size. Ezra and Jed wolfed down their Chicken Donburi with rice.
The children were too full for pudding (huh?!) so I had most of their Chocolate Dipping Dessert. Strawberries, brownie cake pops and chocolate popping candy. Yes please!
If you’re after somewhere different to take your munchkins for a bite, Inamo is definitely worth a look. It’s a gimmicky concept but frankly, it blew my kids’ minds.
Plus, the food is tasty and there’s so much variety. My family aren’t that into fish, but next time I’ll try their sushi platters. They also do Kids Sushi Masterclasses where children can make 2 maki rolls and take home 10 pieces to share.
Before we left, the babes challenged me to several rounds of Ping. It might take a few more visits before I can beat them!
