Inamo, an innovative pan-Asian restaurant and bar that features virtual menus navigated via table top projections, as well as sophisticated audio-visual ambience control, will open this September on Wardour Street in London’s Soho.
At the core of the Inamo concept is an interactive ordering system. Diners order from an illustrated food & drink menu, projected in front of them onto a table surface with a touch sensitive panel.
Each table in the ground floor, 62 cover restaurant, has its own projector, housed in a differently designed cocoon. Customers can choose from a range of animated appearance settings creating a virtual tablecloth.
Alongside navigating through food and drink options, diners are able to view the Inamo chefs working in real time and browse for information about the local Soho neighbourhood and on other practical services, including taxi booking facilities.
The basement bar, which holds 65 people, allows guests to enjoy Inamo’s food, along with an extensive cocktail list, in a more lively environment.
Anthony Sousa Tam brings to Inamo experience gained at some of London’s finest restaurants. This pedigree has enabled Tam to develop an expertise in Asian fusion cooking that cites influences and inspiration from Japan, Thailand and China with over 30 dishes to choose from.
