Chef Jason Atherton called the food at The Araki “mind blowing” and said that it was as good as any restaurant in Japan. The Araki was named the best Japanese restaurant in London by Tatler magazine in their 2015 restaurant guide. In September 2015, The Araki was awarded two stars in the 2016 Michelin Guide for the UK and Ireland. It was one of two Japanese restaurants in London to be elevated to the two-star level that year, the other being Umu, which is located a short distance away from The Araki. The Araki was awarded a third star in the 2018 guide, announced in October 2017.
