Engawa Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Exceptional food and really worth a visit. One minor negative is that Engawa isn't great for those with specific dietary requirements. I ordered the famous bento box but asked for no shellfish. Though the waiter said it was fine, there were still 4 shellfish dishes in the box. I raised this with another waiter, but they said it was impossible to replace with others from the sushi collection. For the price this was a shame but it was still an amazing restaurant overall.
I came here for an anniversary meal. We'd been to Japan in June and were craving authentic Wagyu. We weren't disappointed. We each chose the £65 Omakase menu. Attention to detail was fantastic. Everything was presented beautifully. Really loved my yuzu cocktail too. I would definitely recommend!
Fabulous authentic Japanese restaurant, with excellent quality. (I am Japanese from Tokyo, writing this review.)
Course meal is just brilliant with starter / various sashimi and vegetables dishes / wagyu steak as well as a la carte. Best seats are at the counter, where you can see all chefs preparing with such calmness and tranquility. It is managed by a Japanese company from Tokyo and the atomosphere is cozy and friendly despite its high-end quality feel.
When I went for my friend's birthday treat, staff noticed it was his birthday and without me asking them, the chef/staff decorated the dessert we ordered with 'happy birthday' message with candles.
Far better than Nobu and the best in London.
Always one of our favourite eateries to visit in London. Amazing Japanese food, creative menu and just the best Wagyu. Can't wait till our next london visit, to me this tops most the other fancy Japanese restaurants in London by a long way, it is small and cozy!
We went for an anniversary lunch on a Friday afternoon, arriving around 12:15. Both of us opted for the set menu (£65), with wagu beef main.
The starter - server on a huge block of ics, was spectacular; the bento box had endless compartments and each was a great taste. And the beef, served on a hot stone, was first-class. Not huge, but enough, and perfectly done.
Dessert was a deconstructed apple pie with fruit and a warm, chocolate-green tea sauce which was to die for.
Ambience was quite at the start, though the place filled around 1pm, with what seemed like locals (many were of Japanese origin) comping for lunch. Then it emptied again after lunch.
We took our time and at one point the waiter comments, positively: "why rush, you have all afternoon" ... which was kind and put us at our ease.
All-i-all an excellent place to savour a really well put together and extensive lunch.
Having heard so much about this restaurant, decided to try it for myself.
It was a lunch for one as I was in town to attend a meeting. Sat at the counter and watched the food being prepared. Prompt and unrushed service.
Food was delicious - I ordered the 14 piece bento box.
Bentara used to be a wonderful restaurant but the food has been disappointing lately. And on this occasion, the service was poor and the wine cellar unable to provide our first two choices. Roti Chennai was wonderful, as usual but the satay was dry. My salmon was properly cooked but sauce was flavorless, which is quite a change from how it used to be.
