The food was delicious and creative. We would have enjoyed more time between courses to properly enjoy the meal and would have liked slightly more attentive service.
Good food, with great sushi and sashimi and wagyu. Very small space, so be prepared to make space for the waiters move around. If they recommend a special, be sure you can afford it 😀 They aren't cheap and are not on the menu.
Amazing tasting, authentic food. Incredibly accommodating and friendly staff. We sat at the counter and it was fascinating watching the food be prepared with such expertise.
It is expensive but worth every penny.
Great food, great atmosphere. Very authentic. What a great place!
Overall and excellent Japanese restaurant, in a nice location, with very polite staff and a cosy ambience.
The limited amounts of seats and quiet environment makes it excellent for a date.
The food is very well presented and the quality is high. However, I believe it could benefit from higher consistency. Some of the dishes were spectacular - the rice was perfect and the fried tofu brought my girlfriend back to her childhood memories in Tokyo. Others were a little bit disappointing - the eel was cold and not particularly interesting and the fatty tuna a tad chewy. Yet the main criticism I'd have is the tea, as it was old and more appropriate for a "cheaper restaurant"; the Japanese sencha should have been way better (and I would have been happy to pay more for that).
Overall, it's a good high end Japanese restaurant and I'd happily recommend going, but I wouldn't call it my favourite in London.
Food tasted really great and look amazing but was expected something a little more special from Omakase menu. Wagyu beef was really nice and tasty. Staffs were very attentive however we felt rushed as the plates were taken away as soon as I picked up my last piece of sushi even though the restaurant wasn’t full. Overall, great experience.
It small and tight but amazing. definietly in Londons top 10 Japaneese.
Spent a good money there and was rushed to finish each course. Felt like I was eating at a market. Disgusting toilet. Some of the food were amazing but some, like rice bowl with Kobe beef and an identifiable miso soup were horrific.
We had a superb dining experience at Engawa.. which I booked for my husband’s birthday. The staff are really friendly and accommodating.. The chef even greeted us.. The food was fantastic.. really met our expectations.. especially the famous wagyu beef. It was presented nicely and we ate it all..The staff even explained what we are having..Some review said it’s pricey but it’s worth every bite.. I ordered the wagyu beef ramen and dessert (£25) while my husband had the 3 course meal with wagyu steak (£65). They also served us with an udon soup to start with which wasn’t included in our orders.. We tried the sake..and their bottomless tea, too! (In total we paid £120).The manager came out before we end our meal and gave us a complimentary drink (Mio) really nice and refreshing.. and greeted my husband a happy birthday then here comes this tiny cake with a candle.. It really made his birthday memorable..
Thank you so much, Engawa!
My fav authentic Japanese spot in London. Good value, attentive service, absolutely amazing ingredients. Worth coming back.
My partner and I visited Engawa Restaurant on 16/2/19, and had a really wonderful evening. Our waiter was courteous, enthusiastic and clearly very knowledgable about the food and drink pairings, and the food was impeccable - I highly recommend the 5 course set menu!
Well presented good quality food. However not worth the asking price. Have eaten better Sushi in London at half the cost.
Everything was great although I wish you could order separate lunch items in addition to the set menu. I would order the corn/kabocha squash croquettes by the bucketful....it’s delicious. My one criticism is that each course comes within seconds of each other. It would be nice if they paced the courses so that you could actually enjoy your meal without feeling you’re eating nonstop or being rushed. Also, the waitstaff should refrain from clearing empty plates if some people in the party are still eating. I find it bad form for the conversation or your dining experience to constantly be interrupted by hands/arms reaching across the table to clear empty plates. Just wait until everyone is finished eating and do it all at once. Despite that, I would recommend the restaurant without hesitation.
The food was incredible, and there is a lot of food for the £65 set menu, and really delicious. The wagyu steak was beautiful, and a nice setting. As others have said, it was a bit rushed towards the end of the evening, but we had a late table (9.15) so we were nearly the last people in the restaurant... If I went again i'd get an earlier table to avoid that situation.
Amazing restaurant with authentic Japanese flavours and ingredients. The service was swift and efficient. The staff was very friendly and they even took time to ask us our opinion on each of the items we ate. The restaurant has clean interiors and its small size provides an intimate dining experience.
Das Engawa hat eine Exzellente Karte. Das Ambiente und die Servicekräfte waren super! Die offene Küche empfand ich als toll und trotz der arbeitenden Köche kam keine Unruhe ins Restaurant.
Ein super Abend!
Had the 5 course Omakase, great experience overall and amazing food.
Great food, good service and calm, organised kitchen. Please keep it up!
Really nice experience but they brought us (and made us pay) a non requested second glass of Japanese whisky.
That was unfare because we thought it was an offered glass.
Excellent dinner! I highly recommend.
A small restaurant but what a wonderful surprise. The meal was excellent!
We had high expectations for this place as we are in love with Japan and its food.
However it was severely overpriced for what it was, the smallest portions of food I have experienced for a very long time, and people were uncomfortably jammed into their seats.
Although we paid nearly £250 for dinner for two, we ended up going to Chinatown afterwards for some crispy duck, it was maybe the most disappointing meal I have ever had.
the restaurant is tiny and very expensive - we were having a pre-theatre dinner and it was £150 without any drinks, which was not worth it! I should have done more research...Plus the size of the restaurant means someone is banging into the back of your chair very frequently which is annoying when you are trying to enjoy clearly premium food.
Amazing place to eat, a must for any steak or sushi lovers
Diablical service and attitude. The staff cleared the tables before everyone finished eating making everything very rushed. Drinks and water arrived after the first course was already set on the table. We came to Celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday and on booking and telephone confirmation a little birthday note and candle surprise with the dessert course was organised. Not only did they forget despite the double confirmation, when queried on the night the manager simply shrugged his shoulders and said ‘oh it was missed’. No apology or attempt to correct this was made. A glass of champagne was eventually offered but I did not take it as he completely missed the point. Food was decent as expected with this price tag but after this service there is no chance the experience would be good. I highly recommend against this place.
The service location and ambience is good but the food is ok.
Very nice service and top food
Overall experience is good.
Had a great time, the sushi was amazing. I would say was worth the money. Counter seat gave an authentic Japanese experience. Would definitely go again and recommend.
I like the bento box
We appreciate the great care taken to provide a very special Christmas menu and experience for all of our family.
As a Japanese, the food was very authentic and enjoyed the great presentation. A bit pricey side but for an occasion I would definitely repeat again and again.
Very impolite welcome - was told to liberate my place in 1 hour! The kitchen was very fast, I was already out in 18 minutes (starter and Entree).
nice food and outstanding services
Our waiter was very rude
The food here is absolutely great! Love the Sashimi and the steak. The location in the Ham Yard is central and the environment is fabulous. The only thing I think could be improved is the service(but the service is also outstanding, I might just being picky), we were almost finished with our bottle of sparkling water as well as our meal, and I just didn’t like sparkling water that’s why I gave mine to my boyfriend, but the waiter came over and asked
Delicious food especially the beef, beautifully presented and served and we had a great time but the restaurant is very small so if you are a large group then be aware.
It's good overall, but the chefs are stressed and I wasn't comfortable during lunch time.
Couldn’t have asked for more, the food is amazing!
