    We had the Omakase menu. Service was exceptional and food was excellent. All the dishes were beautifully presented. It felt very authentic (I have been to Japan and experience eating at Engawa was comparable).

    We went with a pram and they gave us the counter seats . Booked the lunch time 2 tiers bento box and was v impressed with the quality and they were delicious . My favorite was the toro , really fresh and tasty We also ordered the wagyu sirloin and was melt in the mouth . It”s a small restaurant but pleasant on a Friday afternoon.

    Lovely atmosphere and the service was top notch! The presentation of the food was also wonderful. Only thing that was disappointing was the quality of the tuna we ordered. It was definitely not justified for the price and I even had a bone in there. The portions are super small and you will enjoy if you are not expecting to be filled up.

    I had booked a special price on the internet, and felt a bit of a second-class citizen as a result. Nevertheless, the food was good, the ambience was fine, the service was courteous if not warm. Prices for additional items were high (e.g., £5 for soft drinks). At full price, I would not have felt it was good value for money. At half price (£25+added tip) I thought it was ok…

    This is my third or fourth time at Engawa, it never disappoints. The food and service were excellent, this is my favourite high-end Japanese restaurant in London. It is a bit on the expensive side but the quality of the dinning experience makes up for that. I recommend the Omakase 3 or 5 course - sensational stuff.

    It wasn’t as what we expected. It’s not your traditional Omakase where the chef carefully curates each and every piece of sushi for you. It’s set in a box (11 sashimi/ appetizers). For the main course we chose the sushi set that also came in a box. There are other choices for the mains but I couldn’t speak for those as we didn’t get to try them. For 85 pounds per person, I don’t think it’s worth it. The only fish that was very special I should say was the otoro. That one came in small bites too. Our server who is Japanese was very nice and patient with our questions. The chefs by the bar were not friendly at all. One chef who was in charged of the sushi was banging sushi boxes like he was already tired. And yes we were in front of him. How i wish we chose another restaurant (a more traditional) for Omakase. If you’ll go, just order ala carte. Again, Omakase wasn’t worth it.

    Everything about this restaurant was what we wanted - the food was outstanding, with opportunities to try things you rarely see on menus, and the service was excellent. Just as we were starting to speculate about something unknown, our waiter would appear and offer some advice. Attentive without being intrusive - very professional but also relaxed. Loved the theatre aspect of the open kitchen too. Not cheap - but worth every penny and highly recommended.

    Everything except the noisy "music" in techno style was ok. The owners should decide wether they invite to disco bar or restaurant. Noise was 87 to 95dB what is much to loud for consumption of fancy food and chatting.

    Outstanding. Every single time. I have eaten at Engawa for dinner probably 15+ times in the last year - the quality of the produce, sushi and inventiveness of the dishes is superb. The front of house team are amazing and the sake / wine list is terrific. Just brilliant. Thank you Engawa - just keep doing what you're doing so well!
