2 Ham Yard, London W1D 7DT

Engawa is one of London’s most authentic and traditional Japanese restaurants, specialising in the delicacy of Kobe beef alongside a stunning selection of fresh sushi and sashimi.

One of just a handful of Japanese restaurants in London to offer Kobe – the most exclusive beef in the world often called the ‘caviar of meat’ – we are the only UK restaurant to import the entire Kobe cow and as such can offer a wide range of cuts including sirloin, rump, fillet, rib-eye and oyster blade steaks as well as a creative selection of sushi, sashimi and sake.

Our intimate dining room, designed by Satomi Hatanaka, seats 29 for lunch and dinner as well as stools at the pass offering a fascinating insight into the workings of an authentic Japanese kitchen in central London. A number of striking design features include a stunning piece of resin artwork positioned above the open kitchen and an eye-catching light arrangement decorated with hand-stencilled Kanji writing.
