Doubt you could get a better experience in Tokyo. Was a world class experience
amazing food. great service.
Nice food - tempura whiting was particularly tasty, serving sizes are small - more like tapas, so need to order 3-4 things pp, good for gluten free, good service
This restaurant is wonderful! The service could not have been better and its not too noisy especially being a small restaurant. All of our dishes were fantastic and i believe the prices are extremely reasonable. Staff were very attentive accommodating. It was the perfect birthday dinner for myself and my family!
Really good restaurant
Very good food- a wide collection of small share plates offers diners a variety of tasty treats. Good wines though wine list is rather modest. A range of sakés is available too. Service is prompt and exceptionally friendly. It can be a little noisy when busy, as it often is, but not so loud as to make conversation difficult. Tariff was good value/moderate. Happy to give a fulsome recommendation.
I have enjoyed the set lunch here before and it again more than lived up to expectations. The other 3 guests were very happy with our choice of venue, food, etc. Excellent service too.
The amount spent per person included wine.

Turning Japanese This lovely Japanese restaurant, En Izakaya, is a special environment indeed, with its unusual wooden ’kaminka’ style furnishings - literally meaning ’wood without nails’. The dark timbers are subtle enough to really showcase the colours of the kitchen with lovely presentation displayed on their small plates, as much of the food is designed to share. Contemporary methods of Japanese cooking are on show here and they have an extensive wine list and selection of drinks - useful when their kanji character in the name actually translates to ‘drinking party’. Come here for a special occasion, first date or a business meeting, and leave feeling as though you have been fed from the inside of your soul outwards. For lunch you can choose from three set menus to represent the dishes on offer, or enjoy individual dishes such as a shiitake omelette with Japanese fermented soy beans, or seared momen tofu with miso infused eggplant. Best dish: pan seared duck breast with shiitake mushroom and Japanese black vinegar
