Review on Endo at the Rotunda

Endo at the Rotunda is the eponymous debut Japanese sushi restaurant from chef Endo Kazutoshi, a third generation sushi master from Yokohama, who previously held the position of Executive Chef within the international Zuma chain. Launched in April 2019, it's set on the eighth floor of the Graham Dawbarn-designed Helios building, part of the redevelopment of the huge BBC Television Centre site in White City.

Designed by the acclaimed award winning Japanese architects Kengo Kuma, the interior keeps things simple with a minimalist design. Flooded with light from the surrounding windows with views over White City, the two-hundred-year-old Hinoki wood sushi counter, sourced from the mythical forests of Tochigi takes centre stage, where diners can watch the chefs put on their culinary show. Illuminated by a large lighting installation with organically shaped surfaces of fabric resembling traditional Japanese Washi, it appears as a giant cloud from street level. There's also a charming Japanese garden terrace to enjoy pre dinner aperitifs.

Endo and the kitchen brigade showcase a signature Omakase of eighteen courses, alongside an a la carte and lunch menu, serving only ethically sourced fish from Scotland, Cornwall and Brittany using independent and trusted suppliers. The water used for their signature Yamagata rice is shipped in barrels from Endo's home village to ensure the perfect pH balance. Endo's traditional techniques display high levels of skill and eye-popping presentation, with bold flavours delivering some real culinary fireworks. It is no surprise that the restaurant was awarded a prestigious Michelin star in the 2020 edition of the Guide.

Accompanying the dishes there's a concise international wine list, a selection of sakes and a short list of signature cocktails.
