Niju Restaurant London Review: New Japanese Culinary Gem in Mayfair

Niju restaurant london review

London’s culinary scene welcomes a new addition with the opening of Niju restaurant. The Japanese grill and sushi bar is at 20 Berkeley Street in Mayfair. Niju marks a transition from its predecessor, a modern British restaurant, into a dining experience that draws closer to the culinary ethos of Endo Kazutoshi.

He is the famous chef behind the Michelin-starred Endo at the Rotunda, Sumi in Notting Hill, and the upcoming Whitehall restaurant Kioku by Endo. The Creative Restaurant Group, under the oversight of Kazutoshi as culinary director, aims to offer a unique “Katei Ryori” cooking style at Niju, which translates to “home-cooked food” in Japanese, promising an informal yet decadent dining experience​.

Niju Restaurant London Menu

Niju will be helmed by Head Chef Chris Golding and Head Sushi Chef David Bury. He brings his expertise from Endo’s popular Notting Hill restaurant, Sumi. While the full menu details are yet to be disclosed, anticipation is high for the dishes Endo himself will add to the menu.

In addition to the restaurant, the venue’s 20-cover downstairs cocktail bar, Nipperkin, will continue to operate. It offers expertly crafted cocktails and a new addition of Japanese-influenced sando sandwiches​.

The restaurant is part of a broader strategy by the Creative Restaurant Group, which also operates HUMO in Mayfair, which received its first Michelin star earlier this month. This move reflects the group’s ambition to build a high-end London restaurant portfolio. Niju is a flagship offering, combining traditional Japanese culinary practices with a contemporary dining ambiance​​.

With bookings already open, Niju is poised to become a must-visit for aficionados of Japanese cuisine. It is also the place to be for those looking for a unique dining experience in the heart of London​.
