Kioku by Endo is a Japanese-influenced restaurant located on the rooftop of The OWO (The Old War Office) - one of London's largest food hubs. Endo Kazutoshi is the chef patron behind the concept – also a third-generation sushi chef and patron of Michelin-starred Endo at the Rotunda – where he brings together influences and experiences from throughout his life. As such, Kioku melds Japanese and Mediterranean influences that reflect his time spent between Japan and Spain.

Boasting panoramic views of Whitehall, Kioku by Endo comprises a 55-cover dining room, an eight-seat Chef’s Table, and a 55-cover alfresco terrace. For those looking to enjoy a more intimate meal, there is also an eight-seat private dining room for celebrations and corporate meals.

Connected to the restaurant, but located on the ground floor, is Kioku Bar, a bespoke 25-cover bar serving an exceptional sake programme curated by sake master Natsuki Kikuya, plus an inventive cocktail list. Integral to the experience is a bespoke record player which plays a selection of tracks chosen by the guests themselves, encouraging a fun and convivial atmosphere.

‘Kioku’ is a Japanese term meaning ‘memory’, with the restaurant based around Endo’s most significant life experiences. Some of the most influential are his travels to Yokohama, Tokyo and Spain, and diners are able to see this reflected through the interiors and food at the restaurant.

Kazutoshi's star has risen in recent years, thanks in large part to his omakase restaurant at the old Television Centre in White City. His meticulous, precise cooking and one-to-one style has garnered widespread national acclaim, and he’s now widely considered one of the greatest sushi masters in the country. He is also chef-patron of Creative Restaurant Group - the restaurant group co-founded by Misha Zelman that handles restaurants such as Humo, SUMI and 20 Berkeley.
