Let fate guide you to Central’s newest teppanyaki restaurant: ENISHI offers a unique culinary experience crafted by three talented chefs – Shun Sato, Toru Takano, and Ami Hamasaki. ENISHI, meaning fate in Japanese, is fitting for how the chefs met while in Australia and shared the same vision of exploring the world through their craft. ENISHI is the realization of that dream.

Look & Feel: Hosted by a Husband & Wife team across an intimate 23-seat space, the restaurant gives a warm, intimate, and cozy setting for diners. The restaurant offers two distinct dining experiences — a teppanyaki tasting menu experience (11 seats) or à la carte dining (12 seats) for a more casual experience or just sake or wines. With a focus on custom. mer-centricity, ENISHI makes it a priority to understand its diners’ preferences and enhance every aspect of their dining journey to provide a truly personalized experience that feels like home.

On The Menu: The chefs welcome you into their home away from home with a teppanyaki experience that embodies their heritage, personal experiences & philosophies. ENISHI’s 11-course tasting menu for the teppanyaki counter features unique dishes like Oyster Sanbaizu, a dish that pays homage to Chef Shun’s hometown, featuring a fresh oyster from Miyagi. For Shun’s Market Sashimicourse, he uses a trick he learned from the fishermen at Tsukiji to balance the richness of fatty fish with yogurt and dashi purée. Chef Ami references her love for Chinese dim sum in her Shirako Gyoza, served with Hokkaido shiso flower and crown daisy green sauce. The diverse range of dishes showcases the creativity and skills for elevating ingredients through great technique and finesse to reveal the natural umami flavor in every dish.
