Sheung Wan

Shun Sato's new Sheung Wan restaurant recreates a slice of his upbringing in Japan, yet his cooking is more quietly confident than ever

Tatler Says

Shun Sato’s first solo restaurant is a continuation of his winning streak as a master of the art of the Japanese izakaya. The wabi-sabi-inspired minimalistic decor is countered with buzzing atmosphere during dinner service. Start with sashimi: oysters with yuzu sanbaizu or hamachi with tomato ponzu and crouton are reliable favourites. Potato salad is a work of art with a multitude of textures, while fried foods reign supreme: minced pork-filled chicken wings and truffled scallop-prawn-filled courgette flower tempura are among the most popular dishes. Save room for showstopping carb dishes such as unagi paella and crab miso udon with snow crab. A handful of sakes are available by the bottle; alternatively a great collection of highball cocktails are perfect accompaniment to Censu’s no-fuss dishes.

Signature Dishes

  • Squid white kimuchi
  • Unigiri
