Enishi is the latest teppanyaki restaurant in town, led by three Japanese chefs, Shun Sato, Toru Takano, and Ami Hamasaki. The restaurant’s name means “fate” in Japanese, which reflects the bond between people destined to meet, just like the three chefs who met while working in Australia. Enishi has 23 seats and two dining experiences to choose from: teppanyaki (11 seats) or à la carte (12 seats).
You can enjoy a “home away from home” teppanyaki experience, where you can try dishes like Oyster Sanbaizu, which is a nod to chef Shun’s hometown, with fresh oysters from Miyagi Prefecture. The Market Sashimi course will remind you of dining at Tsukiji. Other highlights include Ezo Awabi and Wagyu Tenderloin.

After undergoing a renovation in 2020 following four decades of serving notable guests, the InterContinental Hong Kong has reopened under a new name, Regent Hong Kong.

With its reopening, the revamped restaurant features an exquisite range of in-house aged meats, seafood, and wines, in addition to the return of the venue’s renowned salad bar.
