Coveted honour for eighth floor restaurant serving 'sushi in the clouds'
Award-winning chef Endo at work
Japanese restaurant Endo at The Rotunda, situated on the eighth floor of Television Centre's Helios Building in Wood Lane, has been awarded a highly coveted Michelin Star in the new 2020 Michelin Guide.
Presenting the award for the first time to the exclusive 16 seat restaurant, which says it offers 'Sushi in the Clouds', the guide says: "Former Zuma Group executive chef Endo Kazutoshi runs this 15-cover sushi restaurant with a stripped-back, classical Japanese aesthetic and Omakase-style dining."
Endo, seen above receiving his award at Fulham's Hurlingham Club on 7 October, received a string of congratulations from colleagues, including champagne company Charles Heidseck, with a tweet @CHChampagneUK saying: " Third generation sushi master Endo Kazutoshi has been awarded a most-deserved Michelin star for Endo at The Rotunda, where they pour our flagship Brut Réserve.
" His passion for showmanship and performance inspires so we predict this will not be his first!"

Two other celebrated local restaurants retained their Michelin stars - Hammersmith's River Cafe and Fulham's Harwood Arms and King Street restaurant L'Amorosa retained its Bib Gourmand in the new 2020 Michelin Guide.
That means that, once again, it is the only restaurant in our borough to win the prestigious Bib Gourmand, which is awarded to restaurants that are judged to be delivering both good quality and good value by inspectors.
The restaurant, at 278 King Street close to Ravenscourt Park, which was opened by chef patron Andy Needhamin 2014 greeted the news by tweeting @LamorosaLondon:
" L'Amorosa is delighted to have retained our Michelin Bib Gourmand for 2020 , such a great honour. Go team!! ,so proud! Once again we are the only restaurant Hammersmith & Fulham borough. Congratulations also to all the new additions."
L’Amorosa offers informal, modern Italian cooking and service, using a combination of the best British and Italian seasonal ingredients sourced from the same suppliers used in Belgravia. Accompanied by an all-Italian wine list.
