The Innocent Carvery isn't a Yakiniku-ya Japanese barbecue restaurant, nor is it a Teppanyaki style steak house. The Innocent Carvery is a European-style cozy and comforting restaurant which offers guest the opportunity to enjoy Japanese Wagyu in a relaxed atmosphere. The Innocent Carvery gets its name from the concept that a carvery, or place where meat is freshly cut for you, have ingredients that are pure, natural and unadulterated. The rank of beef or the birthplace of the cow, are a few standards or criterion, however without just relying on specific brands, our specialists expertly and carefully select the best wagyu to provide you on the day of your meal. Slowly savor the umami and enjoy each sumptuous cut of Japanese Wagyu at The Innocent Carvery.
