Review

Setting

Tucked away in a quiet soi, this former gambling den has been creatively converted into a hip and minimalist Japanese restaurant and bar offering innovative small bites and sharing plates in the kushiyaki style and more.

Rating : 16/20

Food

Begin your meal with a selection of skewers: charcoal grilled tender angus beef with ponzu or fresh vegetables (such as crunchy okra or crisp asparagus) wrapped in smoky bacon are recommended. The intriguing prawn with durian is both juicy and rich and the strong scent of the fruit is kept to a minimum. Follow this with poke, which is yellowfin tuna in a soy and sesame oil dressing. The tender flesh literally melts on the tongue. Bowl of corn is exceptionally moreish with bacon chunks and French butter adding depth to the charred kernels. Larger plates are offered, such as clams in a well-balanced miso-garlic broth and a perfectly prepared crumbed katsu pork rib chop, which is juicy pork enveloped in a crunchy coating and served with a traditional sauce. There is a limited selection of desserts but leave room for king’s cake or miso caramel koji rice ice cream. Both are home-made and an equally fitting end to the meal.

Rating : 36/40

Wine

The drink list offers an extensive range of sake, shochu and umeshu by the bottle and glass and a well-chosen selection of European wines, also available by the glass.
