Take a perch at the 12-seater sushi counter to be close to the action, an element of the Ronald Lu-designed main dining room that features discrete booth seating and a revolving digital art collection, to sample highlights from the menu like smoked botan ebi with hokkaido scallop mousse; uni truffle paste toast; takoyaki croquette with tonkatsu mayo; and uni & bone marrow noodle, in which delicate yet flavourful uni noodles are masterfully slipped through an unctuous bone marrow jelly table-side.

You’ll also be able to pair your meal with imaginative cocktails – the Bloody Piggy is a rift on a classic Bloody Mary with Shichimi spice mix and crispy bacon – as well as an extensive selection of sakes.
