For Japanese fine dining in Singapore, one of the best choices is Aoki Restaurant, located within Shaw Centre (1 Scotts Road).
Established in 2003 as a joint venture between Chef Kunio Aoki and the Les Amis Group, the 36-seater restaurant offers the ultimate experience in Japanese haute cuisine fine dining.
Culinary style at the restaurant is traditional, yet with modern undertones that keep the creations – from sushi, sashimi to sukiyaki – refreshingly up-to-date.
For the preparation of the foods, only the best produce sourced directly from Tsukiji Market (Tokyo) and other artisanal suppliers from all over Japan are used.
Typical examples from the restaurant’s a la carte dinner menu include, for example, Chirashi Sushi Tokusen (exceptional grade sashimi presented on a bed of sushi rice) and Thin Sliced White Fish Sashimi with Ponzu Sauce.
In terms of ambience, the restaurant interiors (created by Japanese interior architect Yasuhiro Koichi) capture the beautiful essence of Zen minimalism.
The pristine interiors feature panels of Kumiko Zaiku, an intricate traditional Japanese woodwork, as well as geometric patterned doors and wall panels.
