Our omakase experience is specially designed for immersion in Japanese cuisine. The literal translation of omakase is, ‘I leave it up to you’. Basically, this means that the diner is entrusting the chef and allowing them to choose and serve the dishes they want. Instead of ordering a la carte, omakase gives your chef the power to present a series of both modern and traditional Japanese plates and flex their artistic creativity. This style of dining is similar to a dégustation and will begin with the lightest dishes and end with the heaviest dishes. It is a truly remarkable and unique dining experience that can never be replicated as it is based on the chef’s unique interpretation of your tastes and what you would like to eat.
According to the Michelin Guide, ‘few formal dining experiences are as revered or as intimidating’ as omakase. Why? Because when you order omakase you expect your chef to be innovative and impressive. The idea is for the meal to be an artistic performance that showcases their favourite Japanese foods while also complementing your own tastes and preferences. For the diner, omakase is an opportunity to be surprised and swept away by the chef’s signature cooking style and delivery.
Don’t let the 16 courses intimidate you. Each dish is designed to be quite small and the complete meal will leave you well satisfied without feeling too full or like you have overeaten. The chef will design your omakase experience to be harmonious and seamlessly blend from one dish to the next. If you like, the chef can also share stories and concepts behind each Japanese dish, enhancing your dining experience with interesting facts and the history of the food.
When should I order omakase dining?
Omakase is just as much an experience as it is a meal in itself. So order omakase dining for events and occasions where the food is the highlight. You want people to take their time relishing each dish that has been brought out and enjoying every moment around the dinner table. An omakase meal should never be eaten while rushed or distracted – you want food to be the focus.
Order the omakase experience when you are celebrating a special occasion and want to enjoy a formal dining experience with friends and loved ones. It’s the perfect experience for long, drawn-out events such as New Year, Christmas, anniversaries, or birthdays when you can spend hours around the dining table.
