Known for its unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine and culture the new venue at the iconic Opera Terrace atop the historic Grade II-listed Market Building is a stunning addition to brand’s existing locations.
Guests enter the restaurant via a spiral orange marble staircase featuring a large-scale street art mural depicting Japanese mythology. The dining room with its Oscar Niemeyer inspired black and white marble floors offers guests three environmental experiences. A ‘living ceiling’, alive with lush South American & Japanese plants and foliage, welcomes guests in the entryway, bar and beyond. The dramatic setting continues with a bustling exposed kitchen framed by Japanese lanterns, high energy sushi bar with its abstract Japanese ‘fan’ ceiling, and sweeping views of the Piazza below. The private dining room the copper metal curtains draw the eye to original building wooden beams, while the double sided mirrored and Japanese screen panels frame the room that also features its own entrance and balcony.

From the table tops in parchment leather or liquid metal and selenite stone pendant lights to the stunning screens across the restaurant space featuring mother of pearl and eggshell.
