Moments from the water at Marina Bay and Downtown station, Akari Japanese Dining & Bar is both a restaurant and an encyclopaedia of Japanese culinary culture. The menu here groans under the weight of over 70 traditional and contemporary dishes from the Land of the Rising Sun, plus over 20 types of sake and shochu to accompany your meal in authentic style. Inside Akari’s Marina Boulevard premises there are several private dining rooms set apart from the main seating area that are perfect for a romantic rendezvous or business meeting, or you can choose to dine al fresco, with incredible views of Singapore’s skyline.
Quite a pleasant dining experience for us. For business lunches, food quality, good service and quiet atmosphere are of utmost importance. This place satisfies them all. Will be back for more...
Good food, great services The food were very fresh Not too busy or noisy Excellent venue for casual lunch or dinner Service were great too
Disappointing experience. Staff whilst nice were hovering over us our entire meal. Food was average at best. Not an entirely enjoyable dining experience and I will not return
For the ultimate experience at Akari Japanese Dining & Bar, you might want to make enquiries about their four-course set menu, offering a survey of what this Japanese restaurant is capable of and all for a price that’s hard to believe considering that Akari finds itself in the heart of Singapore’s Marina Bay financial district, close to the water along Marina Boulevard and just up Straits View from Downtown station. Another premium way into Akari’s resplendent offering is to book a private dining room and go for the formal, multi-course kaiseki option – traditional Japanese dining at its ceremonial best.
While Akari Japanese Dining & Bar does offer these opulent options for very special occasions, there’s plenty to make some noise about when it comes to simple dining a la carte. Alongside an incredible range of top-shelf whiskies, Japanese sake and shochu, you can indulge in, for instance, the tokusou nigiri sushi platter, with twelve handcrafted and premium pieces presented on a platter, simmered black pork in a delicate broth, grilled marinated yellowtail, premium Wagyu steaks and Japanese-style lobster. With an incredible Marina Bay location, Akari is a popular and refined Japanese restaurant so be sure to book ahead.
