Please note that Ginza Yoshihiro’s bar is open from 4:30pm until 1am.
A new addition to the many bars and restaurants inside the luxurious Marina Mandarin hotel on Raffles Boulevard, Ginza Yoshihiro is a coup for the Japanese dining scene in the Marina Bay area. Ginza Yoshihiro is a family-run group of restaurants that have been established in Japan for over thirty years, and now the successful brand is set to introduce Singapore gourmets to their artful sushi and sashimi and, in particular, the restaurant’s refined regional Japanese specialties that have made Ginza Yoshihiro a household name in its home country.
The Ginza Yoshihiro family of upscale Japanese sushi restaurants is famous back in Japan, having made multiple television appearances and garnering critical acclaim for their careful approach to Japanese cuisine that perfectly balances time-honoured tradition with the demands of contemporary gastronomy. The Singapore outpost of Ginza Yoshihiro finds a home in the Marina Mandarin hotel at Marina Bay, and a fitting home it is – this restaurant represents the kind of elegance and luxury – albeit tempered by the restraint appropriate to a group of sushi auteurs – that the hotel itself embodies.
The decor at Ginza Yoshihiro’s Raffles Boulevard address is suitably clean-lined and minimal, all polished pine and recessed lighting. The kitchen, helmed by a member of the Ginza Yoshihiro family’s second generation, chef Nishioka, inherits all the acumen of its elder brother back in Tokyo. Signature dishes include the tendon served with fresh prawns and seasonal vegetables and their famous take on the traditional winter dish of oden, a stew of various ingredients (depending on the season and regional variation) steeped in a dashi broth. Absolutely unmissable for Singapore’s fans of Japanese cuisine, reservations at this up-and-comer in Marina Bay are, proportionately, essential.
this was a nice place to visit and quite enjoyable
Great ambience and food. Cawanmushi was just amazing. Ordered the set, so much rice and could not really finish all, dessert was matcha ice cream, good taste
Excellent food quality and service. Chef was v good. Best omakase I have tried, though did not lived up to its name for its oden.
