About IKYU

If you’re feeling flushed and flustered in Singapore’s hip Tiong Bahru district, take a break in a Japanese restaurant whose name means just that. Ikyu means take a break in Japanese, and while this restaurant, with its stylish, muted interior is the perfect haven, we’re sure the name refers more to founding chef Seki and IKYU’s iconoclastic attitude towards traditional – or rather conventional – Japanese cuisine. For while the Zen-like art of Japanese cuisine is fully embraced at IKYU, what comes out of the kitchen at IKYU’s Yong Siak Street headquarters is like nothing you’ve seen, smelt, touched or tasted. Or heard… read on.

More about IKYU, Singapore

Listen up! IKYU’s founder and head chef Takuma Seki likes to sing in his kitchen. Good, this befits his stated mission to always make his customers happy by serving them only the finest food. Here at IKYU, tucked away along Yong Siak Street in Singapore’s on-trend Tiong Bahru district, this means sourcing the finest sakes and premium Koshihikari rice from Uonuma in chef Seki’s very own Niigata prefecture. It means serving Miyazaki Champion wagyu beef. It means flying the freshest seafood, vegetables and fruit direct from Tsukiji, the most prominent fish market in Japan, three times a week.

This all adds up to Japanese cuisine that is artisanal and highly contemporary at the same time, cuisine that makes us understand how our idiosyncratic chef Seki earned his stripes as chef de cuisine at Singapore’s famous Hide Yamamoto. Taking a seat at IKYU’s sake or sushi bars or at a dining table, you’d have to be crazy to have missed the interior design at work in Yong Siak Street and Tiong Bahru’s latest culinary fixture. Conjured up by rising interior design star JQ the Magician with the express intentions of IKYU’s conceptual father in mind, he has created a perfect setting for the unconventional Japanese dining experience that IKYU has gifted to Singapore.
