Clearly occupying on a historic Keppel Bay Island is not enough. Takumi Restaurant has dolled up their interiors in such a classic way, yet in a good manner that draws all manners of patrons. The restaurant is led by Chef Okumura, a chef who has deep appreciation for Japanese cuisine and passion for food. Not to say, it draws endless crowds on a daily basis.
Spanning across a wide space, Takumi Restaurant attends to dining folks of all ages, it’s featuring dishes from the restaurant’s famed sushi, robatayaki and teppanyaki counters and also showcases the freshest gourmet produce, some of which are exclusively sourced direct from local farms and ports throughout Japan.
Serious Japanese creations at Keppel Bay
Chef Okumura worked under many influential culinary leaders and he mastered the art of kaiseki dining. One interesting highlight of the restaurant will be Tuna Live Cutting Show happening on a monthly basis.
Seasonal Omakase Menu ($130) is not a casual affair here, the dishes are orchestrated symphony throughout the menu. The seasonal leek soup is topped with Sea urchin, Scallops, Crab Meat and Nano Hana. It is slightly sweet as you scoop up all the good stuff.
An interesting appetizers’ selection await the diners with choices as the selection changes with the seasons – and they all taste pretty good as well. The assorted sashimi includes Flounder with Sea Urchin, Puffer Fish, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack and Golden Eye Snapper. To be honest, the variation is really better than many other restaurants.
A5 Miyazaki Beef Sirloin Hot Pot is definitely a hit with us because it comes with meats that are basically tasty. The broth leaves every spoonful wanting more.
Amberjack and Tuna Zuke Don is filled with sliced raw fish, specially marinated sauce on the rice. The Japanese rice tastes just so good, you’ll be sure to finish em all.
Japanese dishes are good, vibes are good. There’s nothing not to like about Takumi Restaurant for a good weekday dinner night out at Keppel Bay. You will definitely have an amazing omakase session with a beautiful waterfront view.
