The Epitome of Japanese Cuisine Nestled amid the lush greens of the Rooftop Gardens in Orchard Central, Kuriya Penthouse offers its exclusive diners a quiet oasis of fine food and indulgence. Full length windows proffer stunning views of the cityscape, while the decor exudes quiet class and sophistication. Master Chef Koezuka Yoshihiko helms the kitchen here and you know you are in good hands. Among his stints at various first-class establishments, Chef Koe, as he prefers to be known, cites his most memorable encounter in Japan as the once-in-a-lifetime experience of preparing dinner to Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako, while serving in Hotel New Omi, Shiga Prefecture. In his words, the essence of Japanese cuisine lies in ‘enjoying nature’s blessing by bringing out each ingredient’s best flavour’, while presenting them in an understated yet elegant style. Ingredients are picked from the best in Japan and flown in thrice every week, ensuring premium quality, optimal freshness and often bringing rare and seasonal catches that even restaurants in Japan may not offer. Due to the surprising nature of each ingredient, it calls for Chef Koe’s creative expertise on the “Omakase” style courses. Simply put, it allows diners to ‘leave it to the chef’ while he personalizes a menu based on individual’s preferences on ingredients, cooking style and tastes. It is almost as if you have your own personal chef, who will find the flavours that your tastebuds will respond to - it is an experience that truly shows Chef Koe's skills and intuition at their best. As gourmet purveyors of a fine dining experience, reservations are required at all times. Price of Set Lunches start from $65 while Dinner Course Menus start from $150. An alfresco terrace is available for you to bask in the evening atmosphere while sipping on the exclusive range of sake champagnes, wines and creative concoction of cocktails.
