(Closed) KUMO Kaiseki

AsianJapanese

Inspired by the wild forests of Japan, the restaurant ambience features natural elements that complement the traditional Japanese school of kaiseki cuisine. Kaiseki, an art that balances the taste, texture, appearance and colours of food, uses only fresh and seasonal ingredients to enhance flavours.

Fresh Sashimi

Colours and flavours play out beautifully on the plates here as Chef Nobu pays particular attention to his seasonable menu. In particular, the sashimi, as the fish is flown in almost daily from Japan, and the savoury dashi stock, which is a signature element used across the menu. Too bad about its interiors, which is a little too stark for our taste and can give off an uninviting vibe. It does not help that its location, smack in the middle of the Central Business District, leads most diners to treat it as a quick, eat-and-get-out space. The restaurant deserves more time and attention for its well turned-out, decently-priced kaiseki (traditional multi-course) menu.

Piece of Japan in Singapore

We've had the Kaiseki experience in Japan but never in Singapore.  It was an opportunity to compare and contrast.  We were invited for a food tasting in August 12.

The Kaiseki experience is very dependent on the chef but this day we had a choice of the beef wagyu and the ribeye.

Kudos to the HGW team for organizing & inviting me for the review session

Myself, being quite a fan of sushi & sashimi, as well as a self professed meatarian couldn’t be more pleased to be seated at KUMO to try out their signature Kaiseki menus.

Forgettable

Went for the $168 kaiseke for myself and the wagyuset for my wife. For the price paid, i must say that the quality of food is just so-so, not much of a wow factor. Ordered some additional food for the kids, and charged exhorbitant prices. $10 for a plain chawanmushi, and only half full in a
