Waku Ghin

AsianEuropeanFusionJapanese

 

 

Waku Ghin, recently ranked 39th on the coveted 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' list.

 

The name 'Waku Ghin' is derived from two Japanese words: ‘Waku’ means to 'arise' (like water pouring forth from a hot spring) and 'Ghin' means 'silver', which is Chef Tetsuya's favorite color found throughout this stunning restaurant.

 

That same personal imprint and attention to detail is also on exhibit in the main dining room which seats 25 guests per seating, for an exclusive view of the Singapore skyline.

 

Chef Tetsuya is the first person appointed Sake Ambassador outside of Japan, making his selection the best in the world.

Tetsuya Wakuda has done it again

Many top-notch restaurants are usually terribly overrated, but I was pleasantly surprised by the experience here. We've been to Tetsuya Wakuda's other restaurant in the past, and Waku Ghin did not pale in comparison. The environment is spacious, and yet feels exclusive. The service was befitting of the price tag. The Botan Shrimp is by far my favourite dish from the smorgasbord of choices.

Wine Pairing was Bad Choice

Was with a friend to celebrate her 40s birthday at Waku Ghin, the food quality was super and very fresh well worth it. The only thing was the Sommerlier was so proud and his recommendation of wine pairing with each course was far too extended .. It gave us a feeling of feeling unwell at the end of

Once in a lifetime

Tetsuya Wakuda sure knows how to host a party: at Waku Ghin, his only outpost from Tetsuya in Sydney, only 25 diners are admitted per seating (maximum of two seatings per night) to occupy the eight seats in each of the four rooms. By now, we've all heard the drill: the diners are led through the

Waku Ghin re-visit: Still as good as it gets

There is not that many gastronomy places in the world that I’ve visited more than twice. I can count with my fingers that a few of those restaurants are L’Arpege, Gagnaire Paris and L’Ambroisie. The new restaurant that just join my “exclusive list” is Waku Ghin (WG), currently Tetsuya
