Mandarin Oriental Singapore, 5 Raffles Avenue, S(039797) TEL: 6885 3595 teppanya.com.sg
The restaurant offers an intimate and interactive teppanyaki experience; service is warm and convivial, with the attending chefs engaging in friendly banter with the diners. Decorative elements within the restaurant are kept to a minimum—the pared-back look combines warm wood furnishings with a selection of artworks and a shoji screen that add to its Japanese-inspired interior. Highlights on the menu include Kumi’s No. 1 Special, which features a sweetsavoury mix of white fish, avocado and crabmeat, baked in a white sauce. Other notable dishes include the expertly seared king prawns and the tenderloin.
