Waku Ghin – Singapore

The name ‘Waku Ghin’ is derived from two Japanese words: ‘Waku’ meaning to ‘arise’ (like water pouring forth from a hot spring) and ‘Ghin’ meaning ‘silver’, Chef Tetsuya’s signature colour found throughout the 8,000 square foot space, featuring an intimate bar, three private cocoon rooms and a main dining room.

Each private room is helmed by a chef, bringing forward the season’s best produce to the Chef’s Table, which includes signatures such as the Marinated Botan Shrimp with Sea Urchin and Caviar and Wagyu with Wasabi and Citrus Soy. Then be escorted to the main dining room for desserts and coffee while soaking in sensational skyline views.

Food & Drinks

Not least the signature dish, a luxe arrangement of marinated raw botan ebi shrimp and caviar served in a sea urchin replete with plenty of its roe.

The quality of the food and produce was first rate- lobster, sea urchin, caviar, wagyu and abalone. The best dish was undoubtedly the botan shrimp with caviar- a unique creation bursting with umami and very refreshing. The abalone however didn’t quite cut it, tasting rather bland and falling short in texture.

The crab, sea urchin, and wagyu were world class dishes. Overall, a phenomenal meal in a fun teppan setting.

Wakuda-san is also a cocktail connoisseur who takes great personal interest in the quality of the small, crisp, perfectly formed drinks served (alongside caviar, oysters and other soigné snacks) at Waku Ghin’s bar.

Services

Service was superb and almost impeccable, Ambiance is pleasant. Decor is first class.
The staff were great with attention to detail and style of service.

Your chef starts with a presentation of the raw seafood but so well-trained and knowledgeable that it was a great conversation the whole meal through. The attention to detail and the “show” part of cooking was memorable.
