If you’re looking for a boujee joint for Japanese sushi, look no further than Taiga Dining! With a mere 11 seats, Taiga offers an intimate and cosy Japanese fine dining sushi-ya experience. Taiga’s exclusivity is also emphasised by their unique entrance: a hidden door inspired by the rocky landscapes of the Kochi Prefecture in Japan!
Helmed by chef and founder Taiga Kanekuni, the restaurant exudes opulence and class. With over 20 years of training under his belt in the fine art of Edo-style sushi, Chef Kanekuni worked at omakase restaurants Sushi Ayumu and Sushi Kou before deciding to open his own.
Taiga’s interior is decorated in a contemporary fashion, in primarily dark tones of black and dark grey, giving off a moody ambience. The interior and architecture of Taiga is also inspired by the rocky hills, mountains and meandering rivers of the Kochi Prefecture—home of Taiga’s chef and founder, Chef Taiga Kanekuni.
Taiga only serves course menus for lunch and dinner, with lunch priced at $280/$380/$480 and dinner priced at $380/$480. Every item in Taiga’s courses are carefully selected, all made with some of the finest seasonal ingredients Japan has to offer. Chef Kanekuni utilises ingredients obtained from a singular trusted source of his, from whom he has patronised for the past 10 years. Taiga focuses on auction-grade and wild-caught seafood, rare ingredients, as well as special ingredients from Chef Kanekuni’s own hometown! Some ingredients used include codfish sperm, Iranian beluga caviar, Toyama purple shrimp, skipjack tuna, pomelo and more!
