Wakame Restaurant

Award-Winning Japanese & Asian Restaurant

Bite sized sharing starter plates include tuna belly taco with yuzu guacamole and Gyoza dumplings. The sushi, raw and carpaccio menu is pure produce appreciation with the finest marbled grade 9 beef, hamachi sashimi and Norwegian salmon. Main dishes harmonise precision preparation with generous portions like our whole oven-baked seabass, truffle risotto and braised short-ribs.

Family-run and family welcoming with a spirit of Japanese omotenashi hospitality, Wakame invites you for business-casual dining, date-night romance and special occasions.

Bento Boxes

Brighten up your business lunch with a Wakame bento box. Available from 12 – 5pm daily, our ready-to-eat bento boxes are bursting with Japanese flavours for a lunch break that is anything but boring. From karubi-style BBQ and salmon sashimi to vibrant plant-based dim sum, this is bento the Wakame way.
