Shunsuke Ota (formerly of Nobu) continues to wow his multicultural clients with authentic Japanese dishes prepared using a mix of traditional and modern techniques. This popular restaurant is located in the foyer of the Burbury Hotel & Apartments in Barton. Respectable Japanese decor is combined with industrial ‘chic’ and softened with light timbers, giving the dining area almost a Nordic feel.
The menu offers you a tantalising choice between a well-priced tasting menu and a superb à la carte menu of sharing dishes. Robata skewers are slow-cooked to perfection over hot coals. The chicken yakitori and pork belly skewers come with a citrusy yuzu kosho miso dipping sauce. Chargrilled scotch fillet has a complex yet appealing flavour palette, thanks to the coating of Japanese seven spices. Herb miso and spicy dried plum accompany the juicy steak beautifully.
PSST! Desserts such as wasabi ice-cream are just as inspiring as the savoury dishes, and it is well worth saving room for them.
