Waku Ghin by Tetsuya Wakuda officially reopens to the public today (1 March 2021) at Marina Bay Sands after an extensive renovation since June 2019.
Established in 2010, Waku Ghin is Chef Tetsuya Wakuda’s first overseas restaurant and it has won multiple awards over the years.
One of the most famous chefs in Australia, Chef Tetsuya Wakuda is a Japanese-born Australian chef based in Sydney, Australia. He opened his restaurant, Tetsuya’s, in the Australian city in 1989 and it remains one of the top restaurants in the city until today.
The revamped Waku Ghin leans heavily towards Chef Tetsuya’s Japanese roots, featuring a refined selection of the best Japanese produce across different seasons and regions.
Diners can look forward to new experiences, including an a la carte menu offered at a 24-seater extended bar dining area, as well as a selection of fresh grill items as part of the Chef’s Table omakase menu.
“The new Waku Ghin is more contemporary and accessible via the expanded offering at The Bar. But guests can also find pockets of exclusivity through our two private dining rooms and Chef’s Table. From culinary origins to design inspiration, I’ve taken the time to dig deeper into my Japanese roots to present a fresh new interpretation of Waku Ghin – one where diners get to journey and taste the best of Japan across different prefectures and seasons,” said Chef Tetsuya.
