Comprised of multiple distinct spaces, the restaurant houses a sushi bar, a formal dining room and a lush outdoor garden patio. The seductive yet whimsical design scheme includes a life size gold statue of a gorilla greeting guests, an oversized faux rhino head sculpture with the phrase "Me So Horny" and a mural by artist Juan Rozas rounds out the eclectic space.
A sushi bar helmed by Nobu alums churn out a menu of traditional sashimi, nigiri and maki rolls alongside Izakaya-style small plates - alongside a well-curated selection of sakes by the glass and bottles as well as a selection of Japanese beers and themed cocktails. In the main dining room, fresh nigiri and sashimi cuts flown in daily along are offered alongside a menu of maki rolls, small Izakaya-style plates and larger main dishes. Open Monday to Saturday, 6pm to 12am.
The Mandrake maki roll featuring crab, salmon, hamachi, blue fin tuna and a creamy jalapeño sauce; pan seared duck gyozas pan with ponzu kaffir lime leaf and a whole fish tempura with sweet & sour, ginger scallion sauce and a grilled 32-ounce Tomahawk ribeye steak with mustard seed sauce, gochujang sauce, rocoto negi sauce, shiso & chimichurri sauce.
