Taka by Sushi Saito
Time Out says
Seats at the three-Michelin-star Sushi Saito (hailed as the best sushi restaurant in the world by Joël Robuchon) in Tokyo are hard to come by, which is all the more reason one should make a pilgrimage to Taka by Sushi Saito, Chef Takashi Saito’s maiden venture out of Tokyo.
It's a coup for both KL's Japanese fine dining scene and ONE IFC (the developer of St Regis Kuala Lumpur) with the opening of Taka by Sushi Saito. Located within the ritzy six-star hotel The St Regis Kuala Lumpur, Taka is helmed by executive Chef Satoshi Uehara, who'll be assisted by sushi chef Masashi Kubota. It's all about the luxury – first-rate seafood flown in from Japan thrice a week, a 16-seater counter made of 300-year-old Japanese Hinoki cypress, bespoke Noren curtains, a collection of the finest sake. Definitely one for the bucket list.
