KOMA Singapore Is A Dazzling Tribute To Japanese Culture, Cuisine And Design

KOMA, the latest addition to the roster of award-winning restaurants at Marina Bay Sands wows guests the moment they enter the 230-seat establishment; they walk along a 20m-long passageway flanked by orange arches inspired by the torii gates of a Kyoto shrine. This passageway leads to the main dining room, where the eye is drawn to a massive Japanese bell embossed with faces that overlooks a traditional Japanese foot bridge and reflecting pool. Talk about making a first impression.

It isn’t all just about aesthetics, however, as the food and drink are just as impressive. Sushi, slow-grilled robata and izakaya-style cuisine take pride of place, served up under the watchful eye of executive chef and 30-year industry veteran Kunihiro Moroi. You can also take your pick from over 30 types of sake sourced from across Japan as well as innovative signature sake cocktails; the Sorairo, for one, is a bewitching blend of honjozo sake, violet liqueur, Mathilde peach liqueur and orange bitters.

Don’t leave without trying the Snow Aged Niigata Wagyu Beef, in which top-grade A5 wagyu is aged for 30 days according to a traditional 200-year-old process called yukimuro, or snow-ageing. The result is richly marbled, melt-in-your-mouth meat that is full of umami flavour.

Immerse yourself in KOMA’s compelling setting and modern Japanese cuisine today.
