About the Restaurant

Akira Back: Modern Japanese Cuisine with a Korean Essence

Panning across two levels of the hotel, this signature restaurant specializes in Japanese cuisine with a Korean essence. Akira Back imbibes flavours from the ancient back alleys of Tokyo and metamorphoses them into a contemporary gastronomic experience. Replete with a robatayaki grill which originates from a centuries-old country style of cooking by Japanese fishermen, the restaurant distinguishes itself with an eight-metre tall sake wall which houses some of the finest sakes and wines in the sub-continent.
