A dining concept by chef Tetsuya Wakuda and 50 Eggs Hospitality Group, WAKUDA will be taking up residence at the lobby of Marina Bay Sands hotel.


Diners can indulge in their diverse menu of innovative Japanese dishes such as WAKUDA-style appetisers, sashimi, sushi, tempura, as well as high-quality small plates of grilled items, rice bowls and cold soba.

Ambience At WAKUDA

Inspired by traditional Japanese architecture, WAKUDA's interior incorporates elements of nature as well as modernity and the trendy and vibrant Tokyo mood.

A constant feature throughout the restaurant is Kumiki, a time-honoured wood joinery craft that traces back to the Asuka period (538-710 AD). The entry features an up-lit Kumiki wood façade juxtaposed against a split-faced natural stone wall.

Inside, diners will be immersed in a glowing, soft light and surrounded by rich wood tones, a neutral colour palette, mirrored surfaces and brushed bronze accents. Floor-to-ceiling windows show off the picturesque view of the garden with a Japanese maple tree sitting above water.

In the Main Dining Room, Japanese artist Jun Inoue has created an original ceiling artwork installation titled The Ingredients That Arrived that is accompanied by infinity mirror panels and LED lights to form a vast canopy reminiscent of a bamboo forest.

WAKUDA also has a Bar with gold-leaf-accented wall panels as well as an Omakase Room with elegant dark woods, embossed metal privacy screens and wall panels with iridescent cherry blossom motifs.
