About
Stillness... Serenity... Harmony いらっしゃいませ Irashaimase (welcome) to Shoukouwa — your oasis of calm in the city centre, where you will savour authentic, world-class fine-dining edomae sushi experience, direct from Ginza in Tokyo. Edomae sushi tradition dates back to the illustrious Edo era in Japan. Nowadays, edomae sushi chefs take pride in serving only the best seasonal seafood and produce, presenting diners with the purest flavours of the food with minimal cooking and manipulation. At Shoukouwa, the fresh fish, seafood and produce are flown daily to Singapore from Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji Market. The art of fine sushi is one that is contemplative and considered – like a Zen expression. The perfect sushi is a delicate balance of the quality of fish, proportion and temperature. The fish must be of the highest grade, undamaged during the catch, and very fresh. Ideally, the perfect sushi should be consumed within seconds of being served, with either chopsticks or clean hands. Our Japanese chefs hail from this edomae sushi tradition, having honed their artistry and skills with years of experience at prestigious Ginza establishments. With no more than eight seats right in front of the chef’s preparation table, our guests will have direct interaction with and personalised attention by our chefs. Shoukouwa is launched under the Emmanuel Stroobant Group Luxury Collection in partnership with Japanese cuisine specialist Hanachiyo, who co-founded Sushi Shikon in Hong Kong, which remains the first and only Japanese restaurant in Hong Kong with the distinction of three Michelin stars. She subsequently formed a restaurant consultancy that serves clients throughout Asia, including the restaurant Mizumi at the Wynn Resorts in Macau, who seek to offer the finest, authentic Japanese cuisine to discerning international consumers, across genres that include sushi, teppanyaki, tempura, ramen and more. We welcome you... いただきます Itadakimasu!

I don’t mind the expense (which was very high) but I do expect perfection for 2 Michelin stars. Food was pretty good but they rushed us which was unacceptable and the whole thing ended up being a bit of a non event. Hard to think...More

I would say business attire, smart casual to cocktail. It's a pretty nice restaurant and very small, so look good.

Greetings from shoukouwa. Apologies but we do not serve Yu Sheng during the Chinese New Year period. We focus primarily on our lunch and dinner Omakase menus only.
