Best rack of lamb in Singapore. Really delicious. Highlight recommend trying the rack of lamb as it rivals and rack of lamb anywhere.

My wife and I wanted to have a "date night" with good food and nice wine. We decided on Wakanui as my wife is from New Zealand and hadn't been for a few years. Getting to the restaurant on a Saturday evening is fun, as...you need to locate the elevator hidden in the corner of the West tower in order to get up to Level #4. Once you get out of the elevator, the restaurant looks inviting and nice. The ambience is nice, warm and professional- one could say welcoming. The menu is interesting with starter consisting of a lamb chop, or a pork short rib to get you salivating for the meat ahead. The overall taste and presentation of the food is ok, a step up over average, but not what we have experienced at other restaurants of this caliber in SIngapore. The wines recommended were quite nice and enjoyable. Overall our experience did not live up to expectations and we found that the service was less than attentive. We noticed that other tables (like ourselves) on occasion had to half raise our hand to get someone's attention, and we found it odd, that on arrival, no-one actually explained the menu or the daily specials to us. All up, we walked away thinking it was nice, but nothing special for the price paid.More

Had a delightful New Year Eve's lunch here. Food was good, excellent ambiance, place wasn't crowded during our visit, and staff are gracious and friendly. Compliments to Anand for the wonderful and attentive service.

Hands down the best lamb chops in town! Meats are cooked over binchotan charcoal, giving it a nice smoky finish. Restaurant ambience is lovely for a quiet night out with loved ones or business setting. Last but not least, Peter was a great host!

Food was lovely. Canterbury steak was beautifully cooked, and nice soups etc. Unfortunately there was a hair on the shaker, waiters had masks half on (on or off - we don’t mind but make a decision), slow and irritating. It was enough to make it...uncomfortable so we won’t be back. Shame as the food was nice.More

Went for the krisflyer one-for-one mains. Only the ala cart was available but do note only the cheapest main would be complementary. The lamp chops and steak sandwich was very good and tasty. The grass fed steak was not too bad. Service was attentive and...good. Good views of the area and the building itself has good landscaping. Was quiet and nice but the downside is also that most shops weren’t open on a sat afternoon.More

Nice family lunch. Appetiser lamb chop is a superb must try dish. Set lunch is value for money. Bill was given wrongly to another table though.

Brought my family here for my dad's birthday dinner. Suffice to say that all of us enjoyed the meal. The ribeye was cooked to perfection - my dad enjoyed it, and even my mom who doesn't normally eat beef because of the smell, says that...the beef here does not have that smell. Peter, our server for the night, must be commended for his attentive service - he makes sure that every detail is addressed, from the glasses on the table, right down to what to do with leftover steak that is taken home. Thanks for a wonderful evening!More

The full lamb rack was very substantial. The A5 wagyu was grilled to perfection. The grilled Octopus is just not enough. The potato mash was absolutely creamy, cheesy and smokey. I wish the meats came w gravy or sauce. I suppose its japanese style.
