With Santoku, contemporary and sophisticated Japanese dining arrives in West Africa. The 400m2 restaurant offers the delights of world-class Asian fusion cuisine in an environment crafted by international talent. The team behind Nobu in London and Dubai worked with Santoku to create a range of dishes, from Otsumami snacks and Zensai sharing dishes to soups and noodles. The name ‘Santoku’ means innovation and experimentation, concepts that the

chefs have explored and which result in a menu that combines traditional Japanese culinary customs with contemporary cuisine. These ideas are also apparent in the restaurant’s design, where influences of ancient Eastern philosophy are merged with modern Western style. Hubert du Givenchy sourced traditional Japanese woodwork, and a ceiling crafted in bamboo distinguish the restaurant in its exclusive, residential location Accra.
