It is precisely this timeless reputation that makes your first step into Nadaman such an enchanting surprise. As opposed to the cosy shoji-screen interior that many Japanese restaurants opt for, Nadaman offers a refreshing, energizing open space that is really quite invigorating.
The food of course, is no less uplifting. A restaurant famous for their kaiseki, each course was elegantly presented, light on the palate, and absolutely delicious. They also serve excellent teppanyaki and teriyaki, with a proper teppanyaki counter if you prefer to watch the art form that preparing it is.
Quite simply, there’s a reason why Nadaman has maintained such an impeccable reputation over the years. It’s an establishment that is clearly committed to quality, and manages to do justice to the many facets of Japanese cuisine. That’s not an easy feat. (May 2012)
