Where to Find the Best Omakase Restaurants in Hong Kong

Best Omakase Spots in HK 3

Akin to a tasting menu, omakase is a dining style inherited from Japan where the choice of dishes rests upon the chef. In this concept, the chef masterfully selects each course and serves them to an intimate group of diners, capturing both the ingredients’ seasonality and the restaurant’s philosophy.

While omakase is synonymous of sushi, this dining experience has extended far beyond its origins and adapted to the evolving taste and trends of the culinary world. In Hong Kong, it’s not hard to find omakase-style restaurants that employ creativity and freshly imported ingredients, all infused with the element of surprise for an experience that perfectly captures the nuances of the beloved Japanese concept. In this article, we’ve rounded out the best omakase restaurants in Hong Kong for your next dining splurge.

Each sushi reflects precision and creativity using vinegared rice and wasabi for an omakase dining experience like no other.
