Waku Ghin


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Waku Ghin, recently ranked 39th on the coveted 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' list. The name 'Waku Ghin' is derived from two Japanese words: ‘Waku’ means to 'arise' (like water pouring forth from a hot spring) and 'Ghin' means 'silver', which is Chef Tetsuya's favorite color found throughout this stunning restaurant. That same personal imprint and attention to detail is also on exhibit in the main dining room which seats 25 guests per seating, for an exclusive view of the Singapore skyline. Chef Tetsuya is the first person appointed Sake Ambassador outside of Japan, making his selection the best in the world.

Prior to this visit, I was told by many that Waku Ghin is known for its generosity with expensive ingredients and devotion to every minute detail on the plate presented to its guests. Went for the $180 lunch set that is only available on Fridays,...More

The restaurant is located in the Marina Bay complex, but once you're seating at the table you could be anywhere else. We arrived some minutes before our reservation time so we had time to have a drink at the bar. The cocktail menu has some...More

One of the best fine dining in Singapore. Well deserved 2 michelin stars but definitely not a 3 star standard. Service and quality of food exceeded my expectation, fresh seafood. Food is a mix of Japanese and French. If you are in Singapore, this place...More

Went there for Christmas Eve dinner with family! A party of 6. Interesting food, exquisite service and one that I will remember is the main hall for the dessert and petit four. That earned a ‘wow’ factor!

Located on the the 2nd floor, with the entrance overlooking the casino, you need to access the restaurant via the loft near the casino entrance. You are initially placed in a non descript teppanyaki room, where the meal is described. We went for the lunch,...More

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo

Shinjii's service is way better then Waku Ghin. WG is overpriced for what you get. And Shinji is also a more authentic Japanese experience I would never return to WG. If Teppanyaki is what you like (which is what WG offers... More
