The Ikoi restaurant is situated in the lobby of the Miramar hotel in downtown Singapore. I went with some friends of mine who had been before which not having eaten Japanese food before was a little reassuring. However when we arrived and eventually got a seat (it was absolutely stacked) the waitress very kindly took over and ordered for us. She bought beautifully prepared raw fish. Soup, chicken, cooked fish, bacon, tempura prawns etc, etc served with a variety of sauces, mustard and vinegar accompanied by green tea and I can honestly say I was more than surprised by just how much I enjoyed my first Japanese food eating experience. Very tasty, very satisfying and very different.
