Inspired by Japan’s famous street taverns, where the beer is always cold and the food is full of flavour, Ikigai brings you authentic Asian cuisine with delicious twists.

Partnering with The First Group, chef and restaurateur Reif Othman’s new concept restaurant is “Japan on a plate” offering a menu inspired by the street-chic food of izakaya.

Ikigai is where friends come to reconnect over good Japanese soul food. If you need a pick-me-up after a long day or you’re catching up with friends on a chilled Saturday afternoon, our purpose is to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive…
