Zipang is an archaic Japanese name for "Island of Gold".
This is a restaurant that offers an exquisite palette of authentic Japanese cuisine by their chefs who hail from Japan. It was part of the clients' goal in wanting to offer a modern and mouthwatering Japanese dining experience in a relaxed yet classy setting.
To provide a cosy, warm yet contemporary setting, we got adventurous in trying different materials we have sourced and customized ourselves. We used a natural and rustic palette with materials like marble, wood and granite. To emphasise the idea of a gold island, we also experimented with a handpainted gold-leaf effect wall.
