Food Philosophy 

An intimate dining experience

In an intimate 10-seat restaurant set inside the entrance to Nobu, Yoshii’s Omakase at Nobu is designed to create a unique dining take on the Omakase tradition.

Derived from a Japanese phrase meaning "I'll leave it up to you,” the culinary experience will leave all decision-making in the hands of Chef Yoshii. Diners are still engaged in the cooking process, with Chef Yoshii preparing their meal in front of them in an intimate and personal setting. 

Sushi master, Ryuichi Yoshii

Ryuichi Yoshii is a second-generation Japanese Sushi Master, with his work in that area considered the benchmark in Australia. Born in Nagasaki, a suburban town near Fukuoka in the south of Japan, Yoshii learned the art of Japanese cuisine from his Sushi Chef father at a young age.

The mix of exotic cultures and diversity of food in Nagasaki inspired his open-minded, experimental approach to cooking. Now Yoshii is as well known for his amazing knife skills as he is for his clever and thoughtful combinations of unexpected ingredients.

Sydneysiders may know Chef Yoshii from his former roles as head chef of Shiki Japanese Restaurant, followed by Yoshii Restaurant, and then Barangaroo fine-diner, Fujisaki.

His dream of owning his own restaurant finally came to fruition in 1997 in prominent Darling Harbour, Sydney. Yoshii’s skill and reputation went from strength to strength and in 2002, Yoshii moved his restaurant to Sydney’s up market The Rocks, where his popular seasonal menu became even more refined.

Yoshii’s concept that food and wine should complement each other to create the ultimate experience is reflected in his menus and pairings. Yoshii’s reputation is far reaching with several international TV cooking show appearances and he also became a regular character in Oishinbo, a popular Japanese ‘grown up’ comic book focusing on food. In recent years, Yoshii has showcased his signature dishes and knife skills in front of hundreds of foodies and critics at summits, shows and festivals all over the world.
