Ronin sets a high standard for izakaya-style dining
Be sure to book early if you want to eat at this top-class East-meets-West venue
With no sign on the door, Ronin is an izakaya-style dining venue. It is a small, trendy restaurant with only 14 seats at a long wooden bar. The focus here is on fish, seafood and Japanese spirits, with more than 100 whisky varieties. The one-page menu varies daily, depending on the fresh ingredients available at the markets.
Dishes are divided into three sections – Raw, Smaller and Bigger – with signatures such as unagi, kinome, chirashi, rice featuring sushi, rice blended with kinome, sansho, and pickled cucumber slices, and topped with lightly-seared fillets of eel. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are also available. Reservations need to be made two weeks in advance.
