Behind an unmarked door, hidden on an anonymous grey wall, lies Ronin, a “dining bar” inspired by all things Japanese and from the sea.
Situated in Sheung Wan, this exclusive 14-seat (+ standing room) shoe box of a restaurant delivers a top-shelf, sushi-esque experience sharper than a samurai blade. Brought to you by the same folks who launched Yardbird and Sunday’s Grocery, Ronin doesn’t disappoint when it comes to quality, service and presentation. Delicate, balance, subtlety. . . these are the words that come to mind in describing this Poseidon adventure. So many highlights to choose from, but when in doubt, FLOWER CRAB WITH UNI, TEMPURA KISU and the KAGOSHIMA BEEF + EGG YOLK will satisfy along with the fresh oysters and sashimi selections available. The chef’s choice or OMAKASE will fulfill your lustful seafood crush if you’re wearing pants with deep pockets of course.
Ronin accepts reservations up to 2 weeks in advance for the bar seats, and walk-ins for the standing counter. With low lights and warm vibes, this is a great place for an intimate rendezvous or the smallest group of friends (like 2) – leave the entourage at home for this one.
