REVIEW

Inagiku

Let's get the negatives out of the way first: Inagiku is an expensive (many would say over-priced) restaurant in IFC Mall that offers small-portioned and for the most part just average Japanese cuisine about which the servers are not particular knowledgeable (when I asked mine if the chawanmushi in front of me was chawanmushi, she looked at me like I was crazy and said "no, it's steamed egg custard"). However, the restaurant has a beautiful sleek design, stunning views and certain dishes, in particular the tempura, are really outstanding.

The restaurant has three separate counters, in addition to table seating: a sushi counter, teppanyaki counter and tempura counter. The light tempura is the house specialty, made with a sesame oil blend imported from Japan. I was impressed with the prawn and crunchy prawn heads, seasonal fish, and vegetables that accompanied the "tempura kaiseki" menu, but most of all by the "mini tempura rice", which contained an assortment of items battered together on top of fluffy rice. Some of the other subcategories were less successful: the sushi and sashimi was served excessively cold and many of the Kaiseki dishes were uninspired. Inagiku makes sense for a business meal if you are staying at the Four Seasons or working at IFC; however, if you are looking for first-rate sushi or Kaiseki, Sushi Shikon and Sushi Ta-ke, and Wagyu Kaiseki Den and Ryu Gin, respectively, are better options.
