Flavours of Japan

Nama is open for lunch and dinner to both resort guests and non-residents between December and April.

The art of washoku

Meaning 'raw' in Japanese, Nama follows Japan's Unesco-recognised tradition of washoku, a style of cuisine that elevates cooking to an art form, often taking years for chefs to perfect. Exquisitely crafted sushi and sashimi are at the heart of a menu that celebrates the finest seasonal ingredients, prepared using techniques that bring essential flavours to the fore.

Beauty in simplicity

The secret to washoku lies in the chef’s understanding of an ingredient and how to isolate and amplify the essence of each component of the dish, resulting in beautifully clean and balanced flavours on every plate. Though the process of preparation can be highly complex, washoku is at heart a celebration of simplicity.

A sense of place

Although specialist produce is easily obtained direct from the markets of Osaka and Kyoto so that dishes can be crafted with absolute authenticity: Phuket's tropical setting offers Nama’s chefs a cornucopia of exceptional ingredients on the doorstep, sharing space on the menu with Japanese delicacies such as chargrilled Wagyu beef.
