NAMA - JAPANESE RESTAURANT
A FINE DINING EXPERIENCE CELEBRATING JAPAN'S TRADITION OF CULINARY ARTISTRY

Soon to be a feature at a number of Aman destinations around the world, Nama follows Japan's Unesco-recognised tradition of washoku, a style of cuisine that elevates cooking to an art form that takes years to perfect. Under the guidance of Keiji Matoba, every Nama dish is imbued with a strong sense of its locale, focusing on the finest ingredients available nearby. At Amanpuri, this concept is brought alive with just-caught seafood from the waters surrounding Phuket, vibrant organic produce, and with specialist ingredients sourced direct from the markets of Osaka and Kyoto
 

MEANING 'RAW' IN JAPANESE, NAMA BRINGS THE CULINARY ART OF WASHOKU TO AMAN

Guided by the vision of master chef Keiji Matoba, the menu includes exquisitely crafted sashimi and sushi, prepared using techniques that bring essential flavours to the fore

 

RECOGNISED BY UNESCO AS A HERITAGE CUISINE, THE SECRET TO WASHOKU LIES IN SIMPLICITY

Though the process of washoku is complex, its purpose lies in bringing out the essence of each ingredient, combining the freshest flavours with ancient Japanese craftsmanship

 

MASTER CHEF KEIJI MATOBA HAS BLAZED A TRAIL WITH HIS UNIQUE METHODOLOGY

With a career spanning 21 years, Matoba has taken the art of washoku around the world – incorporating regional ingredients and international tastes with a mastery that has become his signature

 

EXQUISITE INTERIORS FEATURE NAMA Design signatures

Elaborate displays of ikebana, Japan's disciplined floral art form, give way to a restaurant furnished with rustic, earth-toned Japanese tableware – bespoke creations from the country's finest artisans

 

NAMA AT AMANPURI

While Phuket's tropical setting harnesses a cornucopia of ingredients, specialist produce is easily obtained direct from Japan so that dishes can be executed with genuine authenticity: sashimi, sushi and Wagyu beef are highlights of Nama's enticing menu
