A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
Spacious and light-filled with lofty ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and panoramic ocean views, this signature Aman restaurant serves authentic Japanese washoku cuisine, considered an intangible national heritage by Unesco. Open for dinner, with exceptional sushi and sashimi at the heart of its menu, Nama also offers a range of premium sake and Amanzoe’s extensive wine selection.
Meaning ‘raw’ in Japanese, Nama offers simple yet sophisticated dishes true to the age-old preparation techniques of the Japanese kitchen. Every Nama dish is imbued with a strong sense of its locale, focusing on the finest ingredients available nearby.
A vast array of vibrant organic produce is sourced from local farmers, fishermen and boutique suppliers of seasonal delicacies. From cheese and wine to honey, herbs, olives and seafood, Nama’s chefs have their pick of the finest local ingredients.
Traditional ingredients from trusted niche suppliers in Japan are key to Nama’s authenticity. Premium Wagyu beef as well as the finest soy sauce, mirin, rice wine vinegar and Aman’s own Tokyo-distilled sake are flown in from Japan’s most respected suppliers to craft delicious sushi and washoku dishes.
