The buzz: Owned by a group of friends with divergent but complementary tastes—one likes sushi, one likes beer and another adores vintage décor—Ikki must be doing something right as the place is packed out on a pretty regular basis. Make sure to drop by in November if you want to enjoy their 30% off soft opening deal.
The décor: If you take your décor seriously, then this could be the spot for you. With an atmosphere far removed from the typical wooden Japanese vibe, Ikki Ikki more resembles a wine bar. The setting is vintage meets industrial, with plenty of bricks, old knick-knacks hanging on the walls, a bare floor and hanging light bulbs at the sushi counter.
The food: The focus is squarely on sushi, so expect a brief menu listing a variety of different rolls. Besides the classics, the highly recommended option is the foie gras mango roll (B310). Otherwise, try the popular Matsusaka sushi (B360) or opt for the sushi set (B750/B1,750). There are also US-influenced rolls like dragon roll (B350) and salmon cream cheese roll (B400).
The drinks: We like the beer options here, with bottles of Sapporo (B130), Tsing Tao (B100) and Pure Blond (B120) available. They’re also going to serve draught Sapporo very soon. Wine by the glass ranges from B230-B350. Tea is B45.
The crowd: For now, some Thai families and groups of pretty ladies who are friends of the young owners.
