Come in to experience Shiki’s award-winning authentic Japanese cuisine in the heart of Adelaide. Observe the skill and talent of Kenny Trinh, the Chef de Cuisine, as he and his team create delicious and succulent dishes through their culinary mastery. Shiki’s professional chefs and world-class service offer an incredible experience to remember for all guests, combining seasonal produce with its amazing Japanese sushi and sashimi, tempura and teppanyaki. The menu contains a wide variety of a la carte options while providing patrons with a host of authentic teppanyaki dishes in Japanese style, ensuring that you get the meal that you want no matter what your tastes.


Shiki is a special occasion restaurant. If you do not have one to celebrate when you arrive, you most certainly will have had one by the time you leave. The teppanyaki cooking is special, and not to be missed. Staged within a mini culinary arena, ten of your nearest and hungriest are seated around a gleaming, smoking hotplate, manned by your personal chef. The flashing and slashing of his steely knives are sure to make you sit up straight with attention. Other commanding views are those through the expansive room's picture windows, looking down over Adelaide's River Torrens.

If you prefer a more intimate experience of this famed restaurant, there are tables for a-la-carte dining, and a dedicated tempura bar for some lightly-fried fun. Speaking of fun - and fame - take time to check out with whom you might be sharing your sushi. As a hotel home to touring artists, some diners have spotted Aussie rockers Acca Dacca sucking on sake and Delta Goodrem delicately nibbling nori nearby.

The thought of sublime food is what draws an eclectic and appreciative crowd to Shiki. In 2011, the Restaurant and Catering Association of SA inducted it into its Hall of Fame. The menu is a roll call of this country's finest produce. From local waters come Port Lincoln blue fin tuna, Kangaroo Island lobster, Coffin Bay oysters, York Peninsula King George whiting and Cape Jervis squid. From Queensland, soft shell crabs, barramundi, crocodile, tiger prawns and Hervey Bay scallops. Moreton Bay bugs and Tasmanian Atlantic salmon practically leave no box un-ticked on the seafood front. From local land we see Mt Gambier beef, Broken Hill kangaroo, Hay Valley lamb and Clare Valley chicken. Wagyu is sourced from Darling Downs. This quality produce is fashioned into sushi and sashimi, or cooked teppanyaki and tempura style. Prepare to have your palate pampered among subtle spotlights, Japanese ceramics, and artful samurai pieces.
