Teppan Kaiseki Satsuki

Duxton Hill is no stranger to Japanese restaurants, but among them is the special fine dining delight of Satsuki. The beautiful space is devoted to an inventive mix of teppanyaki and kaiseki, exemplified in the crafstmanship of French-trained chef Motomatsu Takashi. The cooking methods and even the crockery are a blend of French and Japanese. The action takes place behind the 13-seat counter—made from a single piece of ash wood—where the chef and his cooks make serve up three choices of set menus: the Mochizuki omakase course, comprising up to 10 dishes, and the slightly lighter Gengetsu, with fewer dishes but a bigger focus on Teppan kushiyaki. There is a great selection of sake, wine and Japanese whisky to wash it all down with as well.
