2 sittings – 6pm or 8pm
Shinya Nakano was born in Sakai, Osaka’s second largest city. Though his hometown has been known as the ‘City of Knives’ for over 600 years, Shinya did not relate his future with a kitchen knife until he moved to Kyoto. Here in the cultural capital of Japan, he started working in a sushi restaurant while pursuing his university studies in Sociology. On graduating, Shinya decided to commit to his passion of cooking and embarked on a 10-year stint in one of Kyoto’s century-old sushi restaurants “Idugen” to undertake austere classical training by his master.
Once he completed his training and work in Japan, Shinya decided to expand his culinary horizons and moved to Australia and became a sushi chef at Nobu Melbourne where he remained for 8 years. Shinya began to experiment with new and unlikely combinations of ingredients and was able to express boundless creativity unhindered by tradition and was able to develop his own unique style.
After a brief stint in Kisume in Melbourne, chef Shinya joined the Chairman Group and went all-out to bring the best of all he had developed to the Canberra food scene. Every dish reflects the polished traditional techniques he forged in Kyoto and the inspiration he draws from the diversity and colour of the Australian culinary landscape.

‘Omakase’ = ‘I’ll leave it up to you’
In Japanese Omakase dining, customers entrust their meal entirely to the Chef, who will select and serve a customised menu based on the best-in-market that day.
It is a highly intimate and personal dining experience, with the chefs serving the dishes to customers directly. The Chef will present a series of small plates, with the number of dishes varying with each service.
Mu Omakase offers fixed price menu options only, with drinks additional.
