Mu Explained


‘Omakase’: from the Japanese ‘to entrust’ (任せる, makaseru). Translates to ‘leave it up to you’.


The essence of Omakase is placing trust in the expertise of the professionals who are serving you to provide the best possible pairings for you. In Omakase dining, the customer leaves it up to the restaurant to select and serve whatever dishes they consider best on the day for them. Omakase is not exclusive to sushi and is common across all types of restaurants, bars and stores, from neighbourhood diners to fine dining, to wine bars and cocktail bars.

In Western countries, we often associate this Omakase with sushi dining experiences where you are served by the chef. However, Omakase is not limited to the chef preparing food in front of you at the counter and serving you personally – this style of service is known as ‘Itamae’ and is just one type of Omakase dining.


At Mu, we curate our menu based on seasonality and quality of ingredients, and diners are presented with a series of plates in a tasting menu style, moving from lighter fare to heavier courses. Please ask us about our Omakase sake and wine pairings as well.
