Meanwhile, Honzen Bali seats 36 in its main dining hall, seven to nine in its teppanyaki rooms, and 11 at its sushi counter. Both Honzen Bali and Sumizen’s private rooms are built in the Japanese hanare style, and separated by small outdoor bridges. “The central courtyard of the sister restaurants resembles a zen garden, creating an ambiance that truly makes guests feel as if they are in Japan,” adds Chef Takumi.
Employing innovative techniques to express seasonality in its dishes, such as perennial favorites tempura and sushi, the Honzen Bali menu is crafted from the freshest seafood and ingredients imported from Japan or locally sourced from Bali.
For the ultimate Japanese dining experience, Sumizen and Honzen Bali offer seven to 12-course omakase menus that showcase the true creativity of Japanese dining culture and mastery of Chef Takumi and his team.
“With the sister restaurants Sumizen and Honzen Bali, we are inviting guests to experience the remarkable diversity of Japanese culinary traditions,” says Giordano Faggioli, General Manager of Ayana Bali.
“At these refined and dignified venues, guests will be immersed in the delicate nuances of an authentic Japanese dining experience,” he adds. “Together, they put Ayana Bali at the vanguard of Bali’s luxury Japanese restaurants.”
Sumizen and Honzen Bali will welcome guests from November 10, 2023, from 12:00 pm–02.30 pm for lunch and 06:00 pm–10:00 pm for dinner. To celebrate the opening, Sumizen and Honzen Bali are offering guests 30% off selected food and beverages (excluding alcohol) from November 10 to 17, 2023.
