Welcome to the Sho-dan Experience

Japanese concept restaurant

For authentic Japanese cuisine, Restaurant Sho-Dan welcomes you with outstanding freshness, incredible artistry and a long list of celebrity patrons since 1998!

Sho-Dan’s menu offers a perfect balance between intense and subtle flavours, artfully blending Japanese classics with original house specialties. Dishes such as lightly flambéed fresh yellow tail served with ponzu sauce and sesame seeds, or the Romeo and Juliette sushi roll featuring shrimp, blueberries, pineapple and strawberries will surely leave you wanting for more. There is a wide selection of à la carte dishes, many tending towards fusion cuisine, and the wine list offers excellent vintages to pair with Asian flavours.

Co-founder, co-owner and chef Chinh, a.k.a. Romeo is as much of an artist with food as he is on canvas: his artwork adorns Sho-Dan’s walls, adding to the allure.

Spacious yet warm, with high ceilings and decorated in warm tones, the dining room is suited for a business lunch as well as a night out with friends. Natural light floods in through impressive windows, while starched tablecloths and upholstered chairs provide a touch of elegance to an enjoyable dining experience. Click here to reserve your table.

The meaning of Sho-dan

The word “Sho-dan” has a double meaning in Japanese. The first meaning is “welcome home” and it also refers to the first degree black belt in martial arts. This perfectly captures Sho-dan’s philosophy: true excellence combined with the feeling of being welcomed home.
