Ginza restaurant in Makati
While most of us enjoy a traditional Japanese restaurant that’s always out in the open and easily accessible, sometimes, unique and mysterious hidden restaurants can be exciting and thrilling too.
Go to Ginza in Makati if you like eating Japanese food, looking around luxury furniture, and dining at hidden restaurants around Metro Manila.

While most restaurants are exposed for everyone to see, you may need your observation skills in finding this one. Ginza is a hidden izakaya (type of Japanese bar) in a furniture store called Fashion Interiors.

Outside, you can hardly see the location as it’s surrounded by warehouses. Upon finding and entering the restaurant, the setup looks as if it were a normal furniture store – with plush cushions and artificial greenery – that you would easily pass through without finding the izakaya entrance, so be sure to keep a look out for staff who can lead you straight to the restaurant.
Variety of Japanese dishes

For heavier meals, try out their noodle and rice dishes such as the Ginza Sumiyaki Udon for P580 (~USD11.07) and the Kaisen Kamameshi for P530 (~USD10.12).
Or if you want to try a bit of everything, order a bento box such as the Tonkatsu Bento (P800, ~USD15.27) for a classic or the Wagyu Teppanyaki Bento (P2,500 ~USD47.71) for an indulgent meal.

Feel free to look around the showcased furniture, in which some are Filipino-made. It’s also a good way to pass the time while you wait for your food to be served at the table.
