Sushi Sei, the latest culinary venture by owner and chef Hideaki Fukada and co-owners Kenny Lee and Danny Hwang, has officially opened its doors at Darling Square. This innovative dining concept differentiates itself from Kuon Group’s existing establishments, such as Irori Kuon, Kuon Omakase, and Izakaya Tempura Kuon.

Diverging from Lee’s previous venues, Sushi Sei introduces a different dining experience, making the art of omakase accessible to all. This casual yet immersive setting encourages guests to interact with the skilled sushi chefs while seated at the high bar, providing a firsthand view of the precision and craftsmanship that goes into each sushi creation and dish.

Sushi Sei stands out by allowing guests to curate their dining adventures. With a minimum spend of $40 per person, the a la carte sushi selection ranges from $4 to $12 per piece. Diners can select precisely what they desire, indulging in their favourite sushi creations as often as they wish. The flexible dining options also cater to those who want to experience the entire omakase journey or choose a la carte selections.
