On Wednesday and Saturday evenings, Momiji opens its doors for dinner, offering a unique and often playful menu that changes with each season. This season, the chefs have crafted an exquisite modern sushi Omakase menu that fuses familiar South African flavours with traditional Japanese techniques.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable culinary adventure, surrender your meal choices to the skilled chefs and enjoy their selection of curated dishes. Please note that due to the nature of the Omakase menu, Momiji cannot accommodate any changes or dietary requirements at this time.
