298 Nikuya Kitchen
Japanese Dining Restaurant
Energetic, powerful and the good old days. The design image of 298 Nikuya Kitchen TST was inspired by American Diner back in 1950s.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
298 Nikuya Kitchen TST is Japanese BBQ restaurant which was relocated from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
The overall design of the space was inspired by American Diner, such as black and white patterned tiles, white metro tile and light bulb messages. In addition, we mixed different design elements like industrial chic partition, big mirror ball pendant lights which feel back in 1970s and so on. We create the space which is something new and a bit different from the former Japanese BBQ restaurant design.

Japanese style design is simple and natural, as they say. Especially outside Japan, these design is very popular to see at its food space. Our challenge is to break away from the stereotyped image of Japanese restaurant which was located in a foreign country.
