Widely regarded as one of Adelaide’s leading Japanese dining experiences, the multi-award winning Shiki first opened its doors in 1988. It immediately climbed straight to the top of the culinary success ladder, maintaining its reputation as a favourite decades later.
Located on the Upper Lobby level of InterContinental Adelaide, Shiki translates to ‘four seasons’ in Japanese. Its mission is to demonstrate and share the art of teppanyaki cuisine using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients, as it strives to incorporate sustainable dining into its menu options.
Chef, Kenny Trinh, has been with Shiki since starting as a kitchen hand in 1989. He worked his way up and has been guiding the culinary team at Shiki as Chef de Cuisine since 2003. His commitment to the industry and his keenness to keep in touch with changing dining trends and customer preferences has seen him undertake a large amount of cross exposure training. He has also learnt new techniques and experimented with different flavours working with one of Melbourne’s leading Japanese chefs, Master Chef Orita Kikaru.
Renowned for its Japanese tempura, sushi and teppanyaki, Shiki combines the best seasonal produce with a talented team of chefs and five-star service to produce the finest authentic Japanese cuisine.
You can choose from a variety of set menus or dine a la carte. Start with a serve of California rolls, some nigiri sushi and mixed maki sushi before moving onto a selection of appetisers. Choose from the seared Mt Gambier beef tataki with grated chilli radish and ponzu sauce, or fried prawn with buckwheat noodles rolled served with a creamy miso.
Many of Shiki’s chefs have specialised in the art of teppanyaki cooking – a style of Japanese cuisine using a very hot iron plate on which to cook. Sit around the teppanyaki grills and be entertained by the professionalism and showmanship of the chefs. Watch the chopping, flaming and sizzling the freshest of ingredients, be it Yorke Peninsula King George whiting, Mt Gambier beef tenderloin steak, or Clare Valley chicken. Each dish is plated with theatre and culinary mastery.
Complete your dining experience with one of the delicious dessert options. Choose from the passionfruit and azuki bean crème brûlée, or tempura ice cream served with Japanese plum wine sauce.
The dishes are not just Japanese inspired, but rather authentic meals with traditional and contemporary Japanese cooking methods. This combination produces distinctive flavours that highlight Shiki’s creative and innovative approach to Japanese cuisine.
The wine list is extensive showcasing some of the best Australian wines with a focus on complementing the Japanese cuisine. Guests are encouraged to enjoy wines ranging from a crisp Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc to a full bodied Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon. There is also a great choice of sake from various regions of Japan.
Shiki’s professional chefs and award-winning Japanese cuisine and world class service ensure a memorable dining experience for all guests.
