“Hold the rice as you would hold a lovers hand”, a sushi maestro once told me, for the vinegared rice and not the fish, is the real star in sushi. You know you are in good hands when you shake them with Chef Katayama’s. Since it was a much publicised opening in May last year, Sora Jima has made its mark in a city where Japanese cuisine is quite conspicuous. It lives up to its name (which means an island in the sky), with panoramic views of the city - The silk & gold behemoths of T Nagar glittering in the night sky, as the GN Chetty road snakes underneath. Pity, that the only outdoor seating is a couple of tables for the smokers.
We had business dinner at Sora Jima. It's located in Accord Hotel. Best time to visit after 7pm. We had several Japanese food. I liked most are Tempura , sushi🍣 and noodles at Sora Jima.
We had Japanese and Chinese food at this restaurant. All the food was delicious and tasty. It was well presented. The chef even came to ask if everything was to our satisfaction.
very nice and satisfying meal. Authentic Japanese food which hits all the right spots. Must go for a all the Sushi lovers
About the most authentic japanese food you can find in Chennai. Everything was good. The only thing they fell short on was a good selection of sake. That would have raised my score to perfect! Service was also excellent, the chef personally explained some of the dishes and gave suggestions. The waiting staff were prompt and on their toes. we didnt have to go searching for them even though we were in a cubicle. Ambience was very nice and Japanese. Lots of wood and quiet.
The food was awesome. The resto belongs to the Accord Metropolitan hotel. This is one of the best restaurants in Chennai.
Do you have any idea how much skill and finesse it takes to prepare Japanese cuisine? A chef has to be really accomplished with knives and have nimble fingers to achieve what a traditional Japanese chef do. Which is the precise reason why there are so few regional Japanese chefs. Japanese cuisine is a cuisine based on the natural flavours of the ingredients. It greatly believes in keeping the integrity of the produce and treating it right. They respect the ingredient and try to make the best of it. Chennai may not have a very active Japanese sector but for those who are an avid enthusiast of this cuisine often end up eating at ‘Sora Jima’. The name is synonymous with Japanese cuisine in Chennai and made its mark fairly soon after it’s much anticipated opening. Sora Jima manages to cater to the refined well-travelled tastes of the local foodies.
The name Sora Jima means ‘an island in the sky’, a suggestion proven right when you take in their spectacular location. The restaurant is placed in the very trendy corner of T. Nagar and housed in posh The Accord Metropolitan Hotel. Perched on the top floor of the hotel, the restaurant overlooks a magnificent view of the city so it will be wise to pick a window side table. Few outdoor tables are added for the smokers which is a pity, as they have a gorgeous view. Furnishings of Sora Jima are well picked. Interiors are elegant and very tastefully designed. One feels quite at home dining here. Décor has a distinct modern touch which pulls the restaurant from being too monotonous. If you require some privacy, ask to be seated in their private dining area.
Sora Jima practises an authentic Japanese menu. Chef Katayama is known to serve the best sushi in town so definitely indulge in that. When dining here, forget your wallet and just give in to their superb cooking. It might be expensive but it’s equally satisfying too. Ask the chef for recommendations. Who would tell you better? Begin with, prawn tempura, tofu clear soup, chicken tikka sushi, spicy mushroom sushi, spicy finger teriyaki chicken, baby corn bezule sushi and chicken wafu steak. Main course impresses you with, Japanese chicken biryani, curry leaf happosai, mutton mabo tofu, spicy wasabi noodles, seer fish with allepey dashi and grilled prawns with wasabi sauce. Bring this wonderful blend of two cultures on a sweet note with green tea crème brulee or maccha ice cream with lychee.
