Our Philosophy

TokyoLima is a late-night restaurant and bar serving Nikkei cuisine in the atmosphere of a buzzing izakaya*. Tucked away on Lyndhurst Terrace, TokyoLima invites you to escape and lose track of time with great drinks, food and company.  Stop by for a lesson in sake, a relaxed bite at our open kitchen counter or let chef Arturo surprise you with his ‘Feed Me’ Tasting Menu.

Bringing a casual approach to Nikkei cuisine, Peruvian Chef Arturo serves up a menu that balances the heat of Peru with the delicate flavours of Japan. Dating back over 100 years, Nikkei cuisine originates from Peru’s large Japanese population and is best described as the melding of both cultures. Like a match made in heaven, Nikkei brings together Japan’s love for fresh seafood and fresh, delicate flavours with the punchy heat and colourful zest of Peru.

Discover something new in our drinks menu with our carefully hand-selected sake menu of over twenty varieties – designed to put the fun back into Japan’s national spirit. Drawing inspiration from Nikkei elements, our cocktails infuse South American and Japanese ingredients with daring combinations and intriguing flavours.

* Izakayas are Japan’s famous drinking spots, where everyone is welcome under one roof to drink, eat, relax and let loose.
