Chef Taro Takayama 

Chef Taro Takayama is a native of Wakayama, near Osaka, home to extraordinary scenic beauty and some of Japan’s best ramen. There, his passion for Japanese cuisine took root and the comforting taste of childhood dishes remained deeply etched in his memory. Chef Taro began his career at three-star Michelin restaurants in Osaka, namely Kashiwaya in Senriyama, and Koryu in Kitashinchi. In 2013, a mere eight years since deciding to pursue his culinary calling, he was appointed Master Chef at the residence of the Japanese Ambassador to Singapore. This coveted position saw him serve creations to celebrities and dignitaries, including Japan’s Crown Prince Naruhito and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Having developed a deep appreciation for Singapore’s cultural diversity and local cuisine, Chef Taro stayed in Singapore and became Chef de Cuisine at Mandarin Orchard Singapore. At Takayama, he continues to delight diners with his culinary artisanry that celebrates the authentic flavours and meticulous simplicity of Japanese food at its finest.


Takayama is an intimate epicurean encounter steeped in the tradition of fine Japanese cuisine. At the heart of dining at Takayama is the spirit of omotenashi, or wholehearted Japanese hospitality, graciously delivered in the elegant ambience of this exclusive kappo-style restaurant cocooned in the midst of Singapore’s Central Business District. Takayama’s main dining room features two counters for six and five guests, respectively, as well as tables that seats two and four guests. In addition, guests can enjoy the exclusivity of two private dining rooms, for four and eight guests, respectively.
