IKURA Japanese Thomson Plaza is the newest outlet of IKURA which also has outlets in Fook Hai Building and East Village. The frontage of the restaurant with its display of red lanterns certainly looks impressive. It looks like a scene from a small lane in Shinjuku. IKURA has the dark, cosy character of a Japanese izakaya. The daily promotion and lunch sets look interesting.
