makes memorable places


Situated in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Susoshu is a Japanese restaurant that offers sushi (su), plain soba noodles (so), and Nihonshu (shu). The interior captures the homey atmosphere of traditional Japanese izakaya while bringing in modernist elements into the space to create a rejuvenating and refreshing ambiance. 

The focal point of Susoshu’s interior is the polygonal bar table handcrafted by a local Hong Kong carpenter. The ceiling in the bar area is clad in Japanese rattan and oak wood,aligning the shape of the bar table below. Two custom-made fridges with horizontal glass openings are purposely attached along with the bar table, allowing customers to look at the fresh ingredients and get their mouth watering when the chef is preparing food.

The walls on the other side are decorated with a series of artwork composed of geometric shapes and bold colors, featuring the three signature cuisines of the restaurant. The pattern on the door curtain is also designed and sewn by the designer, adding more fun and uniqueness to the space. Also worth noting is that the hanging wooden menu that can be found in most Japanese izakaya has been redesigned with unpolished metal to echo the reflective steel display shelf at the back of the counter.
