Omotenashi. This is Japanese for hospitality. “Omote” means public face that is an image one would wish to present when outside the confines of his or her home, and “Nashi” means nothing. Combining them creates a wonderful combination that means every service is from the bottom of the heart -- honest, no hiding, no pretentions.  We all see this kind of Japanese hospitality in videos posted on social media and we are all left in awe. Wouldn’t it be wondrous to experience that here in Manila too?
81 Seihai Sushi Lounge, located along Timog Avenue, Quezon City will open April 2018. This is new fusion Japanese restaurant features its version of Omotenashi in an ambiance of non-obtrusive music, homey and comfortable but like a VIP with usual greetings of “irasshaimase” or “ohayo gozaimasu”. You'll feel the hospitality of the staff and crew of 81 Seihai Sushi Lounge. 

According to Restaurateur and 81 SEIHAI Executive Chef Ronnie DeGuzman, he believes that hospitality in the form of respect should be practiced by real, honest-to-goodness Sushi Chefs everywhere. He mentions one of his philosophies which is, “Fish die with honor and must be served with honor”.  Something as simple as preparing sushi with utmost precision, passion, and heart can make a world of difference in one’s dining experience.

“I want to bring good food here and I aim to introduce a standardized way of preparation and service. Everything else will follow. I can see that Japanese cuisine is becoming popular and I want to add to it but in an innovative way,” he quips. 

His art goes beyond the gastronomic, awesome fusion sushi dishes he prepares.  81 SEIHAI is truly reflective of who Chef Ronnie DeGuzman is by way of the ambiance of the restaurant. With murals painted by hand by artist/photographer Mandy Martinez, under the directives of Chef Ronnie, 81 SEIHAI truly is a sight to behold, with every corner picture worthy enough for anyone to want to post their photos online.

The pipe-in music transforms into a hotspot with live musicians and DJs on some weekday evenings. Hard drinks with fusion Japanese style "pulutan" are served. So swing by 81 SEIHAI when it opens in April and enjoy affordable, authentic Japanese cuisines.

Office workers can swing by to have their lunch here because of its affordability, without sacrificing quality.  Families will enjoy and create new memories here while young professionals can enjoy the evenings as they unwind, relax, eat and drink to good music.

So, don’t forget to put it in your to-do list and experience 81 SEIHAI when it opens on April!
