There’s also fresh baked breads, seafood on ice, and a DIY salad bar with organic greens.

Southeast Asian Inspired Dinner
For dinner, Portman’s Restaurant is taking a fusion route, namely with Mediterranean and Southeast Asian cuisine, borrowing from the backgrounds and influences of Executive Chef Chia Jue Xin and Executive Sous Chef Davide Mastrangeli.
Personally, I think the Southeast Asian influence is more apparent, which I’m inclined to like. Dishes like tom yum risotto and char siu pork ribs are the ones that call attention, but the Singapore chili crab spaghetti is the star. All three dishes are available in the Nomfluence set menus below, starting from ¥388 for four courses.
If you’re popping in for a quick, casual meal, dishes start at a very affordable ¥68, namely the Mee Goreng Mamak, fried noodles with chicken, prawns, eggs, and assorted vegetables.
Dinner is served daily from 5:30pm to 10:30pm. Save more than 40% when you purchase the sets below!
