Welcome to Indigo!

Established in 2017, we are located in Berawa-Canggu, south region of Bali. In a warm and inviting environment, we offer chic contemporary Japanese fusion, with a slight of European influence, for those desiring to experience the artistry of Nippon culinary philosophy.

The key to our fare is fresh ingredients, which means our fish is day-to-day delivered. Our sushi and maki tastes just as good as they look, with each plate more beautiful than the last and bursting with an exciting variety of colours, flavours and textures. Whether you prefer a classic sushi selection or you’re in the mood to try something a bit more innovative, like our New Style Sashimi or the sublime Yakimono dishes cooked over the charcoal grill, we’re sure to have something to satisfy your craving.

Feel the Balinese hospitality of our service team, the pride of our Itamaes (sushi chefs) and the passion of chef de cuisine, Morita Shigehiko-shi.

Chef Morita Shigehiko

Chef Shige is born in Hino, a village on the shores of Lake Biwa in Shiga prefecture, where the famous Omigyu beef id produced. Like many, his first approach to cooking was at home with his family. “My mum always cooked traditional Japanese dishes which help me develop my taste and my passion. I always wanted to help her as a child. I watched numerous cooking shows on TV and replicated, twisted recipes with the help of my mother. I just like cooking, especially vegetables” says Chef Shige. After his graduation from Taiwa Incorporation Culinary Institute in Kyoto, Morita worked for several restaurants, from Japanese to Chinese, French to Italian cuisine, to develop his cooking skills. His enthusiasm for fusion cuisine came after dining at Chef Sasajima’s “Il Ghiottone”, the pioneer of Kyoto-Italian fusion. “Following this eye-opener dinner, I tried to work there but because there wasn't any opportunity at that time, I joined “Chimera” owned by Chef Tsutsui, also doing an ingenious fusion cuisine”. After 2 years Shige was promoted Second in command, contributing greatly to acquire the first Michelin Star for a restaurant in Kyoto’s. “This open the door to enter Chef Sasajima’s team and fulfil my dream.”

Innovative with a traditional approach, Morita’s philosophy is to extract the ingredient’s flavour to its optimum, highlighting the natural essence of the produce with a minimum of elements to accommodate it. “Less is more, that’s why my favourite technique is Charcoal grill” he says. It gives a slight hint of charcoal scent, a delicate crispiness and keep the moist and flavor intact. Try my Charcoal Chicken and/or the Black Cod, you’ll see what I’m talking about.”

The Ambience

The interior is a blend of Japanese architecture, Balinese material and French savoir-faire, reflecting the sense of purity and details of Japan, the nobleness of Bali’s raw material, expressing a certain zenitude through earth tones, indigo dye fabrics and exposed red brick walls. Planned inside out, the intention of our French architect & interior designer is to offer a warm and homey feel in a minimalist and refined interior. Original Shoji inspired glass doors made out of timeworn teak, traditional shibori patchwork ceiling created by a local artist, the serene Indigo colour on denim cushions, the elegant handmade stone floor, and the Italian marble table top for a soupçon of modernity, creating a harmonious and feel-good atmosphere, matching flawlessly our cuisine.
