Several people have described Sense as the best Chinese food in Tokyo. Well they clearly know nothing about Chinese food or nothing about Tokyo, possibly both. Views from the restaurant are breath taking. Sadly the same can not be said for either the food or the service, Whilst the food which I chose to order was good, but not outstanding,... More

While we were staying in Tokyo, I booked us a table for lunch at Sense located in the fabulous Mandarin Oriental hotel. I am a huge Dim Sum fan and I didn't want to miss the chance to taste Michelin starred yummy parcels of food. We were greeted with big smiles when we arrived and got taken to a lovely... More

The food was good at best; our main issue was the whole dining experience does not represent value for money in any way. We had a lot of excellent meals in our two weeks in Japan, some expensive some cheap. This was the only one we felt disgruntled paying for. We ordered fairly frugally and in return our waiter lost...

If you want the best Chinese food in Tokyo, this is the place. Go on the weekends when they have dim sum, its made to order. The regular menu is pretty amazing and the Peking Duck is the best that I have ever had including the famous Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong

This elegant and sophisticated restaurant serves excellent Cantonese food and the dinner we enjoyed was one of, and possibly the , finest Chinese meal I've ever eaten ( including in several other Michelin starred establishments).The service is impeccable and charming and the views from the 37th floor are breathtaking . I'd also commend the sommelier's wine recommendations and we enjoyed... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
