We had a Chinese waitress explain every dish to us in detail, from the source of the ingredients to what sauce to put on what food. Thus it made the dinner seem extra special and memorable. To be honest we have been eating so much hamo (king eel) and ayu for the past 3 days in Osaka and Kyoto, but... More

This was a decent meal, but I don't really see how this is three Michelin-starred and 29th best restaurant in the world? I understand the chef is revered by his peers so perhaps some of his techniques went over our laymen heads. Ultimately all I have to judge my opinion on is how much I enjoyed the food and experience.... More

A shame that a once great place has lost its soul and starts to do fake Kaiseki for non Japanese, the chef does not even have the guts to listen and the staff does not care, how can Michelin give ant stars at all- it is a shamr

Booked dinner more than a month ago. The service and food were both of top quality. Despite the Japanese setting, the dishes were with a modern taste. There was only one set menu and guess the menu changes from time to time according to the season, but the sashimi and beef will always be delightful. Other dishes were also served... More

Food is a delightful adventure - brilliantly blended flavours and textures and colours - a symphony of experiences in small beautiful dishes made from finest porcelain through to rough hewn pottery reflecting the food and its source in nature. We loved the dish with what looked like the Harbour bridge on it - a lovely touch as we come from... More

One of my best dinner ever. Maximum quality and maximum service for one of the best traditional (but original at the same time) Japanese restaurant. The waitress in chief (manager) is an authentic phenomenon and she will describe every dish (16 traditional course menu) you will eat. To try absolutely, very expensive 30,000 yen wine included each.

Along with Sukiyabashi Jiro, Ryugin is a must-see in Tokyo. Kaiseki cuisine at this restaurant reaches the highest level possible. The restaurant is small and the tables rather close. The service is excellent, elegant and helpful. The food is a synthesis of extremely refined Japanese taste and Western techniques, as the molecular cuisine. Sea Urchins with fried alga nori and...

By far , a heavy weight in the game , by all accounts it truly earns its 3* Michelin Every dish is a lesson , it's simple yet complex, The chef respects his ingredients and it respects him back Everything is sourced with premium selection , it is an unforgettable and yet to be challenged experience I'll do more injustice...
