We made a reservation through our hotel about 6 weeks before our trip to Tokyo. I believe this is a requirement as a foreigner to the country is not allowed to book directly on their own. Upon our arrival, we were surprised at how quiet it was from the outside. We were ushered into the dining area which was really... More

My 5th time eating at Ryugin. Chef Siegei Yamamoto has earned a well deserved 3rd Michelin Star. Wonderful food. Beautiful presentations. Phenomenal service. A fantastic dining experience. Expensive but worth every penny.

Ryugin really stands out as one of the best modern "kaiseki" restaurants in Japan. Not only the food is top notch but it also comes impecably presented in beautiful japanese antique porcelain pieces worth of a collector. The sake is also served in a classic "kiriko" japanese glass, adding refinement to the taste of the delicate liquid. The sequence of... More

Wow, what an experience! Yes, it's pricey (about $300 per person), but this was by far the most beautiful food I’ve ever seen. The food presentation, plating, and service was impeccable. I had blowfish sashimi (fugu) for the first time. It was yummy – chewier than I had imagined. But great flavor. And I didn’t die! :) The restaurant itself... More

Subtile gentle flavours and beautiful presentation. My first 3 stared restaurant, it didnt disapoint. We took the sake pairing, and it was smashing. Some comunication problems and the service was a bit nervous and stiff, but i guess thats on us for not studying up on our japanese :) I would really recomend this restaurant to those who want something...
