One Nice experience

Food and service was nice. Food served was too fast and rush. Do not like the beef as it comes with two big cube, unable to enjoy. Need change the ambience of the restaurant, is dull. Other then that, food and service is excellent. Value for money.

We arrived with the obvious high expectations to this restaurant. We, like all other guests I presume, had to go through a contract accepting their strict terms and conditions which upon reading them found them very amusing and started to feel honored that our booking was accepted. The chef/owner really needs to get back into reality however. Sorry to say... More

This was my second meal at Ryugin (the first one being almost one and a half year ago). We loved it so much that we wanted to return every time we return to Japan. While food was still amazing, what really disappointed us this time was the service and wine pairing. The most impressive thing about Ryugin (aside from their... More

A memorable and entertaining journey through the history of Japanese dining with a modern twist. Every single dish showed the ingredients at their absolute best and the intellectual thought behind each step was obvious. Service was friendly and informative but relaxed and the whole experience was fantastic. Yes it's expensive but worth every yen if you're a true student of... More

We arrived in time for the 10th anniversary of Ryugin, with a themed dinner. A series of dishes emerged showcasing the best of Japanese seasonal produce combined with traditional cooking techniques. It wasn't cheap but delicious, a unique experience, and in my opinion worth it!

Two and an half hour of great food and service. There were eleven dishes in total contrasting in all ways from sashimi to mushrooms, ice cream cold to sizzling hot, and soup and tea. The standout dishes were the Spanish mackerel and crab sashimi, Matsuba crab clear soup, and the sake souffle with ice cream. The service was amazing as... More

One of the best meals ever, with outstanding complexity and imagination and beautiful design. You need to fight to get a booking but it is absolutely worth it, to enjoy an amazing dinner. Every single item is great, with scallop dumpling, hot pot and hairy crab standing out of already top notch level. All is fresh, delicate and delicious. While... More

Food was above average but the fact that we managed to cop a bottle of juyondai (sake) made our dining experience so much better. Service staff were very professional and helpful, and their toilets were ridiculously well stocked with cotton buds, anti-hangover powder and whatnot. I would not place Ryugin at the top of my must-have list (in terms of... More
