We had dinner at Ryugin in HK for 2x. This time while we were in Tokyo, we wanted to try the original Ryugin, tucked in a little corner in Roppongi. The experience was indeed sublime. Each course was superbly executed, and exceeded expectations (bear in kind that we had high expectations already, having tried Ryugin in HK). Great food, in... More

The entrance to Ryugin was well marked and easy to find. Handsome looking entrance and austere dining room. Service was a little stiff but nothing too uncomfortable. There was 1 person in charge of English speaking tables, another for Chinese so language should not be an issue. The food was well executed, but unfortunately a little uninspired. The highlight of...

Ryugin was our last supper in Japan. After our mediocre experience at Narisawa, we did not have any expectation for Ryugin. We even almost cancelled our reservation, especially after finding out that Ryugin was serving kaiseki. We’ve had four kaiseki so far during our trip, and we were getting bored of eating the same ingredients. Thanks to Ryugin’s cancellation policy... More

Ryugin came highly recommended. After listening to my close friend wax lyrical about the food, i just had to try for myself. Getting a reservation was difficult, but with the help of an expat friend with a little know-how we managed to snag one. The dining area was darkly lit, and a mix of Japanese and ?Korean clientele filled the... More

After hearing a lot of interesting things about this restaurant I wanted to like it more than I actually did. It definitely had the feel of a three star Michelin restaurant, but the food missed the mark for me. I can definitely appreciate what Chef Yamamoto was striving for in terms of his modern take on authentic Japanese dishes, but... More

Somewhere along the way, I developed this silly infatuation with the San Pelligrino Top Restaurants list, which manages to include some great places (Le Bernardin) and some that downright average (Le Chateaubriand). The chief criteria seems to be multi-course menus and very high prices. Ryugin checks both of these boxes. Here are some things to note before you go here.... More

Many past reviewers have provided the details of dining here so I'll just write about what made this a stellar experience for us. Service was outstanding - subtle, professional but friendly & our waiter had an amazing winning smile. All our dishes were innovative, beautifully presented & followed the theme of our set menu which is all explained in our... More

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.
