The food was amazing and suited well for the season, fresh baked bread (baked infront of you) homemade butter and glorious seafood (not a fan of seafood) but it was cooked amazingly... More

WOW- Recently rated #2 restaurant in Asia, #1 in Tokyo, this restaurant was amazing! To us, it felt like a Japanese version of Eleven Madison Park. Stark, crisp lines and amazing service. Food was so creative and beautifully plated. We came for lunch and it was wonderful! A must try in Tokyo.

One of the best meals we've ever eaten. From start to finish the whole experience was above and beyond most meals we will get. The room was excellent, the service impeccable, our table was in the perfect place and then the food and wine started to arrive. We went for lunch and had the tasting menu with wine pairing. This...

Ranked as the second best restaurant in the whole Asia and the number one in Japan, the Narisawa makes even earned all the hype. The tasting menu is just phenomenal. From the leavened bread on the table itself, through the delicious and famous "fugu", langoustine, oysters, exotic fish, crispy pig at the grand finale with the perfect barbary duck, the... More

Presentation of the dishes created lots of "WOW" but taste was average. Except the Hostesses (they were cold and seems impatient, especially when you would like to get back something from your jacket that they just left on the Hostess podium), service was attentive and personalize (if you don't mind they explain all the ingredients in details, just like attending...

Here is a wonderful restaurant with a strong focus on the natural environment of Japan. A winter walk in the forest theme was highly evocative and the food that followed this theme was beautifully executed with the usual Japanese precision. BUT, here is the paradox. With all this homage to Japan the beverage list is virtually all French wines. Very... More
