Good food, book a Teppanyaki table

We appreciated very much the quality of the Japanese food. On the other hand we did not like the cold welcome by the German waitress. We had to wait long for her to come and welcome us at the door, which was awkward. She was almost disappointing us to be there. We insisted, set and had a real good... read more

We thought we had reserved a table at the top of the Westin – based on the hotel's website – but discovered when we arrived that Yamato was not at the top but on the ground floor, so no view included.
