Visited for an early Valentine's Day celebration and treated ourselves to the tasting menu with paired wine - leaving all decisions up to chef Uwe and his team.
Turned out to be the right decision. Simply one of the most incredible culinary experiences we've had. A real adventure over eight courses with phenomenal flavours, combinations and a wealth of surprises. Developed a childlike sense of wonder and anticipation with every plate change. Highlights included the table-top picnic, the seasonal woodland tree, the hot beeswax cured trout, the exquisite melt-in-your-mouth Japanese beef, and the deconstructed black forest gateau, literally built by hand on the table top by the chef himself. All was served and managed by the excellent (almost prescient) Mandarin waiting staff.
Hunger was sated way before the end of the meal, but was impossible to stop eating. Rolled out at the end of the meal overfed, entertained and very content.
Thoroughly, thoroughly recommended.
