At $500 (USD$400) for a 10 course degustation menu, the entire experience is expected to be comfortable and unforgettable. The relative high quality with the high price is a given. Therefore I am sorry that I was not that impressed with the dishes compared to other Michelin-star restaurants I have visited around the world. I wish that after repeating the same menu for almost three years there could be some innovations in presentation, some seasonalities of ingredients and some surprises in taste. And perhaps a more permanent chef since it is not realistic to expect the present of Mr Tetsuya. While I still enjoy the signature marinated Botan shrimp with sea urchin and oscietra caviar and the Australia abalone with fregola and tomato, I have also discovered many attractive alternatives that offer equally great good outside the prestigious casino with genuine warm service. However, Waku Ghin is still a place to impress someone, given all the publicities the establishment had received.
