Meisei - pronounced Me-Say and meaning fame in Japanese - offers three floors of premium dining and entertainment space, including a stunning panoramic rooftop for al fresco dining. The diverse Japanese-Korean-Chinese fusion menu is prepared by Chef Michael Lee and his team of over 45 experienced chefs to create an exceptional dining experience, and is combined with other world cultures such as Italian, Canadian, French and Spanish to produce dishes that offer a never-before-seen interpretation of modern Japanese fusion cuisine. Meisei is currently offering a seasonal menu - Japan Meets Peru - using a Nikkei style of gastronomy borne of the Japanese influence on Peruvian cuisine since the 1800's
