“Amazing experience”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I celebrated my birthday with a meal at the Molecular Tapas Bar at the Mandarin Oriental and I wasn't disappointed! The dishes were extremely creative and interesting but also absolutely delicious - my favourite was the beach dish and the lamb chop - best I have ever tasted! Money wise it is great value - so many restaurants in Tokyo are much more expensive then this and the quality of both food and service isn't as good as here.

Both chefs were extremely friendly and explained what each dish was and the idea behind it - they went out of their way to make sure you had a good evening - they even treated me to a little surprise for my birthday.
A night i'll always remember - if you're in Tokyo then head here!

“Spectacular Food--Service Directly from Chef”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

This is the ultimate slow food tapas bar. The many small dishes--all of which are excellent--are served at a nice pace with an explanation of both the ingredients and the preparation process.

Molecular cuisine may have reached its peak a few years ago, but this restaurant is still riding the top of the wave.

“Wow is all I can say.....”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Simply the most amazing foody experience.......

The chef was so gracious and his creations amazing. Really challenged our perceptions of what food should be or could be.

Throughly recommend it to anyone that loves food. A great night especially if you go with a group. Book in advance though, its very popular.
