“You must come!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

It was one of the most amazing dining experience in my life.
All dishes that Chef Ping prepared only for 3 of us and next honey-moon couple were so unique, interesting, creative and very good!
Especially "Dashi" soup with prawn head, I could not stop myself to have it directly from the bowl (finally all guest did)!
Before I wondered if the volume would be enough, but it was needless fear. I become full with those wonderfull dishes.
I also liked much that relaxing, stylish and comfortable dining space, stunning night view of Tokyo, smart service, nice chat with friendly Chefs...
Definitely I recommend to all adult dining lovers who desire something different and eye-opening!

The best meal of my life. Sooooo creative and good. I have never had anything like this before. Its pricey at 15,000 yen but if you can afford it, I swear to you that it is WORTH it.
Absolute heaven.
Well done Tapas Molecular Bar- do not hesitate for one second to give this a try!

Better in real life!! Amazing. and Quite Unique! a new chef was just appointed when we were there and was still creating his New menu we saw nothing wrong with the old one...MMMMMMMMM

“Spectacular evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

This dinner is a performance as much as it is dinner, and the food is amazing.
Make sure to make a reservation way in advance, as they seat only 8 diners, twice an evening. There are no extra seats on the performance bar so adding people on the last minute is understandably impossible.
The restaurant is located on a high floor of the Mandarin hotel, and we arrived earlier and enjoyed the bar and atmosphere.
The menu is fixed and the price is around $200 a person.
The atmosphere around the bar is not private at all, so for special occasions make sure this is what you want before going.
