Narisawa did not live up to its hype in taste. However, they excelled in creativity. Out of all the top 50 restaurants I've visited, Narisawa is the one with the prettiest presentation (my sisters are yelling in the back that Noma and El Bulli are better, but I beg to differ). We had wine pairing with our meal. Thumbs up to the connoisseur as he definitely picked the right wine/sake to complement the food.
The restaurant itself has a very nice ambience. Service was excellent. The chef himself came out after the climax of the meal was served (wagyu beef in our case) to offer to have our pictures taken with him.
Best dish of the night was the grilled chi ayu. As for the wagyu, it was coated with charcoal and personally, I like my beef grilled without anything but salt and pepper. Dessert tray was the highlight of our night. They offered so many different types of sweets. If you have room left to try all, then try it all!
Overall, a very nice experience. Unfortunately the taste is only average.
