My out-of-town visitor wanted Asian food and I like Japanese. The location was convenient. The prices have increased, but the all-you-can-eat "buffet" menu with free flow of green tea and Asahi beer on tap was worth it for 398 rmb pp plus something. We had a large variety of sushi, sashimi, appetizers, sakatori, teppanayaki, noodles, rice, and two desserts each. Not busy tonight, good service. Btw, not really a buffet, all table service. I would go again, but go hungry and try many different dishes: it's not a bargain. But it was good fun!

Not that there's anything very wrong with this place. It's just that because it's a Four Seasons restaurant, I had rather high expectations. Instead it's just a pretty average restaurant. The food, the decor, the service...there's nothing memorable about the place. By all means, go there for a quick meal. Just don't expect it's going to be a dining experience.

The food was good not exceptional, the floor to ceiling windows made for a dramatic view but otherwise a cold feeling space, the service was OK, though the staff all on ear pieces gave it an inpersonal touch,
The three of us ended up with a bill of $450 that included one medium priced bottle of white wine and one small ceramic bottle of sake, two had main course servings, and one only had an appetizer. They did offer desert for the two main course customers which was a choice between vanilla or chocolate Haagan Das ice cream. In a high end Japanese restaurant we thought they were joking .
Do not bother unless you are on expense account entertaining Japanese clients, not worth it!
