Chef Kenji Yamanaka’s omakase menu is a sumptuous treat; the mushroom royale is an extract of three types of fungi and the addition of truffle elevates its star power. The plump Hokkaido scallop is lightly pan-seared to retain its sweetness before it’s served atop a celeriac and truffle concoction. The meal peaks with the Nozaki A5 wagyu, grilled to medium-rare to let its robust flavours shine, as did the dessert of Amazon chocolate block shaved onto the banana and mandarin dessert. The drinks list is a mixture of wines, sakes and premium teas, served by personable and attentive staff.
