We had a fabulous evening celebrating my husband’s birthday. We were very well looked after and the food was outstanding. We will be back again soon to try even more of the yummy menu. Thank you so much.

The first thought is that this name should be Japanese food, but turned out to be a good Chinese food Restaurant in Four Seasons

Great service and great food! Enjoyable experience....hidden gem of a restaurant in the Four Season Hotel. Good value for the set lunch..... Excellent choices for starters which you can share on the table. Only a slight negative...only one choice of desert which was ice-cream or sorbet.

Amazing experience!
We're no doubt two foodies but we are definitely not used to this kind of fancy food (I wish we were).
The food was amazing and the whole atmosphere was pleasant and even felt luxury.
The prices were fine as well for this kind of restaurant.

The service doesn’t seem to match with the cost of the meal. They seem to be understaff. Not satisfactory given the Four Season brand name.

We went for the set menu on Saturday, and whilst good value, you would hope that it gave you an insight to the main menu and encouraged you to return. Unfortunately it seemed to have been very much engineered to the price and consisted of a lot of fried batter without any merit or meat, and overall ranked below a standard high street take away. Not fine dining and not busy either.

As a solo traveller enjoying a fine dine now and then I would really recommend the place. I got great assistance in compiling my menu. I enjoy eating my food at the bar and the two young chefs at the bar (one Korean, the other Scottish/Thai) were amazing chats. I arrived at 12:00 sharp, but due to their engaging chats and impeccable service it never felt like dining alone.

Sushi was amazing especially the avo, salmon and crab roll with miso butter, service was good but there was no ambience what so ever, the restaurant was not full even for a Saturday night, perhaps this is due to location, I think it would probably be busy in the week with city workers.

Nothing amazed me from our mains, the short rib was all fat and no meat, so do not get this. Black cod was okay, kung po chicken and crispy veal were okay too.

Yuzu creme brûlée was lovely.

Overall I think this restaurant is unfortunately just a ‘hotel restaurant’ but I would go back if I was in the area, however, I would not plan to go back.

The restaurant is beautiful but I found the food on the average side. With the Peking Duck the pancakes were too thick and the duck carved too thick as well. The pancakes break when you fold them etc.

The tempura vegetables were not very good. The vegetables weren’t fresh and the batter way to thick and soggy. The Maki was ok but similar in quality to what you can buy in Tesco.

Service was friendly but all over the place with staff seemingly struggling to cope. We were served by several different people had to ask for menus after 15 mins and so on.

All in all the evening was not terrible but it was far from great. Just an average hotel restaurant. For the price of the meal (£200+) for two people, the quality needs to be much better as other Japanese and Chinese restaurants in London have much better quality of food and service overall.

On our first visit, we had a la carte and it was really good back in 2017, followed by couple of more visits on special menu last year. Recently visited and we had a special course menu and the food was unfortunately not to previous standards. Presentation was not great compared to previous occasions. The Service however was amazing and attentive.

Food services was rushed in and out within 1 hour of arrival!
Starters were out in 5 minutes of ordering, barely finished that and main was ready for serving.
The single scallop is not a starter it should be an amuse Bouche - c'mon!
Booking was 7pm & cost £178 I have no issue with cost if I had time to enjoy the ambience, all very rushed!
Anything but 5 stars for this experience which is shame as the hotel it sits within is otherwise superb with no complaints at all.

We wont be returning to restaurant sadly.
