    Outstanding service from everyone at this restaurant. A beautiful setting with beautiful art, simple and not pretentious. The food was delicious and the course were spaced out well. They acknowledged our anniversary with a beautiful matcha ice cream. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

    Food is mediocre or, very disappointing as a Michelin restaurant. Any restaurant in China can do a better job. Not worth the money. I regret to waste one meal in this place, very very disappointed.

    Coming to Mei Ume was my first ever Japanese food experience, I've never even had a dumpling before or wagyu beef. Coming through the four seasons interior made it feel like a magical event (and it was me and my partners 6 year anniversary, so it was already exciting). But then the greeting and seating was very comfortable, the waiters were very friendly and helped me understand portion sizes and what things mean (I learned how to use chop sticks on the spot aswell). The value is there for such a great venue and amazing food + service. Definitely will be going again, probably for a birthday or anniversary, but wow the food was to die for.

    The attention from arrival until end was impeccable. The different dishes delicious, maybe the fried rice lacked some more taste but everything else was real good. Duck spring rolls were delicious as the Tapioca dessert and wagyu on hot stone.

    This was a birthday treat for my wife and it was an absolute success. The Team at The Four Seasons ( Mei Ume) were wonderful. From the moment we arrived at reception to our departure photograph taken by Michael. The ambience was perfect. After gorgeous aperitifs, we experienced a fusion of Chinese and Japanese in the taster menu which description understates its 11 courses. The wine was a great match. Everyone was excellent! The Chef delighted and we took away a signed copy of the menu as a memory. Thank you all. Special.

    We spent 15mins trying to find the entrance of the restaurant because its actually located inside the Four Seasons hotel (which isn't mentioned on their website). The service was ok but the waiters were slow at topping up wine, checking on drinks and making sure the food was ok after it was served. The restaurant décor is top notch and the food in general was ok.

    The restaurant is beautiful, the food is superb and the service excellent. My only negative is restaurant of this quality in a hotel like the Four Seasons should have higher standards for its guests. I don’t expect when attending a dinner like this to have someone seated next to me wearing shorts and baseball cap, and neither do I feel babies should be allowed into the restaurant at 9:30pm. All the other guests were appropriately attired.
