MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The kaiseki menu is the best way to experience chef Yoshinori Ishii’s cuisine – he trained at Kitcho in Kyoto; a bastion of tradition where the philosophy of kaiseki is preserved and celebrated. Due consideration is given to the provenance of the ingredients; the vegetables for the tempura are grown in Kent by a Japanese national, who imports the seeds from her home country, while fish comes courtesy of Cornish and Scottish fishermen to whom Yoshinori has taught the ikejime method of killing fish, in order to best preserve their quality. The elegantly dressed and dimly lit restaurant offers a chic backdrop for the eye-catching and occasionally playful food; quiet corners providing intimacy, and the sushi counter, plenty of chatter and excitement.
