Yamazato made history when it became the first traditional kaiseki restaurant outside Japan to be awarded a MICHELIN star thanks to Masanori Tomikawa's subtle cuisine that is full of velvet-smooth flavours. The chef showcases his highly accomplished technique in dishes such as precisely cut tuna sashimi and a seemingly simple, yet impressive green bean soup.
This place is all about the depth of the flavours. The menu always features an owan soup with white fish. Start with the highly aromatic consommé, then tuck into the vegetables and perfectly cooked fish to fully enjoy the classic kaiseki experience. This is food that will stop you in your tracks.
The intimate, pared-back decor will take you on a journey to the Land of the Rising Sun, while the view of the Japanese garden and staff dressed in kimonos create a sense of serenity. Yamazato is an ode to tradition.
