The food wasn't as outstanding as I'd expected. It's not like it was bad at all. In fact, it was pretty good. It's just that the food fell (a little) short of the rather high expectations I had of this purportedly award-winning restaurant with such an illustrious lineage.

In line with my opinion, the restaurant was barely filled on a weekend night, with most patrons seeming like guests of the hotel itself, with not a single Japanese (which is a sure sign of whether the food is authentic or not).

We had:

1) Sushi Tempura Set Course Dinner ($120): Save for the prawns in Chawanmushi were rubbery, dry and had a very muddy taste; and the tempura batter in the Tempura Moriawase had a somewhat thicker consistency than I'd expected of such a restaurant, the rest of the courses were great.

2) Aoi Kaiseki ($160): the only bad stuff was the deep fried pike eel rice roll with asparagus, which was awful - the eel was filled with so many sharp bones it was totally inedible. The rest were delicious.

For such a restaurant, there really shouldn't any amateurish moves like these. That said, we still had a reasonably good meal.
