Most foodies and epicureans will have heard of Nihonryori RyuGin, one of Tokyo’s top restaurants (and of the world). A few years ago, the first RyuGin outside the borders of Japan opened in Hong Kong. Located atop Hong Kong’s tallest skyscraper, ICC, diners can enjoy a spectacular view together with their meal at Tenku RyuGin. Taste is not compromised as seasonal ingredients are flown in fresh daily from Japan. Chefs were also transferred over from the Tokyo location.
An a-la-carte menu is not an option at RyuGin. Dishes are served in authentic “kaiseki” style; a 10-course tasting menu consisting of appetizers, sashimi, soup, with simmered, grilled, steamed dishes and dessert. This will set you back about $280 USD (+ tip) however you can ensure it will be one of the most memorable dining experiences you will ever have! The menu changes with the seasons and includes only the freshest and highest quality seafood and meat available. The pricing may vary if booking during a special holiday, or requesting a custom menu.
How far in advance should you reserve a table? The restaurant accepts bookings 2 months in advance of your desired date. If you would like a window seat or want to request a custom menu, at least 1 month in advance is recommended.
Tenku RyuGin’s current Chef de Cuisine is Mr. Hidemichi Seki. He started his training at the young age of 19 in a famous Japanese Kaiseki restaurant alongside Owner/Chef Yamamoto. In 2003, he worked with Chef Yamamoto and took part in the opening of Restaurant RyuGin in Tokyo. Throughout the years, he has mastered the art of Japanese cooking and now became the Head Chef of Tenku RyuGin!
