Chef Kenji Yamanaka’s 1-Michelin-star béni at the Mandarin Gallery delivers quality service and deceptively simple-looking, but stupendous delicious-tasting works of art. His 8-seater requires forward reservation - but once, ensconced there, one understands why: each & every patron was treated like royalty and accorded every bit of attention from the amazing service staff.
Bread was served in a bag, kept warm with heated pebbles.
Our lunch consisted of:
Oyster & watercress.
Shima aji, paired with bamboo.
Mushroom, cream and truffle Royale.
Scallop with celeriac puree and truffle dressing.
