Authentic Cantonese Chinese.
Enjoyed sophisticated dishes.
Very comfortable space,good service.


Outstanding food and service.

We chose the Peony Set Course and it was astonishing how delicious everything was. Truly a once in a lifetime meal, and we're grateful for the care and time put into our dining experience.

The staff even reached out prior to our visit to discuss the timetable and the New Year's holiday and worked with us to ensure the evening went off without a hitch.

Eat here, you will not regret a single morsel.


I visited Akasaka Imperial Palace's Akasaka Main Store for the first time during lunch time, located on the second floor of the atrium of Akasaka Biz Tower. The hall for general customers is not very large, but it has a nice solid feel. I had the dim sum course and the food was excellent. In particular, the xiaolongbao with hot water soup is a masterpiece that is refreshing and yet has an exquisite flavor. The congee at the end was also extremely delicious. Ah, I'm satisfied.
