High end Chinese place in Tokyo. Certainly nothing for the purist seeking original Chinese cuisine. However a fun place with an incredible wok powered by something which must be an US army grade flamethrower.
The food is very tasty with some interesting flavor combinations and flavors. The presentation is more French than Chinese but very well done.
The sommelier endeared himself to me in suggesting that the “regular” wine pairing is much better value than the prestige one, it then turned out the this pairing was extraordinary. Great wines, selected to go very well with the food. None of the usual BS when it comes to wine pairings. This is how you make friends.
