All Food and Drink
Meet up with friends and mingle indoors by the fireplace, grab a seat at the sleek and modern bar, or, book a table on the large waterside terrace overlooking the pond garden and enjoy the uncomplicated, seasonal menu at our relaxed, light-filled brasserie.
- Sushi Wakon
The vision of Master Chef Rei Masuda, our one-Michelin-starred restaurant offers an intimate and interactive experience as you watch as our master chefs create stunning dishes made with top-quality ingredients flown in each day from Tokyo’s iconic Tsukiji market – either at the 200-year-old, 10-seat Hinoki counter, or in one of our two private-dining rooms.
- The Lounge & Bar
Enjoy a hand-dripped cup of coffee or relax with a Kyoto-inspired cocktail in a comfortable seat in our modern lobby lounge.
Tucked away in our historic ikeniwa sits our traditional tea house, where Japanese sweets and matcha tea is served and an evening glass of Kyoto sake or premium Champagne on the terrace provides the perfect opportunity to gaze at the sparkling light of the pond’s reflections.
- In-Room Dining
Whether you want to share a romantic dinner in the privacy of your room, need to feed a hungry family or are looking for quiet evening in, our in-room menus feature Japanese and international favourites, as well as items from Brasserie, all just a tap away on your room’s iPad.
- December 14, 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Wine Seminar & Dinner
Our Chef Sommelier Tomohiro Tanaka shares trends and information on new California wines sourced during his recent summer winery pilgrimage. Participants are welcomed with a sampling of selected wines and an exclusive menu.
- September 1 – November 30, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm (last order at 2:30 pm) and 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm (last order at 5:30 pm)
Salvatore Ferragamo Afternoon Tea
An elegant, feminine afternoon tea evokes the worldview of Italian luxury brand Salvatore Ferragamo’s popular Signorina fragrance. Enjoy an array of seasonal flavours, from savouries to sweets, decorated with signature Ferragamo ribbons. A minibottle gift of Signorina is a fitting memento of a luxurious autumn afternoon.
- September 10 — November 30, from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm
Discover Dinner Course
Ingredients from across Japan have been gathered to create this special dinner course at Brasserie. Mushrooms from Nagano Prefecture are steamed for six hours to create “mushroom tea.” A plush sauté of Rockfish from Nagasaki joins tenderloin of Hiraigyu, Kyoto’ s top brand of beef, as the main dish. Other seasonal delicacies find a place in our celebration of Japanese flavours, recommended in particular for those visiting from abroad. Prices start at JPY 16,000 (Subject to 15% service charge and 8% consumption tax).
- Making Spirits Bright
Filled with anticipation for the festive season, we welcome you with a fusion of Japanese and Western traditions—from frothy "Santa's Beard" cocktails to Toshikoshi Soba New Year's Eve noodles. Join us for a memorable holiday, enhanced by views of our historic Shakusui-en pond garden.Details
- A sip of tradition
A scenic walk across a glass bridge leads you to our intimate tea house, Shakusui-tei, nestled in our historic ikeniwa, where a tea master waits to introduce you to the solemn art of a traditional tea ceremony. Please make your reservation at least one week in advance.
- Delight in the details
In addition to the masterfully trained chefs at Sushi Wakon, the entire restaurant is a testament to Japanese craft and design. Evidence ranges from the rotating selection of regional artwork in the dining rooms, to the handmade metal tiles that celebrate Origami and Kumiko, to our centrepiece: an 8-metre long sushi counter made from a single piece of Japanese cypress, handcrafted by one of Japan’s greatest craftsmen 200 years ago.
