The food skews a little away from its down-to-earth, true-to-nature Japanese counterpart, with concessions to the Shanghai fine-dining crowds manifesting as foie gras and caviar, but it remains lavish, unapologetic, expensive Japanese food executed brilliantly. It's set-menu, and there're only two options; 2,880 rmb for the ten-course menu, the other is the 3,500rmb ten-course menu, which includes sake, Champagne, and wine pairings (same food). Yeah. If you have to ask, you can't afford it.
