    Food and service was amazing. Drinks were really good too. Ambience could have been a bit more intimate it was quite bright in the evening.

    This was a birthday treat for my wife and it was an absolute success. The Team at The Four Seasons ( Mei Ume) were wonderful. From the moment we arrived at reception to our departure photograph taken by Michael. The ambience was perfect. After gorgeous aperitifs, we experienced a fusion of Chinese and Japanese in the taster menu which description understates its 11 courses. The wine was a great match. Everyone was excellent! The Chef delighted and we took away a signed copy of the menu as a memory. Thank you all. Special.

    Really good atmosphere and good was some of the best quality and cooked with care that I have experienced in a long time. The servers where very attentive and complimented the ambience. The only note would be regards the over zealous sommelier.

    The restaurant is beautiful, the food is superb and the service excellent. My only negative is restaurant of this quality in a hotel like the Four Seasons should have higher standards for its guests. I don’t expect when attending a dinner like this to have someone seated next to me wearing shorts and baseball cap, and neither do I feel babies should be allowed into the restaurant at 9:30pm. All the other guests were appropriately attired.

    Chinese food, dumplings and main dishes very goods. We appreciate the hand made pasta dumplings. But the rice sushi was not very good. I can understand a chinese concept with a japanese bad sushi. The best of the meal was our waiter Jonathan. He made our anniversary very familiar. We love the concept in a luxury place a familiar service. Congratulations for that.

    We visited Mei Ume for 21st birthday celebrations. It was our first visit and all our expectations were well and truly met. Everyone was so friendly. Jonathan helped us through the menu and made some helpful recommendations. The food was delicious, the pork belly literally melted in the mouth. We couldn't fault anything and are looking forward to our next visit.

    Ambience, interior design and service were excellent!! However, food was not great. I was disappointed to see that the cocktails are not served in the special glasses anymore and the food taste wise was nothing special. My friends noted that noodles were too oily and sushi was not something special. I would recommend the restaurant to other friends to visit for the experience but I will forward them about the food not being great.

    Food is beautifully presented and service is extremely attentive. Portions are quite fair - and some seem reasonable value whilst others are quite expensive. Lovely surroundings. Good veggie options (there is a separate veggie menu - you need to ask for it - not volunteered). Bit pricey but nice for a special treat.

    The restaurant had the most beautiful decoration for the cherrr blossom season, it’s already a great space with high ceilings and great decor from Asia and Japan but the cherry blossoms made it more special. I great cocktails, the food was great too. I had spring rolls, dim sum (the mushroom truffle was heaven) and black cod with rice. Everything to perfection. For dessert I had the cherry blossom dessert with was definitely a great piece of art and the taste was great but I couldn’t call it extraordinary.

    Very nice venue and good service, average food, terrible cocktails. Food had poor presentation, no better than a standard oriental restaurant. Food tasted ok but heavily overpriced. I would definitely say the quality of food was far from fine dining standards. I expected much better, given the prices they charge.
