Asian
Mei Ume offers authentic yet modern Chinese and Japanese cuisine from two distinct kitchens. Showcasing two of the greatest Asian cuisines under one roof, the restaurant includes a bar, lounge and table seating, as well as a private dining room for up to 13 people.

Under the guidance of Head Chef Tony Truong, the Chinese kitchen offers a wide variety of approachable dishes, including the signature Mei Ume Peking Duck, served according to tradition across two courses. Focusing on the quality of the ingredients, Sushi Chef Kyle Lee takes the helm of the Mei Ume Bar serving delicate, well-balanced sushi and sashimi alongside a selection of expertly crafted cocktails served by the talented bartenders. An extensive wine and sake menu complements the restaurant menu.

Private Dining

The private dining room is separated from the main restaurant by bamboo screen panels, which provide privacy whilst also retaining the atmosphere of the restaurant. This elegant room can seat up to 13 guests around a large central table, perfect for group dinners, corporate or private events.

We come here or every occasion since our daughter was born and not only is the service excellent but the food is fantastic. Coming from an Asian background I would highly recommend.

Trust me the food was incredible at this restaurant but the staff really made this evening extra special. From the entrance to the hotel , entrance to the restaurant , the staff behind the bar and the waiting staff everyone was very welcoming and extremely helpful. Really impressive experience and highly recommend!

The décor was nice but that's about it. Our waitress was miserable and the food was mixed - some dishes were quite nice (but you'd still expect more at the price) and others were so bad that we left them uneaten. The cocktail I ordered was horrible (it tasted like cough syrup) and I had to send it back - to be fair to them, at least they didn't charge me for it. I definitely won't be going back. On the other hand, the main bar (Rotunda Bar) in the same hotel is divine and serves amazing (albeit expensive) cocktails and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Really lovely food, fantastic Service, venue and location. Only slight down side was portion size in relation to cost. But the food was high quality and delicious. Great find.

This was our 2nd visit to Mei Ume, our 1st date and 10 months later to celebrate our 1st Christmas together. Both occasions we’re extremely special and we enjoyed absolutely everything...food, wine and service. All excellent

The Ambience of the place is amazing and the food taste very good. The portions are relatively small and it is a-bit on the expensive side. However, if your feeling boujee then this place is LIT.

Had the misfortune to sit next to two drunk, sweary business men dispensing relationship advice to each other, but not the restaurants fault. Everything else first class and will go back again

Great service and great food! Enjoyable experience....hidden gem of a restaurant in the Four Season Hotel. Good value for the set lunch..... Excellent choices for starters which you can share on the table. Only a slight negative...only one choice of desert which was ice-cream or sorbet.

Amazing experience!
We're no doubt two foodies but we are definitely not used to this kind of fancy food (I wish we were).
The food was amazing and the whole atmosphere was pleasant and even felt luxury.
The prices were fine as well for this kind of restaurant.

The service doesn’t seem to match with the cost of the meal. They seem to be understaff. Not satisfactory given the Four Season brand name.

We went for the set menu on Saturday, and whilst good value, you would hope that it gave you an insight to the main menu and encouraged you to return. Unfortunately it seemed to have been very much engineered to the price and consisted of a lot of fried batter without any merit or meat, and overall ranked below a standard high street take away. Not fine dining and not busy either.

As a solo traveller enjoying a fine dine now and then I would really recommend the place. I got great assistance in compiling my menu. I enjoy eating my food at the bar and the two young chefs at the bar (one Korean, the other Scottish/Thai) were amazing chats. I arrived at 12:00 sharp, but due to their engaging chats and impeccable service it never felt like dining alone.

Sushi was amazing especially the avo, salmon and crab roll with miso butter, service was good but there was no ambience what so ever, the restaurant was not full even for a Saturday night, perhaps this is due to location, I think it would probably be busy in the week with city workers.

Nothing amazed me from our mains, the short rib was all fat and no meat, so do not get this. Black cod was okay, kung po chicken and crispy veal were okay too.

Yuzu creme brûlée was lovely.

Overall I think this restaurant is unfortunately just a ‘hotel restaurant’ but I would go back if I was in the area, however, I would not plan to go back.

The restaurant is beautiful but I found the food on the average side. With the Peking Duck the pancakes were too thick and the duck carved too thick as well. The pancakes break when you fold them etc.

The tempura vegetables were not very good. The vegetables weren’t fresh and the batter way to thick and soggy. The Maki was ok but similar in quality to what you can buy in Tesco.

Service was friendly but all over the place with staff seemingly struggling to cope. We were served by several different people had to ask for menus after 15 mins and so on.

All in all the evening was not terrible but it was far from great. Just an average hotel restaurant. For the price of the meal (£200+) for two people, the quality needs to be much better as other Japanese and Chinese restaurants in London have much better quality of food and service overall.
