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 Mun Seok Choi 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 14 guests around a large central table, perfect for group dinners, corporate or private events.

Last minute booking in between Christmas and New Year. Food was excellent, soft shell crab, shrimp, hot and sour soup, chicken and beef mains. Had Dover Sole as well, which was the only disappointment. Great wine and cocktail selection, service was exceptional. We eat Asian food extensively and will definitely go to Mei Ume again!

We went to Mei Ume for my partner’s birthday and we were both extremely pleased with our choice of place. By the time we finished our 2 starters, main, desert and a bottle of Rioja we were stuffed and glad that we had an extremely comfortable corner sofa to ourselves. The decor, food and service, all gets 5 stars in our book.

The restaurant is in a lovely location and is beautifully decorated, but I found the food average. It seemed to be more style over substance. It definitely was not worth the amount we ended up paying. The amount you would spend is on par with Nobu or Hakkasan, but I thought the food was not as good. There was also a large group celebrating a birthday on the next table which meant me and my friend did not receive any food for 45 minutes after we ordered. It was only when I raised the fact we were still waiting with one of the waiters that they went and checked the kitchen.

The restaurant was fantastic, the food was great. The only problem I had was the service, I would have liked more explanation about the menu, and then the dishes when they were served. They just left us with the menu and food a bit disappointing considering.

We were surprised by the Peking Duck - it was succulent, the skin crispy and firm. We ordered a half order and it was so good we had to ask for the rest!

It is an interesting mix of Japanese and Chinese options and we were very pleased to be greeted and recognized by the restaurant manager. A nice touch.

Second visit to Mei Ume and it didn’t disappoint. The food, location and staff are wonderful. The attention to detail is excellent and service is efficient but not intrusive. There are so many exciting options on the menu and the same attention to detail is taken to the vegetarian options. Would definitely recommend and will be back for further visits

Good all round, but definitely overpriced in our opinion for what you get. Your purely paying being at the Four Seasons, which is not a bad thing for those who appreciate it. Current team and service is good but still has to improve to be at the level it's pitching itself at, since you would expect excellence. Maybe it's a matter of time since the restaurant is fairly new.

Too loud and expensive for what it was. Our order was mixed up, the duck course for extra 50 GBP was very small (while excellent). We’ve been once before, gave it a second chance but don’t think we’ll be coming back.

Still a great place but I have seen things I don’t like in this, my fourth, visit. A £22 glass of Meursault has to be served in the appropriate Burgundy glass and poured from the bottle, not brought from behind the counter. In the past, it was always like this. Four Seasons: watch the small details!

I celebrated my birthday here with my family who all work in the City of London and some travelled from afar and it was just brilliant from start to finish. We had the lunch set menu which was outstanding for the value. The food is superb and the service excellent, and we were not left hungry!

My only criticism is that I am sure I noted in the booking that it was my birthday, but it was not acknowledged at all which was sad, but that is the only compliant I had!

This will definitely become a regular go-to for us, thank you so much!

I visited Mei Ume with my girlfriend for her birthday. The restaurant had a relaxing ambience with a modern Asian style atmosphere. We were advised by a sommelier, which was a good added value compared with other restaurants that do not necessarily offer this service. We had the tasting menu, the cuisine was nice, the chef respected all the ingredients that he used, but it was mostly the freshness of the food that really appreciated. The service was amazing, Jonathan really made the difference as he knew to play between respecting our privacy and adding some sparkle throughout this experience. Only reservation, we weren't very thrilled by the cocktails. Overall, great experience, definitely recommend it!

Absolutely incredible meal. Booked for a birthday and they even came out and sang! Two of us had veggie tasting menus, two had normal and every dish was exquisite. Waiters always on hand (they weren't "too close" as a lot of people seem to be saying) and were great with suggestions. Loved it!

My second time at this restaurant. The food is great quality however portions are still small. The service however quick, almost feels too quick and often feels rushed to finish your meal. With the servers standing right on top of you or watching to see when you finish the food which is uncomfortable when going for a relaxing meal!
