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.

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.

One of the best Chinese restaurants in London. Food was amazing, especially the green beans with minced pork and the grilled teriyaki chicken; service was greats, waiters were super nice and friendly; desserts were delicious; and such a beautiful restaurant. Will definitely come back soon!

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.

On our first visit, we had a la carte and it was really good back in 2017, followed by couple of more visits on special menu last year. Recently visited and we had a special course menu and the food was unfortunately not to previous standards. Presentation was not great compared to previous occasions. The Service however was amazing and attentive.

Food services was rushed in and out within 1 hour of arrival!
Starters were out in 5 minutes of ordering, barely finished that and main was ready for serving.
The single scallop is not a starter it should be an amuse Bouche - c'mon!
Booking was 7pm & cost £178 I have no issue with cost if I had time to enjoy the ambience, all very rushed!
Anything but 5 stars for this experience which is shame as the hotel it sits within is otherwise superb with no complaints at all.

We wont be returning to restaurant sadly.

We ordered the pork rib appetiser followed by half a Peking duck and lobster noodles. Quality of the food was good but the duck and the noodles arrived at the same time.
We decided to eat the noodles first but by the time we got to the duck, the pancakes were cold and stuck together.
I ordered a dessert and my partner received a complimentary dessert as it was his birthday dinner.
