Fine Dining

Sekishin-tei 石心亭 @ Tokyo

For a taste of Japan, head to Sekishin-Tei in the luxury hotel’s garden. Housed in a Japanese-style cabin, this tiny teppanyaki spot overlooks the koi pond and serves exquisitely grilled beef and seafood selections, cooked to order.

The verdant 400-year-old Japanese garden at Hotel New Otani Tokyo is an enchanting oasis located in the center of the metropolis.

Stroll through 10 acres of greenery, rocks and waterfalls; see the highly prized school of koi carp in the pond; and walk across the vibrant red Japanese bridges to find a quiet nook to sit and read.

Within this grand 10-acre garden, you will find 3 teppanyaki restaurants.

A unique culinary experience in a very unique setting, Sekishin-tei is a relaxing counter-style seating restaurant nestled within the 400 year old Japanese Garden. A mixture of Japanese, Western and Chinese style cuisine is grilled right in front of you by expert chefs.
