Concept:Located in the posh Akasaka Sacas area of Tokyo, Rikyu prepares genuine Cantonese cuisine using the freshest Japanese seasonal ingredients. The lower floor of the restaurant evokes a feeling of modern sophistication while the second floor is stylish and liberating with a view of the Saca’s cherry blossoms. The space can be enjoyed much like a bar where one can sip wine, cocktails or Shaoxing wine.
Key Points:Akasaka Rikyu offers excellent service and a wide variety of menu choices from a la carte to set courses. Their lunch courses run from ¥3,500 with dinner courses ranging from ¥10,000 to ¥100,000. Akasaka Rikyu is unique in that they can prepare different items in the courses for each member of the dining party depending on each individual’s likes or dislikes, even if the issue is a food allergy, vegetarianism, or a religious concern.
Recommended Dishes:There is also an extensive a la carte menu and the sharks fin dishes and the grouper casserole are highly recommended. For a genuine and tasty Cantonese dining experience in a luxury locale, Akasaka Rikyu is well worth the trip.
