Inside of the Shangri-La hotel in Tokyo there is a Japanese restaurant called Nadaman. The first thing I noticed about the restaurant is the design. It’s quite unique and offers a very special dining experience. They offer Japanese cuisine with a few twists. To make the ordering process easier I went with the set course menu as well as well as a few tasty beverages to enjoy the food with.
First was a carafe of warm sake. Warm sake always puts me in the best of moods!
Not long after, came a few smaller dishes. There was an interesting arrangement of 3 to 4 small plates which put our taste buds on high alert. Although Japanese ingredients were used, some of these had influences from other areas.
It was a pretty average start then things started to get exciting! This was with a serving of sashimi. Full of flavor! I love when the quality of fish is high.
The next most exciting item that came was an order of Japanese beef. I’m not sure exactly where in Japan this came from but the flavor was just stupendous and the ratio of fat to meat was just perfect. It simply melted in my mouth and was accompanied with some vegetables on the side.
Once that was finished, we were wrapping things up and served miso soup and rice. Apparently, this was a very traditional Japanese way to end the meal. After that, it was some fruit for dessert and off to dreamland.
The restaurant design is beautiful. The view was gorgeous. You’ll have a chance to look down on Tokyo station, which is quite interesting to look at during the night. The food overall was quite nice, some dishes much better than others. For a few dishes I felt that they strayed away from Japanese traditional style a bit too much and could use some improvement. However, the more traditional items, such as the sashimi and beef were extraordinary. Considering the entire offering, I am quite confident that you will have a lovely meal at the Nadaman restaurant inside of the Shangri-La hotel in Tokyo, Japan.
