The Mandarin Oriental's casual-dining spot offers creative contemporary cuisine with an Asian twist, plus a great view of Ginza and Marunouchi. The Y5,000 tasting menu is a good deal if you like variety - you can pick seven different appetizers for the table to share, plus soup and your choice of a main dish. Apps range from crab cakes with mango marmalade to scallops in a truffle dome, followed by substantial mains like miso-marinated loin of lamb, and Australian beef sirloin with yuzu pepper sauce.

The wine program features fourteen wines by the glass, with complimentary tastings - if you can't decide among the syrah and the cabernet and the merlot you can have a sip of each to help make up your mind. At lunchtime there's an abbreviated version of the tasting menu (Y3800), plus pizzas. In the morning you'll find good Japanese and international breakfasts (Y2800-3800).
