Reservations here are a must, but can only be done via email or phone. We decided to have a celebratory New Year's Eve meal here. We thought there would be a special holiday menu, but it was the regular seasonal menu instead. We called the...More

Nanzan Giro Giro changes its six-course dinner menu every month and no dish is ever repeated. Every course in this month’s menu was simple yet so good. The ceremonial matcha at the end of the meal was also a lovely touch. The wine pairings offered...More

This fairly new eatery is very on trend. Great fit out and absolutely divine food. People were lining up to get a seat. The set menu meant no thinking involved and each and every course was delicious. The staff explained everything and were very attentive....More

Fantastic restaurant: Intimate interior; friendly and efficient service; the tasting menu was extraordinary - quality of the ingredients, sushi rice, cuts, marinades and sauces - it was a real delight to let the chefs surprise you with their creations (sometimes more traditional, sometimes a little...More

We have been to this restaurant for special occasions over the years. The service is still good, atmosphere a nice vibe and the presentation of the food can't be beat. For some reason, the flavors didn't seem as delicious and complex as in the past.

Meal was very flavorful and nicely presented on decorative plates, bowls, etc. I give it only 3 stars because every dish was more like a teaser taster. Very minimal portions. For example, a butterfish piece would take me ONE bite if it was a normal...More

We were lucky enough to be seated directly in front of the chef at the long bar that surrounds the central kitchen area. Nanzan Giro Giro, being a kaiseki restaurant doesn’t have an ala carte menu, you’re at the whim of the chef. However, this...More

I think the menu changes monthly. The service style is known as kaiseki and is a "set" menu of about 6 courses with an optional dessert course. I don't think they post the menu, but you can call them for what's being served... More
