    What is the dress code at Yamazato Macau?

    Yamazato is the high-end signature Japanese sushi and kaiseki ryori restaurant in Hotel Okura Macau. There’s actually no formal dress code at Yamazato, either for lunch or dinner. But since the restaurant has a luxurious atmosphere, you’ll likely feel most comfortable dressed in smart-casual attire. That means a nice shirt and slacks for men and upscale pants, dresses or skirts for women. Short pants might feel out of place, especially during dinnertime, considering the Macau restaurant is part of Galaxy Macau, a sprawling complex. You might be tempted to continue your evening at other entertainment or gambling venues — like the ultra-sophisticated Bar Rouge or the Sakazuki Sake Bar — and you’ll want to look the part.
