Yamazato Macau

Artful, seasonal cuisine in Macau
Yamazato is the signature restaurant at all Okura Hotels around the world, and there is a reason why: Culinarily speaking, it’s the crown jewel of cuisine offered at the Okura.

Yamazato in Hotel Okura Macau offers the most refined and exquisite sushi, kaiseki ryori meals — a series of beautiful dishes that perfectly reflect the season — and chef’s daily grill recommendations.

Executive chefs Takashi Asanuma, who heads the Japanese kitchen, and Roald Schuur, who oversees the Western kitchen, create dishes that artfully highlight the best authentic cuisine from their respective areas. Every dish is beautifully prepared and served by a well-trained yet unobtrusive staff.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• Skip the teatime at your table and book a session with the restaurant’s tea master in the bubble-shaped tea ceremony room. Here you can consult with Yayoi, the former tea master at Hotel Okura Tokyo, who will share his four decades of experience with you.

• Although there is a sushi and sashimi à la carte menu, if you go this route you’ll miss the whole point of dining here: kaiseki. The traditional multi-course Japanese meal has become synonymous with fine dining, and its menu offerings are the star attractions at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant. 

• Although most of the staff wear Western dress, look for the handful of women in kimonos. These servers aren’t dressed up simply to match the restaurant’s soothing ambiance; they are from a Japanese hospitality school and are at Yamazato for up to a year to polish their skills.

• For a special occasion, book the chef’s table — which is more like a beautifully appointed room — where one of the restaurant’s star Japanese chefs will cook a menu of meat grilled to perfection right before your eyes.

• The sake menu here is expertly curated and brought from the adjacent Sakazuki Sake Bar. If you don’t know your sake from your shochu, the friendly staff is happy to walk you through the menu.
Things to Know
• Yamazato served lunch (noon to 3 p.m.) and dinner (5:30 to 10 p.m.) Tuesday through Sunday. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.

• There’s actually no formal dress code at Yamazato, but since the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended 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.

• If you’re staying at any of the Galaxy Macau hotels (Okura, Banyan Tree or Galaxy), simply make a phone call to the concierge to book your table, or you can make a reservation by calling 853-8883-5127.
