Kaden Minokichi, Beijing

The restaurant within Pangu 7 Star Hotel provides guests with set kaiseki menus in six private tatami rooms.
Minokichi in Japanese signifies ‘Beautiful, Deeply, Happy,’ reflecting Kyoto Cuisine’s principles of cultural preservation ’emotional satisfaction over material things’.

All ingredients, chefs and staff derive from the Far-Eastern country, as does the interior design, with sunken tables and large pictures window reminiscent of simplistic Zen décor.
