The outside of Ryotei looks like a deserted shopfront with tinted glass windows and graffiti. Before you wonder why we sent you here, open the door that looks like it should be locked and you’ll find a sleek, high-end sushi bar. The open kitchen in the middle means most of your attention will be on the chefs as they grill beef and slice sashimi, so dinner here is almost always an event, especially since the bill can add up quickly. Bring someone you’d like to impress and don’t be surprised when people start whispering - odds are a celebrity or soccer player just showed up.
