Manchinro Honten: My Five star restaurant in Yokohama Chinatown
Established in 1892, this Cantonese restaurant is one of the oldest in Chinatown
It is the grandest and most lavish looking Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. They have 400 kinds of menu out of around 2,000 Cantonese dishes. I would say they are definitely one of the Five Star restaurants in terms of gorgeous atmosphere, deliciousness and professional staff serving skills.
Their president, Mr. Kensei Hayashi serves as a real leader of the Yokohama Chinatown and it is no exaggeration to say he is committed and responsible for all prosperity of about 200 restaurants and shops in the area. He has published a book about China town too.
As the owner of Manchinro, he believe it is the key success factor for a large restaurant like Manchinro to make it possible for every chef to make and serve the same taste. Manchinro is also famous for their collection of legendary pianos made in Chinatown before the war.
As there are just too many Chinese restaurants in Chinatown, people take a stroll along the main street to find out which one suits your budget and taste. However, as I have heard from so many people that it's hard to find a real good one, I have been sharing some of my recommendations here on Deep Japan as well as other channels. Manchinro is definitely a thoughtful place and choice to acknowledge life’s special moments with your family.
