A special place for a special occasion

If you are looking for a special place for special occasion with a special person I would like to suggest that Ginza Aster will certainly fulfill all of your needs. I had the privilege of dining there recently with some friends and it was fantastic. The décor and service make the atmosphere really special and I thought that it would be a great place for a birthday or anniversary, or in fact any other special occasion or celebration. Of course not to mention the food – it is probably the best Chinese food I have had – and there is a lot of great Chinese food around our great city. Both a la carte and courses are available – my friends and I chose a couple of dishes each from the a la carte menu and shared between us, but one of the course options I think would be great for a special occasion. Although the image of Aster Ginza is really expensive, it is actually very reasonable and they provide great value for the price. Courses start at 4000 yen for a great 5 course (!) meal. If you have any requests regarding allergies or specific ingredients you can’t eat I am sure that they can accommodate any requests you may have if you contact them in advance.
All in all I highly recommend Aster Ginza for any special occasion – I will certainly be heading back soon.
