Time Out says
If you’re seeking a lavish beginning to your evening then China Blue on the 28th floor of the Conrad Tokyo hotel won’t disappoint. Chef Albert Tse made his fame in Hong Kong and Singapore before moving to Japan and commandeering the Conrad’s cloud-bothering restaurant in 2005. Despite the name, the food at China Blue is actually a happy fusion inspired by Tse’s Asian travels.
Each dish is impeccably presented and arrives begging to be Instagrammed before being dug into. If you can tear your eyes away from your plate, the stunning views over the harbour, including the twinkling Rainbow and Tokyo Gate bridges in the distance, are worth capturing.
The ‘Couples Course’ is actually seven – a tasting menu which features chef Tse’s signature dish, barbecue spare ribs with sweet and sour sauce, as its centrepiece. This isn’t your average finger food, as the sticky ribs are adorned with fresh strawberries, wasabi leaves and myoga (Japanese ginger). Artfully presented, it could be mistaken for your dessert.
