Supper at Kyoto Gardens

We had a business meeting at Kyoto Gardens just off Kloof Nek Road on Friday and our colleague bought us dinner afterwards. They have slightly changed their menu to (the more usual layout) starter, main course and dessert format and we had a great meal with well paired wines. It can be expensive but the price is worth paying for such fresh seafood and Japanese dishes
Our starter of sea urchin sushi. Tastes of the sea. Different and enjoyable
This plate was going to another table but we couldn't resist taking a photo as it was so pretty. Snow crab and asparagus, we think
Probably the most delicious beef we have had in a year or three. Thin slices of just seared Kobe beef - meltingly tender and very, very flavourful with a very simple dressing and sprinkled with sesame seeds
Our main course of thin slices of kingklip on lemon rice topped with bok choy
There was plenty for two and some rice was left over. We were enjoying the food so much we forgot to take more photographs
We were not expecting to stay for supper, so the only camera we had with us was our old Nokia Windows Lumia 920 (with a cracked screen for the last several months nogal), still arguably the best camera phone in the business. All photographs taken without flash, under the restaurant's dim lighting, with minimal editing
