Yamazato is located on the 2nd floor of Hotel Okura Manila and currently accessible through the Newport Grand Wing Casino of Resorts World Manila.

The Okura’s signature Japanese fine dining restaurant Yamazato serves only the freshest ingredients that ensure supreme taste and unmatched quality.

The time-honored Kaiseki Ryouri is a multi-course Japanese haute cuisine meticulously crafted by Japanese Executive Chef Rinnosuke Mouri, as the seasons change. The food emphasizes the unique flavors of traditional ingredients and is served in small sequences, to let you appreciate every detail in delight.

The elegance of Yamazato lies in its fine details, from a ceiling that mimics the elaborate folds of origami to the clever use of warm wood finishes. In line with the changing seasons, the servers wear traditional kimonos and every classic dish is presented in rustic, handmade Arita-yaki earthenware.


The choice of cuisine at Yamazato is extensive and includes traditional Kaiseki Ryouri set menu dishes for dinner. The Kaiseki Ryouri dates back to the Japanese Imperial Court in the 9th century AD and has evolved into one of the world’s most popular forms of dining.


Yamazato also offers an impressive array of teppanyaki, sushi, and sashimi dishes, as well as an extensive à la carte menu. The dishes evolve with the seasons and the availability of the ingredients. The restaurant celebrates a number of popular Japanese festivals throughout the year with special set menus and à la carte dishes.


The first Yamazato restaurant outside Japan opened at Hotel Okura Amsterdam in 1971. The widely-loved venue has brought together Japanese and European culture. In 2002, the restaurant proudly became the first Japanese restaurant in Europe to earn a Michelin Star.


Yamazato 山里 is the combination of 2 Japanese Kanji characters: “yama” 山 meaning mountain and “zato” 里 meaning village. The mountain village is a classical Japanese landscape that showcases the land’s bountiful harvest.


True to its namesake, the Okura Hotels & Resorts’ signature Japanese fine dining restaurant Yamazato highlights the flavors of seasonal ingredients in all its dishes, using only fresh produce and seafood at its prime.



Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cooking derived from two words: teppan (iron plate) and yaki (grilled, broiled or pan-fried). At Yamazato, a teppanyaki counter allows guests to see their meals prepared in a stylish and authentic manner. Guests may enjoy watching close at hand the intricate work of our experienced teppan chefs.



Our Yamazato sushi chefs are exquisite in their techniques and attention to detail and quality. Menus from a wide variety of Japanese regions and eras are recreated using the finest fresh fish sourced from Tokyo’s Toyosu market. The dishes are paired with freshly- grated wasabi and authentic Japanese condiments.



Yamazato offers an extensive sake list that encompasses all major regions, as well as Japanese beers. Our wine cellar embraces the very best from the old and new worlds and our servers are on hand to suggest the best possible complement to each dish.
