To be included in the esteemed Michelin Guide, restaurants are assessed in five key areas; quality of ingredients, technique and flavour, originality, cost performance and consistency – all of which were to Michelin-star standards at Pierre. Helmed by Head Chef Susumu Okubo (left), who has worked in several three-star kitchens, and Executive Chef Tobias Gensheimer (right), who boasts extensive experience in top kitchens in some of Asia’s most luxurious hotels, the restaurant fuses modern French cooking techniques focusing on mainly using the freshest Japanese seasonal ingredients.

The Five Pavilions rating is the Guide’s highest accreditation for luxury hotels, with the rating based on providing guests with exceptional levels of service, design and comfort.
