Located on the sixth floor of Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen, MATSUYI is the new Japanese restaurant that has opened its doors in December 2021. The luxurious design-led space combines a multitude of lively dining areas with a dynamic menu featuring the freshest local ingredients.
The restaurant’s name references to Japanese word matsu that means “pine tree” and which is the symbol of longevity throughout all four seasons. And in a further nod to Japan’s reverent relationship to time, MATSUYI ’s branding features the most beautiful of timepieces, the hourglass.
Inspired by his Japanese heritage, Head Chef Yutaka Matsuzaka brings a traditional Japanese craftsman spirit to the modern-meets-traditional menu. With a strong focus on fresh ingredients and culinary ingenuity, his “all-in-one” concept invites guests to taste an array of Japanese favorites including sushi, sashimi, yakitori and teppanyaki.
The MATSUYI team also provides professional food and sake pairing recommendations for each dish. The premium sake list is thoughtfully divided into the categories of Aroma, Crispness, Richness and Artisan to enable guests to integrate their drinking and dining experiences for the most authentic Japanese experience. And a further drinks specialty comes in the form of matcha, with innovative hand-shaken matcha.
The restaurant is characterized by a casual vibe with its entrance that has to be “discovered” and its striking outdoor glass house. Designed by award-winning visionaries, the space features kimono-printed glass and dark wood that complement the buzz of the live cooking stations and open bar area. In addition to the lively main dining room and glass house, MATSUYI also has a Private Dining Room where guests can choose from special menu and beverage selections to match their needs.
MATSUYI now is open to take reservations with limited seats available daily for lunch (11:30 am – 2:30 pm) and dinner (5:30 – 10:00) pm.
