Serving elegant Japanese cuisine in a gorgeous setting, Gin Sai offers an incredible culinary experience for local foodies. Bringing seiromushi to Hong Kong’s biggest food lovers, Gin Sai is committed to providing diners with the most authentic Japanese cuisine that the city has to offer. This chic dining establishment can be found on the ground floor of The Oak Hill on Wan Chai’s Cross Lane, just steps from Wan Chai park.
Head chef Ogawa is proud to serve locals some of the finest Japanese cuisine that Hong Kong has to offer. Having worked in Michelin-starred restaurants around Japan and utilising skills gained from his travels, he’s an expert in his field, and that’s something diners can taste in the food on offer. The Wan Chai restaurant – on Cross Lane – is beautiful, and with seating for 80 guests, it’s perfectly suitable for hosting big groups, as well as private parties.
At Gin Sai, freshness comes first. One of the biggest draws to Gin Sai is the seiromushi, a dish that includes steamed meat and seasonal vegetables without the addition of seasoning – try the SEIRO-steamed Japanese Wagyu with assorted seafood and seasonal vegetables. Other favourites here include yakitori delights like chicken drumsticks or gizzards, as well as tempura abalone and Boston lobster. Of course, Gin Sai also offers great sashimi, including exotic options like geoduck and sea urchin with seaweed. Wan Chai’s Gin Sai has a huge following – make sure to do the right thing and book well in advance!

The food here was very good as always. The set meals for lunch are good value and varied from Grilled Black Cod, Eel Rice and Premium tempura which come with the seafood egg custard and some sashimi, salad, pickles, rice and miso soup. The Yakitori platter which we shared was tasty as was the Deluxe sashimi platter especially the Toro. However only downside was that they served the set meals first and followed with the sashimi which was disappointing. When asked to hold the remaining part of the set meal so we could have the sashimi platter they weren't able to accommodate. Lesson learnt always ask for the order of food. Would go again
Food was excellent, though a bit small for our appetite. We had set lunch: tempura on rice, sashimi, chicken teriyaki, Yuzu & raspberry sherbets, all were tastefully done. Service was good, restaurant was spacious and comfortable. Toilet was a bit small considering the size of the restaurant. Would definitely come back.
Helpful staff, good ambience, food ok, wine list a bit pricey so we skipped the drinks. But the lunch sets were not big enough for big belly eaters like us
