TOKYO - Conrad Tokyo's acclaimed Japanese restaurant, Kazahana, has been honoured by the prestigious Hotels magazine with a "Great Hotel Restaurants" Award, to be announced in its September issue.

"We are extremely proud to be recognized by one of the hospitality industry's most respected publications," said Masanobu Inaba, head chef at Kazahana. Since his promotion to lead Kazahana's culinary team last year, Inaba has introduced an exciting new creative edge to the celebrated restaurant. Inaba is especially renowned in food-obsessed Tokyo for his artistic and delicate blending of western ingredients and classic Japanese dishes.

"This award is the latest addition to a host of dining accolades which has made Conrad Tokyo a dining destination," says Gregor Andréewitch, general manager at Conrad Tokyo. "I am especially pleased that Chef Inaba and his dedicated team have been recognised for their passion for elevating Japanese cuisine to new heights. It is the people who make the experience dining at Kazahana so special."

The award recognizes restaurants that meet a strict set of criteria including authenticity, value for money and ambience. More importantly, the restaurant should be busy with both in-house and outside guests and not depend on celebrity chef or consultancy inputs - placing the focus firmly on the overall dining experience whether at a casual steakhouse or fine dining establishment.

The 'Great Hotel Restaurants' award was judged by a highly influential panel of culinary, hospitality and business personalities including Glenn Pushelberg of Yabu Pushelberg Design and Londonbased Ultratravel founder Nick Perry. The awards are independent and designed to recognize dining excellence.
