An evening spent in an elegant and stylish space with excellent service at a hotel restaurant is the Christmas dinner situation of your dreams.

For such a memorable experience, we recommend The Lobby Lounge on the 28th floor of Shangri-La Tokyo, a hotel only a minute’s walk from Tokyo Station.

The large, open windows offer a beautiful view of the shining buildings and Sky Tree that symbolise Tokyo at night, making it the perfect place for Christmas dinner when you want to be more particular about the atmosphere.

We are also happy to provide soft sofa seats so that you do not get tired even if you spend a lot of time enjoying your dinner.

Another feature of this restaurant is that many of the menu items reflect the personality of the Shangri-La Group, which started in Singapore.

In addition to pasta, steak, and hamburgers, you can also enjoy Asian dishes such as laksa and chicken rice.

The fact that you can feel a bit like a gourmet traveller is another point that increases the sense of being in an extraordinary place.

The “The Lobby Lounge: Christmas Dinner” at Shangri-La Tokyo, priced at 16,500 yen, is a course that includes dishes from a variety of genres.

As this restaurant is famous for its afternoon tea, a luxurious three-tier appetiser stand is used, and the menu is trendy among women.

This course can only be reserved by phone or email, so please check the official website for details.

The detailed menu lineup is as follows:

  • Appetiser Stand: 8 appetisers, including duck and red wine spiced tart and raspberry salmon dill brioche
  • Main Dish One of beef Wellington or sautéed flatfish sabayon with champagne
  • Dessert: Santa Claus Mousse

The event will be held on 12/24 (Sat.) and 12/25 (Sun.) and will be served for two hours each day. In addition, a glass of champagne is included at the beginning of the course, and a set of free-flowing red and white wine is included, so this dinner course is especially recommended for those who love to drink.

Be sure to check out our Christmas afternoon tea, take-out Christmas dinner, and various other special Christmas-related courses.
