Chef Mitsuhiro Araki

Born and raised in Kyushu, Mitsuhiro Araki grew up around food. In 2000, he opened his own restaurant in Setagaya and after another ten years, he moved his restaurant to Ginza where it immediately gained three Michelin stars within the same year. Shortly after, in 2013, Araki decided to set himself a new challenge and moved to London to start all over again. He quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with as he incorporated local English ingredients into his menu, and by 2016, was awarded his first Michelin star and The Araki was named by Tatler Magazine as the best Japanese restaurant in London in their restaurant guide, while the Harden’s Guide named it the best restaurant in the UK. By 2018, he had regained his three-star status.

Now, Hong Kong will finally have a chance to see what one of the world’s greatest sushi masters can offer when he challenges himself.
