Move To Restaurant Info

Utilizing irresistably luxurious ingredients,
continuing more than 30 years of tradition

while always looking for unique, new flavours.

Loulan - an ancient kingdom that once sat astride the legendary Silk Road.

Ginza Ro-lan takes its name from that kingdom, and since opening in 1982, it has become famous for its Cantonese cuisine, attracting a great number of regular customers - including author Shotaro Ikenami.

The interior walls of the restaurant are decorated with stone sculptures that replicate cave paintings found along the Silk Road, creating an atmosphere that constantly evokes a sense of that historical highway.

China may have 4000 years of culinary history, but even in China, the Guangzhou (Canton) area, is known for its food, and Cantonese cuisine is well-suited to the Japanese palate.

The menu has a great variety with more than 150 different dishes, from high-class fare such as shark fin steak, bird's nest soup, abalone and sea cucumber, to the popular "five-ingredient fried noodles".

Kunihisa Okiyama explains their objective, "For more than 30 years, each successive chef as tried to protect the traditional flavours, and search for new unique flavours at the same time."

Regulars who visit two or three times a week are treated to different dishes each time, with careful attention paid to their preferences. Careful attention to detail is of the utmost importance here.

They are very passionate about living up to their guest's expectations, which is why they are always looking to produce new, off-menu dishes.

They are flexible in how they cook, adding changes where they can with Japanese ingredients like kombu, or adding blueberry liquor to give a dish a certain aroma.

They also hold a food fair with a different theme each month. The unveiling of the newest menu is always a highly anticipated event.

Interview

What is special about your ingredients?
One of the things we're most proud of is that we use lots of fresh, luxurious ingredients like shark fin, abalone, and spiny lobster. This is Chinese cuisine, and we do our best to cook and season it in a way that harnesses the true flavours of our ingredients.

With dishes like our salmon fried rice, which we top with salmon roe from Hokkaido, we hope our guests will enjoy the irresistability of the ingredients we use.
What do you aim for with your food?
For our regular customers who come two or three times a week, we serve them dishes that aren't on the menu. We can't give them the same thing every time, so we try to understand their preferences, and come up with something new every time.

Luckily, there are an uncountable number of dishes in Cantonese cuisine. With small changes, we can make an infinite array of food.
How did you come up with your speciality dishes?
I often eat out at restaurants that don't serve Chinese cuisine on my days off, but I'm always thinking about how to use their ingredients and methods to make Chinese food.

That's where the idea for shark fin steak came from. We take a tender, stewed shark fin then fry it in a wok and give the surface of the shark fin steak a spicy flair.
