Chinese Restaurant Sairaiken

Niseko has no shortage of great Japanese dining, but when you want a little change of pace, one of the best options is this quirky restaurant serving delicious Chinese food inside a geodome, one of the more interesting buildings in the Niseko area. The restaurant is run by an older couple who are dedicated to providing simple, high quality Chinese dishes, often made with local ingredients. One wonders what the inspiration behind the geodome construction was. Perhaps a way to deal with the high levels of snowfall in winter? The setting is quite unique, and the service is warm and friendly, albeit primarily in Japanese only. Those who don’t speak much Japanese will have to content themselves with a few basic words in English and pointing to the pictures on the menu. Prices are reasonable, and the volume of food is enough to fill one up even after a morning of strenuous Niseko activities. The restaurant is located on Route 66 in between the Niseko Village and Annupuri resorts, and features dishes such as pork fried rice, ramen noodle soup, chili shrimp, eggs over fried rice and spring rolls.
