Haru Bistro has polished concrete walls and an elegant interior that wouldn’t look out of place in Oslo or Copenhagen. The lights are kept low over the well-stocked bar, which has a decent wine list and serves cocktails, juices and whiskeys.

Chengdu-Expat food critic says…
…The own-chef Ada has created a modern European menu with hearty French bistro classics. We started with asparagus, pine nuts, and parmesan (¥58), which is served with a poached egg, and a zucchini and squid salad (¥68). There are also daily tapas boards with ham, cheese and salmon, served lashings of olive oil and balsamic.
Haru offers a range of salads, pasta and risottos, but the show stoppers come from the grill; their hand made pork sausages, with marinated pork belly and mustard (¥98) is aromatic and really something to write home about. The melt-in-the-mouth grilled sirloin with homemade fries (¥168), is also delicious.
