Kaikaya

Reviewed By Yasu K - Tokyo, Japan

We went there with a large group of people roughly 18. Very casual atomosphere, like an English pub, small tables with a lot of people squeezing in each other. Foods were mostly fish with a lots of varieties and fresh Wasabi (realy Wasabi so not so hot compared to normal tubed one with conservatives..). Sake was very nice pouring into a small glass with a box underneath (can you guess how to drink it?). Actually staff is pouring over the glass into the box so that you can drink a bit more! Finally cherry blossom icecream was awsome. Anyway, I would truly recommend the restaurant to non-Japanese tourists. Have fun!

Le Chateau de Joel Robuchon

Reviewed By mattywhisk - Sydney, Australia

Yes it's a very expensive night out - around $800 per person for the full dego including wines, but it's a once in a lifetime-style experience.
Beautiful building and intimate ambience, faultless and professional service, and immaculate food combinations. A focus on seafood and fresh salad elements, it's an amazing assault on the palate that leaves you reeling.
Wow!

NARISAWA

Reviewed By Randolph66 - Dallas, Texas


Experiencing Narisawa is a Must for anyone who wants to have a mind blowing experience when visiting Tokyo. This was one of my top five dining experiences of all time.
The food is extremely thoughtful celebrating the season and drawing inspiration from nature. The chef has an amazing gift in creating an innovative and sublime use of ingredients. The way he can transform and elevate flavors shows his love for the bounty of the season. Every single dish was better than the one before. There was never one that I did not crave or could pass. Every crumb was devoured!
Service is gracious and seamless.
The setting is an extremely simple setting that is elegant and without any distractions. You are captivated by the simplicity and the incredible detail in the food and presentation of the cuisine.

Omotesando Ukaitei

Reviewed By steveamcb - Bangkok, Thailand

Met up for lunch here with some old friends. We had our own room for Tempanyaki, and all of the food, even the sashimi starter, was amazingly good. Our Chef, Machida-San cooked everything to absolute perfection. The children's burgers were also delicious. For desert, we moved to an area used for afternoon tea, you have a choice of one dish then several small items off a desert trolley. All scrumptious! Admittedly not cheap but I would honestly say very good value for the quality of food and great experience that we had. When we're next in Tokyo, we will return for sure. Thank you very much!

Ichiran, Shibuya

Reviewed By Christina D

I went there with my family for lunch. We need to queue about half an hour. But it really is worth the queue. There's a sign that suggests to go to other Ichiran place, but at that time we still need to go around Shibuya so we decided to wait. For me it's the first time eating in that kind of place. Self service (the vending machine thing) and also private Seating. It's perfect for solo travelers who want some privacy. The noodle itself is very tasty and rich in broth. You can order extra noodle or dessert when you are already inside. Experience checked, tasty infamous noodle checked

Aoyama Flower Market Tea House

Reviewed By LQ101 - Perth, Australia

This place top the list of my favourite cafes in Japan. It's inside Aoyama flower shop near Omotesando. The interior is nicely decorated with seasonal flowers as if we're sitting in a garden and the matching menu is also beautifully presented with floral theme. It'd be perfect for afternoon tea.
I came for brunch and enjoyed the flower french toast. It's not only look pretty but also tasted really good. To avoid long queue, come just before the cafe open. I got a seat straight away. By the time I finished my brunch, the queue was already quite long.
I would highly recommend this cafe. Definitely a must visit!

Charcoal cuisine Kobe beef Ikuta

Reviewed By Ralf W

I had dinner at this restaurant the other night and it's a nice typical BBQ place.
When I was there, there were only foreigners in this restaurant and I guess that's due to TripAdvisor.
Kobe beef is not cheap here and honestly I think it is better to go to a Teppanyaki restaurant and have this special meat prepared by a professional.
When I put it on the barbecue the meat is never as good as it would be cooked by a Chef.
The service was very friendly and they speak English.
It was quite expensive and I would probably not go back to this place.

Hanno Daidokoro Bettei

Reviewed By LivinginBali_12 - Melbourne, Australia

A great place which we stumbled across by accident. First thing-this place hurts the back pocket. Because of that we only took one expensive cut of meat, a cheap one and the pork. Forget the pork. It was fatty and inferior compared to the beef. The beef was melt in your mouth. My only complaint is they brought out the expensive cut first and our palette was spoilt by the cheaper choices that followed. The staff were attentive and quick. A great place if you’re not on a budget

Found this place via the amazing recommendations from other Trip Advisor users! Find the set of lanterns, Walk down the stairs directly from the street and open the sliding wooden door. Cozy place and amazing food! It seems to be popular with locals, but they are extremely accommodating to foreigners with an English menu complete with photos and an explanation of how to make the most of your yakitori experience. Would highly recommend! Don't need Reservations, but arrive before 7:30 to ensure you get a seat!

Uobei Shibuya Dogenzaka

Reviewed By Nina C - Vancouver, Canada

This place is designed for tourists! The conveyor belt sushi is much more modern than the traditional type. The sushi is average quality and you can definitely find better sushi elsewhere in Japan... the dessert order is followed by a wheel of fortune game which allows for a game coin or a coupon if you win. I opt for the coin and you can get the toy egg using the coin at the exit.
