I was expecting more, but the restaurant was quite empty and although the food was very good, the service was too fast. Friendly, as one would expect, but too fast. I felt that they were trying to hurry me along to clear the table, even though they were not busy

We ate at the Kaiseki restaurant at Wadakura (there are four restaurants in one). This is really for Japanese food lovers. I had the best dining experience of my life, while my partner complained that the food tasted "bland" and "werid". I am a firm believer that when food is fresh, it doesn't need to hide behind sauces, seasoning and... More

We ordered from the a la carte menu and tried the tempura and sushi. Portions were tiny and prices were high. The 8 piece sushi plate was $90 and it It looked like it was thrown on the plate without much thought or care. The fish was fresh, but that shouldn't be difficult with the world's largest fish market 5... More

PALACE HOTEL give you four options to have Japanese food.. WADAKURA where I went and TATSUMI ( tempura) GO (teppanyaki) and KANESAKA ( sushi). I recomend WADAKURA because they have a la carte menu and you have multiple choices.. The dinner was great accompanied with a good hot sake. This place is for a real JAPANESE FOOD LOVERS.

My search for real Kobe beef in Tokyo ended successfully here. Hidden away in an office building in Ginza, this tepinyaki restaurant was recommended by my hotel's concierge. The service was average and the preparation workmanlike but the meat was well worth the sky high price. Buttery soft, melt in your mouth good. I don't think I can ever enjoy... More

Very good foods, we took the set dinner menu which had over 7 courses with each being tastier than the one before. Great selection so Saki as well. Its a pricey meal but worth it every once in a while. For sure will go back!
