We decided to have dinner at Salt out of curiosity. The restaurant seemed to be very busy every time we were in the area. The service was good. We opted to get the dinner course. What I liked most was the presentation of the dishes...very creative and daring. Overall, it's a very good place to splurge for a dinner.

We stepped into Salt almost by accident looking for a place to have our last dinner in Tokyo before our midnight flight back home. It was great. Ample choices of everything, good service ( except for that yelled greetings at group's members...what is that all about?), nice decor but that is not the focus point, and good flavors. I had...

A family outing to celebrate our grandaughter's first birthday. The restaurant presented a lamington with one candle and there was a music box playing "happy birthday." Being opposite Tokyo station makes Salt easy to find. The staff were helpful and attentive. The fixed price (3000 yen) menu had a good range of choices reflecting Australian cuisine. We were all very... More

was here for my wifes birthday one sunday lunch. good service, you see the waiters were making an effort to speak english. the traditional quality japanese service though felt a little weird when mixed with modern style - such as explaining every dish you are getting. anyway, food was good, service was nice so nothing to complain about. a bit...

We had eaten at this restaurant several years ago and decided that we should return given we had some layover time in Tokyo. The restaurant looks tired and dated, the walls are marked from the removal and replacement of artwork on the walls. The service seems indifferent and the menu was very limited on the night we ere there. This... More

Very creative and tasty food with a European flair. Very convenient to the Tokyo station. The ingredients were very fresh and the flavors exotic. English speaking staff in a very pretty setting made the whole experience a pleasure. One of the best meals we had in Japan.

The service was excellent with a very attentive waitress who doled out the wine perfectly. The food was good but rather fussy and, for nowadays, a bit pretentious. Not rabbit food but rather different (if you hadn't been there before) from the menu description. We had the ¥4300 set menu and, if you had every course, it was about enough.

Having been faithful to Japanese cuisine for nearly a week we fancied a break. So we opted for Salt restaurant in Maronouchi and were tempted by the menu and location with views. All I can say is that the wagyu beef burger was good - most else was average at best, exemplified by a salted caramel ice cream that had... More

Salt is well located in Marunouchi. The ingredients are quirky and cooked to everyone's liking. This is clearly a restaurant which benefits from being run by Japanese chefs. You would not find this attention to detail in Sydney. The serving staff are excellent, sans the Sydney waiting staff's necessary haughty attitude.

I was quite excited to happen across Salt in Tokyo having loved the Sydney branch for many years. The beef was tough, the 3 courses were very underwhelming, the drinks had lots of ice in them. The service is great, the food really lets the place down. It's obvious this branch doesn't have the owners on site attention. On the... More
