We visited this restaurant during a Saturday in mid November. They did introduce me to the first Sake I ever learned to enjoy ("TOYO BIJIN"). We had a private dining room with truly outstanding service. Yet for the price of the Shizuka seven course, set price meal (12960 yen), I was a bit disappointed and expected more. Let me tell...

Wonderful ambience--great service. We had the blowfish ( fugu ) menu--presentation was delightful but we found the blowfish itself to be rather bland and lacking excitement, especially following some of our sushi experiences.

I loved everything about this restaurant from the decor to the cooks. Never have I ever in my life tasted such scrumptious delicacy's. When I go back to Tokyo this year, I will eat here again. Highly recommended.

I was skeptical as I have never had blowfish before and had no idea what to expect. However, I thought I would trust tripsadvisor as so many times before it has been right and indeed agian this time tripsadvisor did not fail. I have never had anything like this before.

I am glad I tried the fugu but I'm not sure what all the hype is about. Most of the dishes we had were flavorless. You had to dip everything in the ponzu sauce to give it flavor. The best fugu we had was deep fried. Tasted like a fried frog leg or fried chicken. The service was very good... More
