Amazing experience

Great food, service, ambience. The marbled Kobe beef was probably the best thing I have ever tasted.

This is the best Teppanyaki in Tokyo. Dining here is always a pleasant experience. The food is first class and the service is of the highest standard. We always take overseas guests here confident it will deliver the “wow factor” and it does without fail! I recommend Teppanyaki over any other Japanese restaurant in Tokyo. Thank you to the chef...

I've been coming here for years (12 or 13) and have always had an excellent meal. The restaurant is both formal and surreal with major decorations in hammered copper in a slightly underwater world way. Think Farallon in San Francisco but in metal. The meat is always very good, but the seafood is often the star: abalone, scallops and crab... More

It took a little while to find but actually quite easy as the website's directions are correct. The entrance certainly is very grand and interesting, most guests were finely dressed even for lunch, a lot of jackets, pearls and coiffed hair. we were more casual though appropriate, but the service staff did not discriminate. They offered to store our shopping... More

I've dined at this place quite a few times over the last 5 years, I have many wonderful memories both as a couple and with more guests. The restaurant has some kind of classical feel to it, almost bordering to tacky. My mouth is instantly watering when I'm thinking of all the great meat and fish I've eaten at this... More

Best teppanyaki in Japan! The only Michelin-Star teppanyaki restaurant in Japan. Ordered the set meanu. Super generous portions, probably gained 10 pounds after this meal but so worth it! Everything was so delicious!

My wife made the booking and we went for a teppanyaki lunch. We were seated at the teppanyaki counter of course where we can see how each course was made. The course we selected was plenty and the service was absolutely amazing, will go again if I visit Tokyo. The waiting area before seating is like a personal museum by... More

My Tokyo guide suggested this Teppanyaki restaurant as I had a sudden craving for the best Japanese beef whilst walking in Ginza. I had no prior knowledge of this venue. Teppanyaki is not just about great food - it is the atmosphere, the service as well as whether the chef is skilful in both cooking and conversation. Our chef was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
