Yes, it is expensive. But some of the best food I have eaten in Tokyo came from here. And I have been multiple times over multiple years. The wagyu beef is amazing. The atmosphere and service are fantastic.

as other reviews has said, ask k for the menu, make sure you know how much each item is!!! When we received the bill, we felt absolutely disappointed!! Big surprise when we received a bill of £100 for a standard dinner, we had vegetables( 1 mushrooms and 1 asparagus) Sirloin and chicken.. Service is nice but you can get bored... More

We adored this restaurant. We were with a group, so we called in advance and practically had the whole restaurant to ourselves. We paid a fixed price, including beer and sake. I know it was expensive, but what a night!!! It felt so wonderfully foreign. The huge slabs of food that were presented were all absolutely delicious. We all enjoyed... More

This was one of those places that we kind of knew you're in trouble from the start. Saturday night at 7:30 and there are only two other couples in the place, one local and one western. We get seated and immediately are asked how many sakes and beers we want. We went with the "highly suggested" no name sark they... More

First off, it's not cheap. Don't come here looking for a budget bite. But do come here if you appreciate a great show, great food and great service. If you are nervous of the cost you can ask to see a menu. We didn't, but it was still worth it. Our chef was personable, friendly, and not at all pushy... More

We wanted a fun "Benihana" type Japanese place to eat to on our last night with the kids in Japan. Our concierge suggested this place and we were not disappointed. It is expensive (about $400 for our family of 4) but well worth the money. They specialize in grilling your food in front of you and passing it to you... More

This old style Robatayaki restaurant is a great show for the tourists and is a style of country cooking that many Japanese eschew unless they are entertaining foreign visitors. Yes, it is hugely expensive if you go through the entire menu, and if you are on a limited budget it is probably best avoided, although you could say you were... More

We ate here not knowing anything about it. On entering it looked like a full dinner show was in progress so we were intrigued and sat down. We weren't offered a menu so just started ordering away. The chefs were great, both in cooking and putting on a show. Service was attentive too. Towards the end of the meal, one... More

Along with what other negative reviews have said - ask for the menu, make sure you know how much each item is. Went there our first night ever in Tokyo on the recommendations of a couple friends, and we felt duped. The Red Snapper was 100usd, and it did not taste good - very fishy. Of course nothing from the... More

This is a Robantayaki restaurant - quite different style. We were lucky we got there early (7pm) as the place was packed and the chefs and staff were in full show - calling out orders, collecting and serving food with 2m paddles and grilling whatever we pointed at. Simple food and delicious! Be warned - if you avoid fish, seafood... More
