Visited here on a stopover in Tokyo in November and am still thinking about the great food and fun evening my fiancé and I had there. The ingredients are laid out in front of you and chefs collect the food on wooden paddles, cook it, then serve to you, while kneeling down the whole time. The food was delicious and... More

The freshest, tastiest culinery experience on the planet in a unique setting. One of the great landmarks in this amazing city. Only draw back is it's very pricey, I paid US $ 1,200 for a party of six.

This place is a scam, it might ad well be a mafia organization. They push you to order as much as they can...we got suspicious and checked the prices before ordering. They told us ¥4,000 for a few pieces of grilled tuna, which we accepted, and then we proceeded with extreme caution. Once the bill arrived, my blood pressure shot... More

Here, you can enjoy all kinds of seasonal foods. "Robatayaki" means "grill" with only salt and sometimes a little of soy-sauce, so you can enjoy pure taste of the each ingredients. Its a little spendy, 8000yen-1000yen for a dinner, but if you consider the atmosphere and how the staff entertains you, it is worth going. Drew Barrymore visited here when... More

The largest Scallops I've ever seen; please do try the Red Snapper (see the surprised look on its face on the photo!), the enoki mushrooms, the gingko nuts, the scallops and the prawns. I'm sure that the meat is nice but we wanted to only have Seafood and Vegetables that night.

Inakaya means "in the country". This is guaranteed to be the most memorable dining experience in Tokyo. All of the food is cooked directly in front of you, and the freshness is outstanding. Inakaya has everything Japanese you are looking for....sushi/sashimi, beef, yakitori, seafood, fresh veggies, good beer and excellent sake. Try the Kinki (Pacific Ocean Perch) unbelievable, Sasakama, Shitake... More

Inakaya certainly is good fun, and the food is very good indeed. Having said that, I did not find the experience very relaxing because you have no idea what you are letting yourself in for, and that could be very expensive in Tokyo. I do not mind paying for good food, but when I feel I might be taken for... More

It was fun. Saw it in a guide book rated as great and $$$. We just ordered food and what they recommended. We got a lot but not too much and our bill came out to $1400 for four people. We where a bit surprised as we went to an exclusive michelin star rated restaurant for around the same price.... More
