My Japanese cousin insisted on taking us to eat robatayaki - something I've always wanted to experience and do not regret. This is a place for tourists and salarymen on expense accounts, not your typical dinner out. Very fine dining prices without the fine dining accouterments. It is fresh, nutritious food served in an atmosphere of showmanship. There are plenty... More

This is an action-filled restaurant, where there are two chefs sitting behind the counter and grill your food (seafood, stake, vegetable) there in front of you and simply hand the dish over to you whenever it's ready. There are plenty of food on display we ended up ordering more than we needed. Booking is a must as there are only... More

Nice place to take out of town guests but keep in mind you are paying for the atmosphere and food quality. I've been here a few times and the food quality has always been consistent. No complaints. We had steak, fish, prawns, assorted vegetables and sake and our bill was around $350 for two..... Yes it is a bit high... More

This is one of my world favourite restaurants - but even calling this a restaurant may be misleading - this is a robatayaki, where small portions of meat, fish or vegetables are slow-grilled to perfection on smoking charcoal by chefs sitting in front of you. The diners sit around a counter with the chefs sitting behind the choice of fresh... More

I was surprised our hotel sent us to Inakaya East (Roppongi Inakaya). The restaurant was clearly a tourist trap. It was foreigners-only and no menus or prices were given. You pointed to what you wanted from the beautiful display of foods in front of you and the lively chefs grilled them up. The food quality was good, though we've had... More

First of all, this place is indeed expensive. I normally research restaurants before going to them, but our boss recommended this place at the last minute and thought we would just go. We didn't even bother asking for a menu while we were there so we just went for it. But walking in you can tell you're about to spend... More

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
