HIlarious fun

I went with friends and like most reviewers above we had a great time but a bit shocked at the bill.... We stumbled across it while trying to please two vegetarian teens and three hungary adults... no menu no prices.. good beer and saki and the delivery of your order leaves you wanting and ordering... read more

I went there for a quick dinner and I have to say it is really a fun restaurant. A big table, the chefs sitting in the middle, cooking nice dishes, every dish is announced with a Japanese salute and served on large wooden tray. Sounds good so far…what was not so nice was the bill of 18.000 Yen for five... More

Absolutely fun filled way of dining - alive and interactive. You are part of it...participating not just sitting down and waiting for a meal. Chefs and staff are so passionate with the tradition they are acting out. Everything is fresh...vegies, seafood and meat. The Kobe beef BBQ is so amazing...melting in your mouth tender and juicy...tasty every bite. The prawn... More

Wonderful food and theatre. Having been warned of the price it was still bit of a shock but we enjoyed every moment. Majestic chef presiding over his master bbq and cooking what you point at, so fresh that one of the dancing prawns jumped onto the grill itself! Abalone, beef, fresh bamboo shoots etc all there together with local [business... More

We had made our reservation at Inakaya West before we left on vacation. It had been recommended by two acquaintances. One, who had lived in Tokyo maybe 15 years ago, another who had visited more recently. Given this, we didn't do our own homework. The food was good to excellent, and it's got a unique style which was fun. The... More

Very bad food, you can eat much better Japanese food in European Cities or NY at half the price. No menu, no prices and your bill total is a sort of a magical number based on your look. ¥79,140 for 2 adults and one child. Don't go there and if you go you will write the same review.

Went there because we stay in rappongi and also happened to be in a guide. This place felt like a scam, the very first time i had this feeling in japan. Not for the experience but for the price and the lack of transparency and business ethics. First of all there is no menu so clients are totally unaware of... More

This place is a scam wrapped in warm service and a cool atmosphere. If you decide to dine here, please do yourself a favor and persistently ask for a menu with prices. The scam here is that the waitstaff will suggest various dishes by pointing to the food, and some of them come at absolutely outrageous prices. 700 yen (~$6)... More

I don't really write tripadvisor reviews--in fact, this is the first time I've been so inspired that I could not wait to write one. All in all: we were swindled. To start, you don't get a menu, and upon entering they are extremely pushy about ordering to your heart's content. "Do you want prawns? Beef? Fish?", says one of the... More
