This restaurant experience was exceptional and an immersive experience is exactly what it was. Think Heston Blumenthal and of that ilk yet this is readily available to the public with amazing and incredible dishes that work very well from a taste and visual perspective. This is the 2nd best restaurant in Asia and ranked in the top 50. From the... More

Spoiler alert: the below review discusses some unannounced dishes which may ruin your element of surprise should you eat at Narsiawa, Tokyo. Don't wear perfume. Do not be late. You will have the tasting menu. Right. For a reservation that is so coveted in the world of fine gastronomy, this was an intriguing start. I had yet to be written... More

I had such hi hopes for this place, but it is not the foodie experience that I wanted and NOT the dinning experience I wanted. I had the regular chef course with a wine parring and was disappointed overall. I was happy that the Chef was working and really happy that he came out to our table and said hi,... More

We'd had a shockingly poor dinner at a supposed three star Michelin restaurant in Kyoto the night before visiting Narisawa and was thus it was with slight trepidation that we went to Narisawa. We shouldn't have worried, the whole experience was outstanding! From bread that's cooked at your table, to what looks like a forest floor that's presented as a... More

My overall impression of this restaurant is that the owner has decided that his art is more important than the gustatory experience of the food. My wife and I visited and ordered the lunch prix fixe menu with wine pairings. I'll divide the rest of my review into pros and cons: Pros: They have a fantastic pastry chef. The desserts... More

Me and my partner came to Japan to try five of the best restaurants it had to offer - as we knew this country was ahead of all in terms of delicacy mixed with fusion. And thus over all Awesomeness/Epic-ness was available. And I am happy to say that Narisawa was the best!!! And very to have gone here last... More

Came here for lunch to save a few dollars. Was not too crowded. Food was amazing. The squid with the dry ice and paprika sauce was my favorite, unlike anything I had ever had before. Be ready to spend a few hours here and save room for dessert. We got an extra course and they brought us cake for our... More

Me and my mom dined at Narisawa last year in the fall and I'm only writing about it now since we're going back to Japan soon and would love to eat here again! It was a lovely dining experience. The service was excellent and the food, phenomenal. I highly recommend this place and if you love food and are adventurous,... More

NARISAWA was a fantastic experience and they were more than helpful with some of our food preferences. My wife does not eat any red meat or pork and she was able to adjust her meal to exclude those items (e.g., move to a fish for her main course). For a fixed course meal, that is very helpful and appreciated by... More
