Very popular place with healthy, Moroccan/Greek/Portuguese cuisine. I have never had anything on the menu that I don't like. Accommodating, helpful staff (unless you have kids, they are not welcome unless you are willing to pay extra to be shoved into a private room)

The food was excellent. Servers were visible when needed and absent when not needed. Good selection of dishes. Everyone in the group enjoyed their dinners. We had a private room upstairs which was quiet to facilitate conversations among everyone.

We walked in off the street, turns out they are booked most of the week. We ended up eating outside under an umbrella. they bring you a blanket. We had the hummus which is some of the best we have ever had. We both ordered the chicken tagine, we could have split the order. Tagine was delicious, fresh ingredients, filling.... More

Menu has good variety and we ordered 4 different items each if which was very well prepared. Humus and bread was a great starter. The highlight was the Portuguese chicken that was extremely tender and delicious.

As per my heading. We were very well and patiently looked after and amongst the memorable little tapas were the lamb cutlets with anchovy, the squid stuffed with minced Parma ham and the Harissa dip, not to mention the delicious bread. I thoroughly recommend it as an informal venue.

Went for happy hour and had great time. Very cool outdoor and indoor vibe off back street of Omedesando. Terrific tapas menu, good beer and wine and cocktails. My favorite is the bar area near the front. Will go back again!

Cicada has the best hummus in Tokyo, but ever since they moved to the new location it seems impossible to make a reservation. The Minami-Aoyama location has a beautiful outdoor terrace and mediterranean interior. Definitely worth going, but make sure to call in advance. There is also a small bakery next door, which is also owned by TY Harbour.

Cicada is a heaven if you fed up with far eastern food. They serve Mediterranian and Italian dishes. Food and service quality was perfect , you can either sit inside or in the garden (covered) both non smoking .

Knocked a star off due to the poor service. Cicada is part of the TY Express family, and all of their restaurants are located in prime areas around Tokyo and have great sophisticated ambience. However, most of their restaurants could use better staff. Having waited tables for years myself, I just think it's unacceptable for a place that charges 1000... More

Staff is over complicating matters and a simple reservation takes 15 minutes. They hate children below 6 and you can only bring them if you book a room where you get locked away but need to pay JPY 3,000. The criss cross also now need you to register on a list before you can sit down to enjoy an overpriced... More
