We tried for a lunch. Meals and service are very nice. Enjoyed a little tour of the building when we arrived and a walk in a traditional Japanese garden after the meal. So peaceful right in the middle of Tokyo. Will definitely try it again and would recommend especially to overseas visitors.

Just at the corner of Tokyo tower, you will be able to time slip approximately 100years. Wonderful surrounding, yummy dinner we enjoyed. We felt as we were inside of Samurai movie.

This is one of the best restaurants that I've been in Japan. Their most famous dish is Tofu, however, their traditional Japanese set was all so yummy. You can feel the difference when you enter the restaurant from entrance, a whole team of staff welcomed you and with this first class service, you feel you're the most VIP there. Traditional... More

Traveled in Japan near the end of March, 2014. We met fellow tourists that suggested we try the Tokyo Shiba Tofuya Ukai. They were impressed with the gardens, food and presentation. Their impression was justified on all counts. The fact that we booked at the height of the cherry blossom season only added to the "theatre of dinning" as mentioned... More

From my travel journal of my visit to Tokyo, March 30, 2014: Our reservation was for 6:30 pm at Tofuya Ukai situated just beneath the white and vermillion Tokyo Tower. As it turned out, a spectacular traditional Japanese restaurant, that took the form of a vast villa-like setting within walls, dotted with beautiful gardens and several dining pavilions. Everything was... More

Dined here as part of a business meeting with a large group and found it to be quite good! They have effectively created a beautiful garden setting on the grounds of the Tokyo Tower. Make sure you book/request a tour of the garden/facility as it is not to be missed. Service and food were excellent and this is coming from... More

This restaurant specialises in tofu -- you can have it in any shape or form, all delicious and wonderfully presented. I was invited by Japanese friends, and we sat in a little room with a stunning view on the beautiful garden. Service was impeccable: style and smile. It all felt exactly as it should -- the perfection of a Japanese... More

Ok, the service is great. Required a reservation. It s not your everyday restaurant to have a meal so once in a lifetime it s ok to experience something like this. Pricey- but that s what you get for its uniqueness. Waiters were very nice! Explained all the details bout each dish! Totally recommend to try it while in Tokyo.

We went to this restaurant as guests of some Japanese colleagues and they couldn't have picked a more beautiful setting. A typical Japanese restaurant set in some lovely gardens with dozens of private rooms for exclusive dining. We had a tasting menu which inuded the tofu in soy milk, beef, sashimi and much else as well as sake, beer and... More

Set in a tranquil garden near the Tokyo Tower, but a lifetime away from the bustle of Tokyo. Serene and peaceful environment welcomes you and then you are taken along traditional passages to your own private and very traditional Japanese room.Shoes off, personal serving, detailed explanation of every dish and debates about the type of Sake required that would make...
