The setting is truly beautiful, in the gardens under tokyo tower. When we went it was raining heavily but nonetheless staff waited outside the restaurant doors to welcome and usher guests with umbrellas. Truly inspiring and still interiors you feel like you have stepped back in time. Food is delicate in flavour, and every dish has some tofu in one... More

Ukai tofuya is always a treat; from the service to the setting outside to the rooms inside and the incredible attention to detail in the good and it's presentation.... I have eaten at two other branches of this chain and each time, it is a taste sensation and more

Excellent service. Beautiful surroundings. Only private rooms which are great with kids. Set menus, no alacarte. Food is hit or miss but authentic for foreigners.

Felt like back in time in an old manor in ancient Japan, beautiful gardens and ponds. Escorted by well trained and polite staff to our private room where serving our dinner. It was a mix of sashimi, vegetable, beef and toufu of course. The food was at its expected very high quality. The dinning experience at Shiba Toufu Ukai was... More

Best view - especially in the evening as the restaurant is directly under Tokyo tower, traditional atmosphere ,great service. Menu is not only tofu.... Rather expensive so recommend lunch which is very reasonable and similar dishes to dinner menu are served . A must go if visiting Tokyo.

My sister in law booked this as a birthday surprise and it was a wonderful experience. Quiet and peaceful (a rare thing in Tokyo) in your own private tatami room, the ambiance really sets off the delicious multi course menu. We had the Matsu menu for lunch which included a few different tofu dishes as well as soups, vegetables, grilled... More

"You get what you paid for" rings true everywhere you go in Japan. This is especially the case at Tofuya. This would be considered as 'Kaiseki', which means a traditional Japanese meal with multiple courses. Food was amazing, 3 sets to choose from (Fish, Beef or Vegetarian), ranging from roughly 8,000 to 12,500 yen. Drinks were roughly 1,000yen each depending... More

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
