This is it!

If you love Japan, the culture and food. You must find time to dine here. Serene and impressive. Impeccable Japanese food and garden view right under Tokyo Tower.

I was impressed from the moment we arrived at the restaurant. It was raining really hard but the way they conduct you into the front entrance was theatrical enough. I can't say enough about the quality of the food or the wait people.

This restaurant is very famous among Japanese for their Tofu Kaiseki foods At he entrance , you will be eexciting the night senery of Tokyo tower and garden of the shop.

I must confess that, when it comes to restaurants, what impresses me is the food, not the environment around me. Yesterday, I had to make an exception to my golden rule, such is the beauty of the Tokyo Shiba Tofuya Ukai. The name says it all: tofu (well, that doesn't need a translation; ya = shop). The tofu is fantastic.... More

This restaurant is famous for their tofu kaiseki meal. Dish after dish is beatifiully presented by the lovely Kimono wearing women, the food itself was amazing. The outside garden was beautiful as well as the Japanese architecture. The staff knows some english so that helps with the communication. If you're in Tokyo i can't recommend this place.

One of my favorite places to treat myself in Tokyo. If you go to visit the Tokyo Tower, this is just a short walk away. The contrast between the two venues is stunning. The Tofuya (http://www.ukai.co.jp/shiba/) is a taste of the old Japan. Best when the weather is still warm - sit on an outdoor private tatami platform where you... More

We took the menu having different preparations of tofu, eel and beef. Everything was very well cooked and was excellent. We discovered tofu preparations and were quite surprised on how good seasoning can influence the taste of tofu. The place itself is quite magical: calm, a big garden and that in the busy center of Tokyo!

Incredible food. Stupendous environment. Top notch. Everything from start to fininsh was flawless. Would strongly recommend for anyone looking for great Japanese food in a stunning environment. Was treated to a dinner in the private room with my "Japanese" family--lived with them for a few years when I lived in Japan many years ago--so I am not sure of the... 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.
