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...

In all my visits to Japan, this is a highlight. From the spectacular gardens to the exquisite traditional decor to the superb service and the delicious food, it will be an experience I won't forget for many years. The tofu in soy milk was a highlight.

If you enjoy a wonderful ambiance and a delicious and intriguing culinary experience, you will love this idyllic restaurant. We were guests and invited to join our host for lunch, little knowing what to expect. The restaurant flows through the classically designed and finish building through the extensive water garden to the individual tea-room which are laid out in a... More

We loved the ambience at this restaurant - diners have their own private rooms which are nicely decorated and each with a really nice garden view. The food was also good and service was impeccable. Will definitely recommend this place (especially if you are visiting the Tokyo Tower as the restaurant is really close to the Tower). Note though that... More

If you need to take a break and experience a good Tofu meal, head to this wonderful place. Located nearby the Tokyo tower in a large japanese garden, you might feel being in Kyoto already.

This restaurant is located next to Tokyo tower in urban area but once you arrive at the restaurant, all you notice is the spectacular garden. When you get in the building, all you will enjoy is authentic Japanese dishes in traditional Japanese style room.

I frequently visit the Ukaitei Tofu Restaurant in Shiba. It's a pleasant outlet to get out of Tokyo while your in it.....located so centrally, it's easy to access, has parking, is beautiful and peaceful and the food and wine selection is great. It's slightly expensive, but your dollars well spent. You'll always remember the experience and want more. It's foreigner... More
