A must if you can get a table

I read about this place before I visited Tokyo and was also told about it. Nothing could have prepared me for the experience however. Too much information about what occurs would spoil the experience so all I will say is go if you can....you won't be sorry :)

Just go! The experience is unforgettable. An early visit or reservation is recommended. The Master is a true artist. P.S. Pick Bulbasaur, and order Oolong tea.

If you want to be entertained this is the restaurant to go to. You walk in to what looks like a relatively normal floor seating restaurant and greeted by a normal quiet waiter. Then walking to your seat the giggles and sniggers start from other patrons and you start wondering what have I gotten myself into. Stop reading reviews and... More

If you're thinking of visiting Kagaya, don't think twice, it's a trip to the mind of Master (owner and main event) and every cent is well spent here. Please bring all of your good vibes and the food is surprisingly good! A must-go! This man deserves an Oscar!

When we arrived we weren't too sure whether we had the right place. We were in a small brightly lit room with some floor tables and other guests sat round them. This looked too 'normal'... But no, a minute later the owner and waiter, Mark, a surreal Sacha Baron Cohen type character, starts singing something. I don't want to give... More

Silly, surprising, surreal. As a previous reviewer says, avoid reading too much about it and definitely avoid YouTube. Essentially you dine and are entertained intermittently by the owner's crazy antics. I foolishly had read a bit about the place, but I didn't tell my wife anything about it. Great fun.

The Master (the chap who runs Kagaya) should be a millionaire. The experience he offers is so unique and mind altering that you happily overlook the fairly average food on offer. I reckon it's only a matter of time until trendy sorts in Shoreditch in Brooklyn try to imitate kagaya but there can be only one master. I cannot recommend... More

Kagaya is, without question, one of the most hilarious, ridiculous and weirdest things I've ever seen and I absolutely loved it. Having seen my fair share of funny things, this is up with with co.edy performances worth flocking to Edinburgh for or anything by Sacha Baron Cohen - in fact, think of it as just that and get there without...

Mark's entertaining dinner experience is a one of a kind, only-in-Tokyo event. I've now been 3 times, and although his shtick doesn't change much, it's always fun. The meal will not be the highlight, but it is worth a visit.

One of the weirdest experiences ever! This is a restaurant with a difference. At first when you arrive it all seems relatively normal. Until Mr Kagaya turns on the crazy! Just producing the drinks menu was a crazy performance. We ordered our drinks and then had to choose in what style we’d like the drinks served (Brazillian, French, American, Japanese... 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.
