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

Nothing can prepare you for the Kagaya experience. It is raw and at times in your face, but one of those must do experiences in Tokyo! I haven't laughed so much in ages- and I mean huge belly ache laughs with tears running down my face! The venue is tucked away downstairs of a tall building but isnt too hard... More

Hidden at the bottom of a tall building in Minato, Tokyo lives Kagaya, a one man show with many faces. If you came to Japan for the weird and wonderful then you'll love this. Please make a reservation when you arrive in tokyo, best time would be around 8pm as it closes at 12am and takes roughly 2 hours, make... More

WOW! Just go. Do not dare visit Tokyo without visiting the incredible Kagaya! Such a surprising, fun and unique experience, with wonderful, reasonably priced and varied food in generous portions too. Our favourite dining experience of many during our time in Japan!

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.
