A Tourist Prop but If You Are a Tourist and You Liked Kill Bill...

More than 50% of patrons are Western tourists. Should I say more? Having said that, if you are first time in Tokyo and have limited time, heck, why not? The food is "acceptable" for an izakaya-style establishment. Although there are certainly many far better places, they might be hard to find... read more

On our son's advice we popped into the restaurant for a late lunch and had a delicious 5/6 course meal (I lost count!). All the dishes were excellent and were served at exactly the right pace for us to really enjoy our food and the service was friendly and efficient. I have never watched "Kill Bill" so am not aware...

We first became aware of Gonpachi by way of Tarantino's Kill Bill. The landmark restaurant was the inspiration for the House of Blue Leaves. We have now dined here two years in a row and it continues to be an experience not to be missed! The service is good and fast, the food is surprisingly affordable and the atmosphere is... More

I tried this restaurant with colleagues on a work trip recently. It's a popular tourist spot and it has a lively fun vibe to it, with decent service; the food is fine as well. Its main attraction seems to be its feature in a scene in the movie Kill Bill, which I haven't seen but which my colleagues found interesting.... More

I think the only reason worth going to this restaurant is the Kill Bill aspect. We ordered one of the set course menus and regretted it instantly. The food courses arrived at such a speed you couldn't eat one before the other arrived which meant you either rush them or they go cold. We had received the last course half... More

If it's a traditional Japanese atmosphere you're looking for and great, well prepared Japanese food with swift service then look no further. It will however cost you more than expected (even for Tokyo standards).

I went to this restaurant with 2 friends in October 2015 and it was an utterly disappointing experience - a REAL TOURISTIC TRAP. You see only foreigners (best sign of not being autentic). VERY OVERPRICED ( main course are just 3 skewers! !) service is bad as all they want is you to finish your meal and free up the... More

We went as a group of 6 overseas business associates. Our booking was at 9.15pm as the Gonpachi is very popular with tourists. Food was great as was the atmosphere. Sure there are more authentic places in Tokyo but if you have time is a great experience.

my friend brought me here for lunch one day and said it was from kill bill movie. lunch menu was somewhat limited but grill fish seems to be what everyone was ordering that day. I ordered bowl of unagi and rice. I think people come here for the ambiance. The food was average, we can get better elsewhere.

Gonpachi is solid quality nice ambient. But nothing special. Tokyo has much better stuff to offer. Go in thekill bill restaurant if you are interested otherwise dont waste your precious time in Tokyo.
