Went there this evening and it is clearly on the tourist map because most of the people there were Europeans out to have a good time, and they did. Lots of shouting, led by the chefs, and everyone is expected to join in, and many do! The food was good, we had tempura, chicken and beef and it was prepared... More

I was invited to have dinner here by a vendor. One of our party has celiac and they had staff that spoke good English and understood "gluten free" so that was a pleasant surprise. As other reviewers have mentioned the food is good but not amazing and cost is reasonable for Tokyo. They had some decent wine at a reasonable... More

We ate at the restaurant as part of a cycling tour. We had a lot of fun! Food presentation was interesting, and quality was good. We really enjoyed the tempura. The soba water they brought at the end of the meal made for an interesting broth when pored into the dipping sauce. Good solid choice if you are uncomfortable with... More

Before travelling to Japan we were advised to visit this restaurant as it was the "inspiration" for the restaurant featured in the first Kill Bill film - although my partner who has watched the film remarked that she couldn't see any resemblance. As you enter there is a display of various famous people who have also eaten here - including... More

The restaurant is always crowded so you have to make a reservation; we made one and our table was available right when we arrived. The food is good, not amazing but good. It's not cheap but not expensive either, we ate for 8500 yen statrers main dish soft drinks and sake (a table of two). Clearly the meal in itself... More

We found a very nice atmosphere, and sitting in front of the kitchen was very entertaining, with all the cooks greeting at the same time every time a guest would leave. We had a good dinner and the restaurant itself is very nice, but I think you pay a little more than you should just because of the name of... More

I was looking for a lovely restaurant to take my Australian visitors. We loved this restaurant. The food and service were both fantastic.

Your first steps into this restaurant you will notice it looks very familiar to the fight scene in Kill Bill 1. The atmosphere is so very lively with lots of energy. Each time a customer is seated the waiter/waitress loudly says a phrase in Nihongo (Japanese) by which in unison the other waiters, waitress', cooks, and staff loudly reply a... More

Went here with a few friends not knowing what to expect, just excited to have a meal in the "Kill Bill restaurant." The restaurant itself was merely the inspiration for the fight scene in the movie Kill Bill. There are many photographs on the wall as you walk in of celebrities who have visited. The atmosphere is loud and energetic... More

We decided to try this as it's mentioned in The Lonely Planet as the inspiration for the Kill Bill fight scene in the Japanese restaurant and, it is, indeed, a feast for the eyes. Food is not the cheapest we had eaten, but you pay for the atmosphere. It's definitely worth a try and good fun.
