Touristy but good food

We visited Nishiazabu Gonpachi as part of a business trip. It was recommended based on the fact that my colleague hadn't been to Japan very often and therefore might be interested in trying some Japanese food. The food was good (e.g. various skewers, rice, noodles). On a Sunday night, the... read more

The atmosphere was great. It was about 80% tourists I would say and the restaurant was full so book if you can. We waited for a seat at the bench so we could watch the cooking. We had the middle priced set menu for 2 and I personally would next time choose a selection from the charcoal grill menu. It... More

I live in Tokyo and often take friends visiting from overseas here. The food is fairly reasonable and tasty enough. The staff are always quick to come help. I recommend the wagyu skewers. We paid about Y5,000-Y6,000.

We read about Gonpachi in a guide book and despite the hubbub about Kill Bill, decided to have lunch here. What a great decision! To say the interior of the building is impressive is an understatement. Dark wood, smoke coming off the grill as chefs cook in front of diners, employees shouting greetings as they welcome new diners. A feast... More

Gonpachi is a jewel owned by Global Dining. This company know the restaurant business inside out and you can experience a part of Japan long gone when you enter this retro themed establishment. Extensive menu and all the Japanese classic forms of cooking right in front of you. Great for a family night out.

I went in with lower expectations as I knew it was touristy and a big gimicky because of the movie. However I would say it was our best meal in Tokyo! Fast and friendly service, a great seating arrangement as you can watch the chefs hard at work, and an extensive menu to suit all tastes. Would definitely return a... More

A great venue with amazing decor, really good food, fast friendly service (most of whom speak some English) and it's all set in a look-alike Kill Bill setting!

If you're a tourist in Japan, forget about the snobbish reviews by gaijin who live in Japan - this place has a great atmosphere and great food regardless of the "Kill Bill" movie experience. We were there this evening. The service is great (thanks Benny!), and the food is excellent, and we highly recommend it.
