As everyone who has travelled in Japan will know, it's not always easy to order a meal at a restaurant if you're not familiar with the Japanese language. This restaurant was the only place where we found fluently English speaking waiters. Also, of course this place is famous for its appearence in the Kill Bill movie, and one must say... More

We arrived at Gonpachi on a cold Friday evening in February around 7pm without reservations. The restaurant was very busy but, luckily, we only had to wait five minutes for a table. The restaurant is very noisy and the custom is for the staff to shout whenever people arrive! Fortunately we were with a Japanese friend who guided us through... More

Don't come here for a quiet meal! But if you are looking for something fun and a fun place to eat with a group of friends, this is your place. The food was terrific - we got a little bit of a lot of different things. Lots of good choices for sake. We tried several of those as well. We... More

We visited Gonpachi after a very long day of sightseeing all over Tokyo. This was a great place to relax, enjoy a couple of beers, and sample our first real Japanese food in a comfortable setting.

Are you a fan of Tarantino? Then you must go to the restaurant where the Kill Bill fighting scene was ideated. While the food quality is not outstanding, the atmosphere inside is very nice. 2000¥. Check our foodie review of Japan in http://www.ebc.cat/2014/06/13/practical-japan-for-foodies/

This place is famous for having the interior that inspired Quentin Tarantino to the big fighting scene in Kill Bill: Vol 1. You won't be disappointed! The place looks great! The staff is friendly and helpful and the food was good and very cheap. Eat dinner here instead of lunch, it was not to many people here during lunch and... More

Fun, buzzy atmosphere with a mix of locals but mainly expats and tourists but don't let that put you off. The service was great, the vibe funky and there was a good selection of dishes - all pretty good. It was also great value for money with wine (which is normally the killer) at very reasonable prices. I had a... More

I was excited about the idea of eating in the same restaurant of movie kill bill .. But when I tried the food I found that it worth for sure .. But... More

Good Izakaya, but not the best. Chain restaurant that got it right. Decor is wonderful. Food is good. Very crowded. I expected better.

Gonpachi is a great place and the environment is fun. Food is good. BUT service was really poor. Not enough staff for the number of guests. Waiters are running all over, tables are left with dirty dishes, long wait time and clearly lack of attention. It is a pity and in my view a missed opportunity for a long term... More
