Known for Kill Bill & George Bush visit, was good but feel a little touristy!

I saw this show up on a few lists. Basically it is known for having inspired the scene in Kill Bill. Apparently Japan's prior prime minister also took George Bush here. So I thought we must visit. Plus, I wanted to experience a true Japanese Izakaya. The exterior and interior of the restaurant... read more

I've been many times in Tokyo and I usually go to Gonpachi in Shibuya, but last time I tried the famous Gonpachi in Minato, the location of the movie Kill Bill and I have to say that even if is full of tourists but the food is amazing and prices are not very high. In particular is incredible the meat... More

I was slightly wary visiting this place after many of the negative reviews regarding the service, but we had an overall good experience. Like many other foreign visitors, it was the idea of this restaurant being the template for the House of Blue Leaves in Kill Bill that made it a curiosity. Both the exterior and the interior of the... More

Had a good night here after a day of shops and sites. Well worth the visit. Food was pretty good and the atmosphere made it a fun evening. You need to book in advance, as we struggled to get in, so took an early booking.

We got to the restaurant and there was hardly any one in. The food was nice and the atmosphere was incredible but overall I was a little underwhelmed. There is a shrine to Kill Bill and its clear to see how Quentin Tarentino got his inspiration for the 'Crazy 88' scene.

It s quite a touristy place but there are lots of japanese people as well.It s a little pricy as well but there is an unbeatable ambiance.I tasted only vegetarian food which was very tasty.You should reserve beforehand if you don t want to wait for a long time.Even weekdays.

Have had several nice dinners at this restaurant but over the years it seems to be going downhill and this visit was especially bad. The food was okay, as good as you can expect when they are trying to cover a few Japanese cuisines, but the service was shockingly bad. Items left off our order, both food and wine, and... More

Fast service, sumptuous salads and freshness served on sticks. An incredible Japanese meal staged in a marvelous setting. You will not go wrong coming here for business, on a date or being on vacation. And at $25/usd per head (drinks not included) you cannot go wrong.

Great location, must visit destination for people from out of town. Made extra famous for being the inspiration for the Kill Bill fight scene. Drink Sake with skewers and enjoy.

This restaurant serves good food, but you could easily find a better restaurant with the same food, for a much better price. Not to mention, the service is TERRIBLE! The majority of the staff are extremely rude and unpleasant. They give off such an attitude to the customers. It made me and my friends not want to order anything in... More
