Although it's true that they are many foreign customers, I'm not too sure why there are reviews saying this isn't "authentic" enough since I think all the dishes and drinks we ordered were very good and not overly expensive - the bill came to around 11000 yen for 4 people, including quite a few small dishes and drinks. Of course... More

Attended this Restaurant with a business group. Was told parts of the movie "Kill Bill" was filmed here. As entering, some of us were asked to sit downstairs (shoes allowed)Western style, while others was assisted upstairs (no shoes allowed) Japanese style. We had the upstairs. Our tables were filled with nothing but all sorts of raw fish. The downstairs had... More

If you are interested in this restaurant, because of Kill Bill... Am i right? if not then google it. This restaurant - in a different set like no kitchen, tables etc. just as a venue used in a scene in movie Kill Bill. So that was the exact reason that we went there. The location is easy to find, close... More

I am an American living in Tokyo. We always take visiting friends and family to Gonpachi - the menu is great for more non-adventurous guests, the menu is in English, the wait staff all speak English and the atmosphere is lots of fun. No, it isn't the most traditional Japanese cuisine, but the food is delicious and our guests always... More

Went for a dinner midweek in a large group and enjoyed the meal greatly. We were seated upstairs overlooking the restaurant which was busy with a number of tourists eating there by the look of it. The food was good and service excellent, with a steady continuation of dishes being brought to our table and not much time waiting. The... More

If you are looking for a completely inauthentic izakaya experience in Tokyo, then this is your place. Otherwise, avoid at all costs - there are literally hundreds of better izakaya's in this town. The cooks are mostly foreign, with their fingers all over the food. The food is mediocre at best. The atmosphere is nice, however again, very unjapanese. Feels... More

Bottom line - don't go to this place. I was in Tokyo for business and spent the weekend there, before continuing to another country in APAC. Heard about the restaurant from a colleague that leaved in Japan for some years. Before going I checked the reviews on trip advisor and already saw some uncertainty. As I came solo with no... More

I've been to Gonpachi several times over the years and it never disappoints. This seems to be the go-to place when the Prime Minister of Japan wants to host the visiting President of the United States - both George Bush Senior & Barak Obama have dined here. The first & 2nd floors are where Japanese barbeque is served. This part... More

We wanted to come here because we had been told it was the inspiration for the kill bill movie scene. I was a little worried it might be too touristy. However - the atmosphere was very lively, the staff very attentive and the food good quality. We ordered the second tasting menu, 6500 yen each. Each course was delicious and... More
