Had an excellent, romantic meal on the balcony years ago. Still decent quality of food for the price but atmosphere is more like a sushi-Red Lobster kind of joint. Finished quickly and had real meal down the street.

I haven't been to Japan in DECADES and I completely dreaded visiting every temple in Tokyo. But my younger Japanese cousin took me and my 20-something son to this place and we had a great time. You don't have to be a Quentin Tarantino fan to enjoy this place. There's definitely a buzz going on about it - and I... More

I went for lunch - the place was completely empty and it was more kitschy than anything else. The food was between mediocre and bland enough not to eat at all - I had the yakitori with cold soba noodles. I think I ate a third of what was served to me. Skip this tourist spot and go to the... More

Two of us are from California and one from London, dining with two women from Japan on a Saturday night. We were promptly seated downstairs next two a large, lively group celebrating a birthday. Gonpachi made a wonderful celebration of their occasion, involving the whole restaurant. We were interested in experiencing a wide variety of Japanese food and appreciated having... More

Many people said to me: Go check out the Kill Bill Restaurant, it's where they filmed this crazy fight scene. So I went and I think the correct statement is rather: it's what inspired the set design for the scene in the movie. It's a good walk from the roppongi station but once you approach it the exterior is surprisingly... More

To be honest I ate here purely because of it's Kill Bill connections - and as soon as you walk in you feel like you are on the set of the film. The restaurant looks great, very Japanese and love that all the staff shout welcome to you as soon as you walk in! The good was incredible. My favourite... More

Make sure to climb the extra flight of stairs and eat on the top floor. More quiet. Food is terrific and the service excellent. Waitstaff very friendly. The salmon and fatty tuna sashimi was excellent as was barbecued beef. Kirin beer the best!

Movie set, visited by movie stars, Johnny Depp, Lady GaGa and even President Bush! Tip- try the sushi restaurant upstairs it is superb and often super-quiet! The busy downstairs is absolutely great value, great food and service! I always visit this venue when visiting Tokyo. Approx 1000 yen for a set meal which makes Tokyo superb value for any international... More

First of all, beware - there are at least 3 of these in the tokyo area and people have misreviewed the others as this one. This is the one which inspired the Charlie Brown restaurant in Kill Bill. The one in Shibuya for example is on the 14th floor but still has reviewers pics showing this one. Ok that aside... More

OK, it's kind of predictable why you come here, right? Well, seeing the inspiration of the restaurant of one of the great scenes in "Kill Bill" is worth it. The food is good, and relatively speaking. Very affordable. My party of 2 had soba noodles, skewers , rice, edamame, beer for the price of ¥4900, which in the land of... More
