Gorgeous Teppanyaki Palace: Came for lunch. Food was quite expensive but worth it. Food was fantastic as well. Highly recommended experience. After lunch they move you to a special dessert room which was wonderful as well.

Omotesando Ukaitei has managed to take the traditional Japanese Teppanyaki style restaurant and given it a successful touch of French gourmet kitchen. They maintain the traditional courses of the Teppanyaki including the essential grilled lived lobster and jumbo shrimp as well as high quality Japanese Kobe style steak cooked to perfection and served with garlic slices and exotic Japanese sauces....

Despite my general boredom with teppanyaki, Ukaitei offers up a nice meal with a fun atmosphere. I don't think it deserves any Michelin stars. There are much better teppanyaki places in tokyo at half the price. I much prefer Ukai Toriyama but it's an adventure to get to. Well worth it though.

I was fortunate to get a last minute booking at this restaurant for Valentine's Day. The restaurant is situated on the upper floors of a large building, the sign for the restaurant can be hard to spot as the English writing on it is very small. The teppanyaki is cooked in front of you at a teppanyaki counter which seats... More

If you fancy teppanyaki in Tokyo, of course there are a lot of choices, Ukaitei should be one of the places on your list if not on the top of your list. A two starred Michelin restaurant, with outlets all around Tokyo, I tried the one in Omotesando. The restaurant is located in the same building with Chanel, MMM and... More

The restaurant itself looked awesome. The holding area, the resto area, the private rooms, the lounge area and even the toilet. 👍👍👍 The food was great. Service was good as well.

I had dinner at ukaitei on a wednesday night. I ordered the seasonal set dinner which costs ¥~200k after taxes. The starters were nice, but look out for the alaskan king crab and teppanyaki wagyu beef, which are to die for. Service was top notch staff were attentive and even walked me out.

This place is chic in an understated way - seems very Japanese. Super food and also very relevant and good selection of wines. Private dining room seats ten around the stove. Worth a detour.

A client took me to this restaurant for dinner. We were seated at a semi-circle shaped bar around a cooking grill and kitchen area. Decoration and atmosphere were very impressive. Client ordered dinner for the both of us, so I did not get a chance to look at the menu. I believe cost was very high -- well over $100... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
