Excellent valentines night meal

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.

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

Located at the top of the Chanel building, a wonderful, classic Japanese cuisine and refined atmosphere. Staff is welcoming. Food was perfectly executed. The place itself is gorgeous. Dessert is served is a special room with great views on Shinjuku skyline. A must.

Third teppanyaki recommendation by Ritz Carlotn hotel concierge (first two booked up) but glad we came to this one. Private room with chef and lovely decor. Fun and relaxed. Excellent food and service. The 'waiter' who was more like Maitre D' explained things as we went along, including traditions, but without being intrusive. The best steak we have ever eaten... More

Let's start to say that such a fine taste in interior decoration is rarely seen in Japan, also due to a high cost factor and different approach to architecture. This place is really outstanding in every detail, a greart combination of antique and new materials, well worth to look at. Most "Teppan-Yaki" in Japan are tasty, but this is something... More

Their attention to detail and service is amazing! The main course and dessert is served in different rooms. The dessert room looks like a high tea place. We had the set menu. The others are all ok but the beef is amazing! So tender! Would have ordered just the beef. A bit pricey around $150/ head. Bit for the experience,... More

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.
