tried their lunch menu set even though we were upset they dont have tajima beef but they still served the best beef. The chef was nice and talkative. Overall if I go to Tokyo again, I will definitely come back there.

During our stay in Tokyo, we were invited in this restaurant, real kaiseki restaurant close to the Tokyo tower. As well as the same restaurant at Hachioji, the service, the quality of the cuisine and the Japanese garden are top. Personally, I prefer the restaurant Blanc - Rouge at the new Tokyo Station hotel, more fusion cuisine. But for those... More

Great food, setting and service. Of the 5 or 6 teppanyaki places I've been to in Tokyo, Ukai-tei provided the best all round experience. The starters and teppanyaki steak were excellent, although no better than some others, and arguably not quite as good as at Keyakizaka, but it was a great overall dining experience. Unlike many restaurants in Japan, the... More

Visited during 8 hour stop over en route for New Zealand. Easy access from airport to restaurant via overground/underground. Very very expensive restaurant. £250 for 3 of us . We had a private chef as were eating with another family we were travelling with. Cannot fault the quality or service and was a very agreeable and enjoyable (albeit shockingly expensive!)... More

We started with the marinated lobster and grapefruit sauce(?). It went incredibly well together. Next was the grilled fish on mushroom soup. It has a very oriental taste and being Asian, I liked it very much. Chestnut soup was a little bit too flavourful, but it was fine as the portion was small. Finally, the beef, it was tender, melt-in-your-mouth... More

I visited Omote Sando Ukaitei after Ginza Ukaitei. To my surprise, they are much better in term of service. They even offered a non-Japanese staff to attend to me despite I speak Japanese fluently. And sensing I wasn't comfortable with a non-Japanese staff, the Japanese staff quickly came to attend to me personally. How attentive they are! The beef and... More

Based on the title of my review, you may be asking, "Why only 4 stars?" While the steak was the most tender, delicious, melt in your mouth, better than any kobe I've ever had, the rest of the meal was quite tragic indeed. We started with their mushroom tempura and grilled lobster. Both appetizers were small portions and didn't taste... More

I don't know about the Ginza location, but the Omotesando branch was way over the top. I much prefer the Teppanyaki restaurants at the Imperial Hotel and Hotel Okura. We ordered the abalone and beef set menu. The hairy crab and jelly starter was very good -- incredibly fresh crabmeat. Then foie gras, which was excellent (although not expected). The... More

We got a bit lost initially and didn't realise it was in Ometosando and not actually Shibuya. Food was exquisite and well presented. Service was impeccable. We especially liked the dessert room with the trolley of yummalicious desserts to choose from. We tried the Teppanyaki at the Grand Hyatt too which was ranked no 1 on tripadvisor but found Ukaitei's... More

Ukaitei is located on the 5th floor of a building on prestigious Omotesando shopping street that houses brands like Bulgari. The restaurant is designed to fit in and will not disappoint luxury shoppers. The interior is designed in classical European style, very high end. The service matches the upscale atmosphere and leaves nothing to be desired. Bilingual menus and English... More
