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

Ukai tei is an amazing restaurant and dining there is an experience. The quality and presentation is mind blowing. The chefs are artists and the masterpiece unfolds right before your very eyes!!! The service is top notch and unmatched anywhere in the world. Do not leave Tokyo without dining here.

This place always make me happy every time i visited japan. Also, this is a place where i always recommended my friends who want to have good experienced in tokyo. Even though the menu is hardly changed, i never get bored of it. The ambience is very good for family dinner or a date. Another great thing about this place... More

My wife and I visited Ukai on the last night of a short holiday in Japan. I chose Ukai as it is a Michelin starred teppenyaki and I thought that I'd be unlikely to find a Michelin starred teppenyaki outside Japan. We chose the a la carte options rather than the tasting menu because the previous night had been kaiseki... More
