A nice restaurant we repeatedly visit

We visit Ukai-tei near Omotesando for lunch regularly and recommended to all of our friends travelling to Tokyo. It has a very nice panorama view overlooking greenery. Food was fresh and has good presentation. We ever tried beef, abalone, and other sea food. They're all excellent! A nice part of... read more

This was recommended to us by some knowledgeable people and it did not disappoint. The whole experience from reception, service, drinks, food, after-dinner desserts (two!), it is something to remember and compare others by.

Was on good trip with a couple of friends. I'm a carnivore by heart and could eat beef anytime anyday. Of all the restaurants on our food trip, lunch at ukaitei was the most memorable one. It's expensive but worth it. Every single dish was done to perfection. Most of all, the beef is just beautiful. I have mine medium... More

Went to this Teppanyaky last week .I found the food average, the decoration of the room was quite ordinary and because of some noisy neighbors we didn't enjoy a lot. Still I found it too expensive for what it was! I live in Japan and my local teppanyaki in Kagurazaka is better value and more Japanese

We had a fabulous lunch at Ukaitei. It's quite expensive, but worth it, and much better value to go for lunch. The restaurant is beautiful with a mix of traditional Japanese and modern styling. We sat at the teppanyaki bar which is in a lovely sun lit room with a nice outlook. All of the food was great, and the... More

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

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.
