Very good but overpriced

We had the abalone & beef recommended menu with wine pairing. Some of the multiple dishes were sublime, others were banal. There were glitches in the wine pairing so that they had some issues serving the glasses at the right time. It was certainly not cheap and would have expected a bit more... read more

Just nice things to say about this restaurant. Food was excellent and service without a doubt one of the best we ever had. Went for the Abalone menu which was very good. The final act, the desert, was the thing that surprised as the last chocolate selection was extremely good. Enjoy.

Ukai-tei is a one Michelin star teppanyaki restaurant, and its rating is well deserved. The restaurant is located on an upper floor of a shopping mall and has a beautiful view of the surrounding area. You can order from a pre-set menu or order individual dishes. If you aren't Japanese or accustomed to traditional Japanese cuisine, I would order individually.... More

Very elegant restaurant on the top floor of a high-end shopping center in Omotesando. The main Tepanyaki room is a long counter with many seat next to each other with a cook preping and grilling the food right in front of you. The menus are quite pricy but ingredients are fancy and expensive. (lobster, abalone, Foie gras, Kobe Beef, sea... More

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 the lunch is that we're escorted to another area for... 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

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.
