Definitely good

Waited in line at this famous restaurant in Harajuku. Ordered 1 pan seared + 1 boiled gyoza + bean sprouts. Surprisingly, the boiled gyoza was very good. To me, the pan seared was so-so.

Excellent. Its juicy, fresh and delicious. Perfect either as a snack or lunch meal (order it with some rice). Tried both pan fried gyoza and broth ones. Make sure you dip it into the red vinegar/soy to get an extra element of "tang" which really makes it even better. Service is quick and there was no line when we came... More

We went here twice as it was so good and worth waiting in the que and not too expensive either. The best gyozas we tasted in Tokyo. Ideal for quick bites while in the Harajuku area

Not a smile. Terrible service Only 2 types of gyoza... This place does not deserve your attention... You can find thousand times better in Tokyo. We were very dissapointed. Dirty place

Around the corner people were waiting in line for almost two hours to get an icecream. I don't get this. So this half an hour was ok. Very good gyoza indeed, we tried them all.

If you like Gyozas and you are in Tokyo, this restaurant is a no brainer. You cannot reserve, nor can you put your name on a waiting list. You turn up, you stand in back of the line (there is almost always a line), and you wait your turn. The restaurant itself is nothing special in terms of aesthetics. The... More

can't really tell whether if it's the best gyoza in town but it's definitely value for money. it is cheap and food is great. not sure if it's worth a 30+ minute wait tho and the chances of you getting seated when you're with a big group are pretty slim especially for dinners.

This is pretty much the go-to place for Gyoza in Tokyo. I read up about it before arriving in Japan and it was actually the first place I went to after checking into the hotel. The Gyoza was delicious, I highly recommend the pan fried with garlic. Start off with the fresh cucumber and miso sauce (Also delicious) and enjoy... More

I stumbled upon this restaurant whilst wandering around Harajuku. Although there was a line-up, I managed to be seated immediately because I was alone and there was a spare seat at the bar. The Gyoza is the best I've ever had! Service was quick; the meal only cost 290 yen; and the waitress and manager were both friendly and took... More

We got here a few minutes before opening. When they opened, it quickly filled and we ate delicious cucumber salad with ginger dressing and then gyoza. We were out in about 20 minutes and very happy, as were those waiting in line outside.

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.
