Tasty, easy, I'd do it again

Garlic and leek gyoza are delicious - both steamed and fried. The cucumbers are also refreshing - love that miso. Sitting at the bar and watching the kitchen work is the way to go, mainly because the guy doing the frying and steaming is especially easy on the eyes! Paired w a cool beer and it's a... read more

Steamed or fried, original or garlic and leek/herb - they are delicious! Wash the gyoza down with a cold, cold beer and make sure you mix up your vinegar, soy and chilli just right (novices: I suggest 40% soy, 50% vinegar and 10% chilli). Eat 'EM by the platefuls hold you enjoy the atmosphere - they are light, never greasy,... More

We loved this place so much we went there twice. The first we stumbled across it, and were lucky there was no queue to get in. The second we had to wait about 20 mins, but after the first experience, I would have waited all day. The Gyozas are excellent, so to is the chicken broth that comes with the... More

The service in this place is extremely poor. I've come to expect both politeness and respect from staff in Japan as that is what you'll find at almost every shop and restaurant. This is more like a vending machine experience. You're shown through the door and waved in the direction of a seat without so much as a smile or... More

Perfect stop for a quick, inexpensive lunch on a little side street off Omotesando. We got lucky and only waited a few minutes, but to be honest, I would have waited longer if we had to, the food was worth it! We tried an order of the fried & an order of steamed gyoza, and I can't pick a favorite.... More

Coming from Melbourne, I'm not one to EVER wait in lines for restaurants. Particularly in cities where there is so much choice. But I cannot stress how good and CHEAP the food is here. Sit at the bar if you want some entertainment in the form of the chefs cooking. And go more than once if you can - you... More

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

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.
