Japanese food unpretentious

This was a very good choice - we enjoyed the set menu. In a basement, off omotesando area, near the ura-hara backstreets behind omotesando. Quite sophisticated, albeit unpretentious. Simple setting with wooden elements

My wife and I joined our son for dinner here. He lives in the Tokyo area and selected this restaurant based on reputation and word of mouth. One could describe the cuisine as "junior-kaiseki". Very careful presentation, food selection and cooking. We enjoyed the seven course set menu that included sashimi, soup, entree courses, rice and dessert. The rice is... More

Came here through recommendation by the hotel. Restaurant we originally wanted wasn't open due to a national holiday. I like the ambience of the restaurant, but was sadly disappointed after looking at the menu. Selection is very limited. But that's fine. With a table of 3 adults and 2 kids, we ordered 2 set menus and a bunch of items... More

I took my 9 year old son here on the first night of our 5 day holiday in Tokyo. It was a little tricky to find, but well worth the adventure. Walking down some steps to the entrance (before the whisky bar), we entered into a warm space - all done in rich wood panelling and with long bar and... More

Part of the Tokyo experience is being on an ongoing adventure in unfamiliar surroundings. Though like many reviewers have pointed out -- the restaurant is difficult to find -- it was certainly worth the hunt. We sampled from the pre-fixe menu that offered a wide variety of Japanese cuisine. Our favorite was the shashimi, but the other selections didn't disappoint.... More

Delicious food. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced. Excellent value for money. Only drawback is that if you chose the menu you need at least 1 1/2 hours Also the place is very difficult to find!

Once you finally find it you are so relieved that I think you feel it's incumbent upon you to like it. Don't fall for that. I ordered off the ala carte menu at the counter after telling the man behind the counter, "no tofu no miso." They speak some English here, a rarity ANYWHERE in Tokyo. The first thing they... More

We selected the degustation here, so I can't speak for the other food. We were seated at the counter and were able to enjoy watching the chefs at work. Goodness me the presentation is elaborate. We are talking flowers, autumnal leaves, etc. of course the service standards are very high, as in most of tokyo I've experienced. However, the flavours... More

A small, hard to find spot but it is worth the expedition. We chose the 5000 yen set menu and were not disappointed. The house sake was excellent , they have an English friendly menu and the service was top notch. Each selection was beautifully prepared. This was a great dining experience.

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.
