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.

Absolutely fell in love with this restaurant while in Tokyo in January 2013. I would go so far to recommend this over some of the Michelin starred restaurants in Tokyo - after our first visit we couldn't wait to go back. Definitely recommend the tofu - melt in your mouth stuff and incomparable to any tofu I have ever had.... More
