Went by Nakajima today because of one of the reviewers said that it was the cheapest Michelin starred restaurant around. Well it isn't anymore. They only offer three dinner sets - one at ¥8,000, one at ¥10,000 and one at ¥13,000 per person. We didn't bother going in since we were looking for a less expensive option that night so... More

Very satisfied with the dinner set menu - quite classic in terms of type of courses, but nonetheless very tasty, well worked out combinations and well grounded flavors. The chef, who is rather loud for Japanese standards, is very pleasant and engaging with customers, the hostess very attentive and the clientele almost entirely Japanese over 40, which all together give...

The lunch here will set you back $8 USD and even if that were not case it would be worth visiting. There are 4 types of sardines on offer, we sampled the pan and deep fried options. Both were incredible. Dishes are served with rice, miso soup, and various accoutrements. Everything was wonderful. Put the work in to find the... More

Nakajima is easy to find and is not - at the same time. It's located close to Shinjuku station, in a small side street, and it's in the basement. If you're new to Tokyo, use Google Maps to lead you there. I was there for lunch, around 13:00, and the place was packed, so a small queue formed outside, but... More

There are 4 lunch sets. All are sardines. We have the hot plate set and sashimi set. We prefer the sashimi set because this is the first time we eat sardine in that way and it taste good. The set includes rice, pickle, miso soup. You can have a 2nd bowl of rice free of charge. If you need the... More

Encouraged by the prior reviews, we decided to stop in here for lunch (and it is NOT easy to find, so make sure you have directions). It looked like a decent place so we sat down and were handed a menu with four different set choices. The menu had no English, and we couldn't tell what the photos were showing.... More

This 1-star prised (MICHELIN) Japanese Restaurant is one of my favorite in Shinjuku. I wish you make reservation for this restaurant, and try one of course menus "KAISEKI". You may be deeply impressed by the harmony of seasonal tastes, originally arranged by chef.
