My girlfriend and I had lunch here. It was a cool Japanese experience where we took off our shoes before we ate the food sitting in the tatami dining room. We had a view out over their beautiful small garden where they had a small waterfall. The menu consisted primarily of various tofu dishes. We ate both a dish with... More

This venerable Tokyo restaurant offers so many tofu dishes -- even tofu ice cream -- that it boggles the mind. We've eaten dinner here many times during our visits to Tokyo over the years and are never disappointed. It is amazing what the chef is able to do with tofu and every dish is absolutely delicious. Sometimes it is impossible... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch on our trip to Tokyo. It was delicious and affordable. The owners and staff were very friendly. They had an english menu with pictures, so we knew what we were ordering. The waitress explained the dishes and how to eat them. We ordered a multi-course lunch so we were able to... More

The winner in vegetarian that we saw in Tokyo and a delightful setting! Perfect lunch after doing Tokyo National Museum. Sitting overlooking the zen water garden was fine. Tofu in many fine ways. Share w friends (I know, not Nihongo kosher to do) because wasn't bad dish on menu.

If you can manage to find this little gem, I'd highly recommend it. A multi-course dinner of tofu prepared as many ways as you can imagine. Subtle flavours yes, but absolutely delicious. In a beautiful tatami mat room

Sasa-no-Yuki is a old-school Tokyo tatami-style restaurant (take shoes off on the way in) in Taito. Its multi-course tofu feast will give you more different varieties of tofu than you may ever have dreamed possible--and they are all delicious. This was an unforgettable Tokyo experience.

This restaurant has a modest front and is in a rather industrial part of Tokyo, and is less than 5 minutes' walk from Uguisudani JR Station (one stop north of Ueno). But when you walk in, it is almost like entering another world: serene; like a relic of yesteryear. The traditional Japanese way of serving food is extremely dainty and... More

Like an Iron Chef episode, the theme of this 300+ year old restaurant is all tofu all the time. There is a choice of two (or was it three) set menus that start at 7 courses, each with the venerable tofu as the main attraction. Despite our love of meats and fish, lunch at Sasanoyuki was one of our top... More
