Compared to the other top tofu restaurant, Ukai, the flavors did not stand up in comparison. We had a private room but it felt dark and dingy. There are three courses but the only difference seems to be volume rather than dishes: 5000, 6000, 7000. You will get very full on the 7000 yen course. Every dish is tofu; they... More

I had the set lunch for 2800 yen. I don't usually spend that much on a meal but it was entirely worth it, just make sure you're hungry or opt for the smaller set or à la carte options. The combination of quality of the ingredients, richness of taste yet simplicity are to be relished. Simplicity is not at all... More

Bea Sasa-no-Yuki opened its doors in the Edo period (more than 300 years ago), it still serves the same dishes as when the place first opened. You should seat overlooking the tiny garden and the koi pond. There are set meals that allow you to sample a broad range of tofu delicacies, like hiryuzu (tofu dumpling with vegetables), gomadofu (sesame... More

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.
