“Ok Sunday Lunch - But not Brunch!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

For Sunday brunch had a very limited menu: no choice of starters (chef's choice); 4 mains and a dessert buffet. Reasonable price but drinks (not excessive!) doubled the bill. Nice food but oversweet (including savory!). Service was over-rushed. Pleasant dining area but nothing special - no views etc.....There are better places in Tokyo for Sunday brunch,

“Wonderful setting, service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

A world away from the crowding and the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, just off the very tasteful hotel lobby. Unusual view of the high-rise buildings of Marunouchi in a very quiet and inviting space, where the tables are not all shoved together -- as in so many Tokyo eateries.

We went on a night with a special menu, so I am not so sure about the quotidian offerings, but everything was very carefully prepared and presented. Quite a variety of delicious dishes appealing both to the eye and to the palate.

The service was perfect -- attentive without being intrusive. Tokyo prices these days are among the lowest in the developed world. I cannot imagine getting this meal, this setting and this service for the price (about US$90 per person, including wine) in NYC, London, Paris or Sydney.

A place to return to and to share with friends and family. They'll love you for it.

“Exceptional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2010

I had lunch at Ekki and had ordered the set menu. The salad was beautifully presented and delicious. The main course had a bit of a problem and was quickly changed. The manager and staff were all so apologetic. I commend them for their extraordinary service. As with all of Japan, the service culture is beyond excellent - that is what makes travelling there, whether on business or leisure, such a pleasantly memorable experience.
