“A very Serene Restaurant !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

A Serene place for a special occasion is the Tofuya Ukai, the place is easy to find, just next to the Tokyo Tower.
The occasion was the engagement of my niece Karina to Taku. It was an unforgetable Nagamatsu – Dharmazi dinner, to introduce family members from both sides. The ambiance created by the Tofuya Ukai tradisional and legendary building, the good food and drinks, the majestic Tokyo Tower, intensify the happiness and the good feelings, from listening of the speeches given by the grandfather of the groom, as well as from the parents, uncles and cousins. I believe, the aura and impression of love and care will remain with the couple and the family.
Not many restaurants have such facilities that can impress us, more than just good food, but also commemoration and a real celebration. If you happened to be in Tokyo, I recommend you to have an evening at restaurants such as Tofuya Ukai Tei. The food is also special. Many dishes are based on tofu, very healthy. The restaurant are all in private rooms, I saw many rooms are occupied by businessmen for dinner and also some tourist groups.

“great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We had a lunch course at this beautiful restaurant. It is close to Tokyo Tower and is surrounded by a breath taking garden. The food and service was amazing. Food of course did not disappoint and the tofu was made into various cuisine. Even though if you are not a big fan of tofu, all their other dishes were all fantastic and we had a tasting menu inclusive of all the seasonal ingredients. You will definitely enjoy the entire experience!

“Wonderful authentic Japanese style cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We had a lunch course at this beautiful restaurant. It is close to Tokyo Tower and is surrounded by a breath taking garden. The food and service was amazing and another great thing is that you can bring kids with you too. Their special dishes made of tofu were very tasty and inside the restaurant you will feel like you went back in time in samurai era. A delightful experience.

“Exquisite Food in a Stunningly Beautiful Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is one of the most exquisite restaurants I've ever visited. The location itself would be enough, situated nearly at the foot of the famous Tokyo Tower. The juxtaposition of traditional Japanese and modern industry is just one of those things that makes you think and wonder. However, once inside, you're immersed in traditional Japanese beauty. Each dining area has plate glass windows looking out over one of the many beautiful Japanese gardens. We had our own room, with our own elegant server dressed in kimono. Each course was almost too beautiful to eat, but that should never stop you, as the food is divine! The slow, elegant lunch, spanning at least two hours, was one of the highlights of our visit. Can't recommend this restaurant enough!
