Great place to spend with friends and if you don't mind to cook

If you are so hungry, this is not the place because you got to cook yourself and it takes time. But if you gathered with friends, chat and don't mind slow eating, this place is... read more

If you are so hungry, this is not the place because you got to cook yourself and it takes time. But if you gathered with friends, chat and don't mind slow eating, this place is fun. The street full of selection of restaurants, all with the same type of food: monjya yaki/okonomiyaki.

Being in the heart of the fish market, you can purchase knick knacks and also buy foods that they will serve right in front of you or to snack on. Highly recommended to enjoy this after eating at one of the restaurants here or visiting the fish market in the am.

Really fascinating to see these restaurants where they (and you) cook the food literally on the table, on a hot plate in front of you, built into the table. Fun for groups and kids (but make sure they're careful not to get too close or touch the hot plate of course). We ate at one of these and it was... More

This place is popular for local people in Tokyo. Even around 11:00 in the morning, some restaurants are packed with people. Monja will give you wow experience.

Like other reviews have mentioned, go for the monjayaki. Almost every restaurant along the street is selling it. It's cheap and they do the cooking for you on the teppan in front of you on the table. Great Tokyo experience! The area is also famous for a type of pickle dish that's eaten with rice, but the shops selling it... More

Sushi, monjayaki in abundance. Pick one. Enjoy. But there's not too much else in the several block long street to keep you occupied.

Tsukishima (or Moon Island) itself makes a beautiful view when observing from Eitai Bridge. But there is a hidden treasure hidden within, a Monja street with plenty of monja specialised restaurants. Monja reminds of "okonomiyaki", but the cooking process is a bit different. You cook it yourself on the iron plate, but unlike Okonomiyaki you have to spread Monja all... More

We were recommended to visit Tsukishima by a local. Well worth the trip. From Shibuya we took the Hanzoman line to Nagatacho and then changed to the Yurakucho line to Tsukishima (Y21). Take exit 7 and walk straight ahead when you get to street level. This is Monya Street. We were there at 1 PM and not everyone was open... More

Definitely don't miss this street while in Tokyo. We found out about it on a food tour and was so glad we did. So many Monja restaurants to choose from but we didn't go wrong whichever one we chose.
