Too tired to move out of the hotel on our first night in Tokyo we decided to eat in. We ended up at the Wadakura Restaurant - there are four different eating style options - we chose GO the teppenyaki option. Each teppenyaki grill seats 6 or so people, as there were only two couples eating each couple had their... More

The food was ok but not up to the standard of other restaurants in Tokyo and elsewhere in Japan. The staff forgot a main course, after the order we placed was re-confirmed, it would help them to write the order down and not rely on memory.

I had dinner twice during my stay at the hotel. Once in the restaurant and once in a private dining room. We had booked the room in advance as they are high in demand. The setting, service and food was excellent as always.

I could research the private room of this restaurant for my important 6 persons party. So I can say if you're foreigners or your guests are foreigners no troubles you are worried about. I recommend this private room, especially sitting place and toilets are considered. Of course menu is perfect including Japanese superior sake especially they located 1-1-1 Marunouchi so... More

I was expecting more, but the restaurant was quite empty and although the food was very good, the service was too fast. Friendly, as one would expect, but too fast. I felt that they were trying to hurry me along to clear the table, even though they were not busy

The dinner this evening was another unique experience, teppanyaki by Chef Masateru Horiuchi at the Palace's own Wadakura located on the 6th floor. We were seated in a separate room with six other people at a counter where two chefs worked their magic without banging their utensils or flipping food in the air. We began with an autumn appetizer pictured... More

We ate at the Kaiseki restaurant at Wadakura (there are four restaurants in one). This is really for Japanese food lovers. I had the best dining experience of my life, while my partner complained that the food tasted "bland" and "werid". I am a firm believer that when food is fresh, it doesn't need to hide behind sauces, seasoning and... More

We ordered from the a la carte menu and tried the tempura and sushi. Portions were tiny and prices were high. The 8 piece sushi plate was $90 and it It looked like it was thrown on the plate without much thought or care. The fish was fresh, but that shouldn't be difficult with the world's largest fish market 5... More

PALACE HOTEL give you four options to have Japanese food.. WADAKURA where I went and TATSUMI ( tempura) GO (teppanyaki) and KANESAKA ( sushi). I recomend WADAKURA because they have a la carte menu and you have multiple choices.. The dinner was great accompanied with a good hot sake. This place is for a real JAPANESE FOOD LOVERS.

My search for real Kobe beef in Tokyo ended successfully here. Hidden away in an office building in Ginza, this tepinyaki restaurant was recommended by my hotel's concierge. The service was average and the preparation workmanlike but the meat was well worth the sky high price. Buttery soft, melt in your mouth good. I don't think I can ever enjoy... More
