A classic Japanese multi courses meal. Seating is quite ordinary, but fairly cosy/not massive, food is top quality, as you may expect in a traditional Japanese restaurant.

If you want to taste real japanese food, this is the place. The decor is like a japanese garden : wood, stone and a waterfall. Very zen. There is private rooms but you have to make a reservation. Very popular. Food is great, a la carte or three fixed menu. Service is friendly but very fast. Unfortunetly japanese eat very... More

Back again.to this excellent place. I carefully chose from the menu my appetizers (3) sashimi (1) tempura (1) and my main dishes Satsuma chicken tempura and thin sliced sirloin beef slices to cook in a hot boil .. I order a good sake ( hot) to accompanied this meal.. Perhaps the only complain is the very little English that the... More

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
