The breakfast Buffet has a great selection of both western and japanese breakfast choices. I found the fruit and other choices outstanding

The breakfast selection is incredible! Delicious. Dinner buffet was also good but slightly overpriced. Our main issue was with times, breakfast opens at 7 until 9:30. Dinner ends at 9:30.

This is a pretty impressive hotel buffet, with nice views of the surrounding area. Pretty much everything was quite good, and you can ensure that a group with a diversity of taste comes away happy. It's a bit pricy (lunch was 5,500 yen/person), but considering the view, the location and the quality of food, it's worth it.

A great daily buffet breakfast. For the weekends consider going early as many locals also visit the place

Stayed at the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, for one night prior to boarding ship for a cruise and had trouble deciding on which of the many restaurants the hotel has on offer to go to for dinner. All where fairly expensive I thought (but of course it is Tokyo) but finally decided on the Viking Sal because of the choice on... More

Last October, I hosted a small dinner party for friends/business associates at The Imperial Viking Sal. It is a buffet restaurant in one of the top floors of The Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. The table we had had a great window view of the National Diet Building and we had enough privacy for us to have great converations. The food... More

There is a complete selection of items which never fails to please our guests. We like to use this restaurants for 'mixed" groups for this reason.

Very nice breakfast in this Palace. Continental and Japanese buffet in this self service restaurant. Nice view on the park. Delicious French baguette bread but expensive breakfast though at 3,800 Y.

The buffet breakfast has to be experienced at least once. Even if it's self service, servers were quick to accommodate requests like water, additional juice, and sometimes extra bread. They had continental and Asian dishes. Really a great buffet.

I have no idea why the ratings on this place are so high. Japanese and American breakfast selections but all very average. The fruit was canned which I would not expect for $35 breakfast in a "nice" hotel. Buffet at the Tokyo Palace hotel was MUCH better.
