Tamahide is right up the street from the Ningyocho subway station on the Hibiya Line. The lines are long, but how often in your life do you get a chance to eat at a restaurant that's almost 300 years old? The Oyakodon is absolutely delicious and is totally worth the wait. If you go for lunch, the price is not... More

After walking around Ginza, I decided to eat lunch at Tamahide. Took Tokyo Metro to Ningyocho Station and exit A2. I arrived towards end of lunch hours so there was a short line (only waited 10-15 mins). YAH! I ordered regular oyakodon which also comes with a cup of chicken broth and a VERY tiny portion of pickled vegetable(?). It... More

Yes, it is famous, and maybe everyone should try it once just to say you did. But I'm average in the kitchen and I could cook this myself....no joke. It's just rice, with cooked chicken and chicken kidneys in a slightly undercooked omelet. Anyone that has tried it will bear me out. If you have a spare $2400 yen and... More

I came here with high hopes and was brought down quite swiftly. I understand the hype this place gets for being the first of it's kind, but honestly thier star dish was underwhelming. First of all, if you choose to go, don't make the mistake of coming here for dinner instead of lunch. You'd think you'd get at least a... More

It is the the founder of OYAKODON, we lived in the district and so wanna give it a try. We waited there before the restaurant opened and got our seat soon when it started their business that day. The oyakodon was delicious, the egg is very soft and the chicken has a special texture as it is of some special... More

Food: The food was genuinely disappointing. We had a soft cooked egg on rice with boiled chicken, One 4 ounce bowl of chicken soup, 1/6th of a locally grown orange, and to small cuts of 3 japanese pickles. Everything tasted as expected nothing really was enriched with flavor. Soggy general rice, Sweetened egg no spices, Boiled chicken. (My least favorite... More

It is simply called the home of the Oyakodon because that's whatvthe place is all about. The menu is simple: a donburi with egg and eirhe chicken fillet pieces, chicken liver or minced chicken. Attention: the chicken pieces are cooked rare and are hence raw on the inside. Western taste buds might hence prefer the version with the minced chicken

The Tamahide restaurant is a traditional Japanese restaurant in Ningho-cho, a traditional neighborhood of Tokyo. It is only one block from the Ningho-cho metro station. You want to be in line before 11:30 since the place is very popular. We were the only non-japanese in the line. the food is very good. Try the oyako domburi (chicken and egg on... More

This place is off the beaten path in the area of ningyocho, but it is definitely an experience. It has been around since 1760. We got on line and it seemed to be regulars and japanese foodie tourist. The host wore a kimono and checked in on our numbers. The line moved swiftly. We don't speak japanese so when we... More

We were attracted by the long queue during lunch, and decided to give it a try. The queue started before the opening hours 1130am. Queue is well organized and fast turn around. You decide what to order and paid, then wait to be seated. We had to share table w strangers. Everyone is there to eat and then leave. Not... More

Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
