Had a fresh, delicious and fun meal there on a recent business trip to Tokyo. Put yourself in their hands and enjoy the food and experience. Don't overthink the negative reviews unless you need to completely control the dining experience, then this is not the place for you.

The food here was really good! The staff was friendly and entertaining. However it felt overpriced for what you get...and there is no menu so you don't have any reference for how much you are spending until you get the bill.

I was invited to Inakaya in 1990 by the company I came to do business with in Japan. It was an experience that made a profound impression on me. Some 26 years later, I had the pleasure to bring my wife, daughter and son and to invite my Japanese host of that time (whom I haven't seen in all those... More

If you do not want to be taken for a fool, have your intelligence insulted or get robbed, do not attempt to try out this restaurant. "Run for your life" is a more appropriate statement. It's a huge tourist trap! My partner and I was recommended to this place by our Airbnb hostess. We invited her to join us. She... More

I dined at this Inakaya last evening, staying for about 90 minutes. It is a very enjoyable place, with all the good-natured banter among the servers and delicious food. The total bill for food and drink, for two, came to 12,980 Yen. This is not expensive for Tokyo. There are four or five menu choices that are quite expensive (Wagyu... More

This is a fun, delicious tourist trap. You will leave hungry and with an empty wallet. I could not believe the bill. Just don't go. There are so many options in Tokyo that this one place should be skipped. I must be honest the food Is good, scarce but good, the place is fun, but it is not worth the... More

You should come here if you like fake authentic kitchen with a lot of spectacle. The place looks nice and authentic as you go in: a large wooden square table where guests can take place. At one side of the table show cooking takes place. All food is arranged in the middle on the table. Guests show which food they... More

Someone who used to live in Japan recommended this place as a bit touristy but great food and so much fun. The recommendation was spot on. For a visitor to Japan/Tokyo, I thought the place was iconic - special, unique, fun and great food. We did checkout the not so positive reviews about the place and were watching out for... More
