Beware, tourist trap. Can definitely find better meals elsewhere for a fraction of the price (i.e yakitori bars). Here they do everything to avoid providing a menu which states the exorbitant prices.. even if you directly ask for it (they just point at the table and say that is the only menu). All the staff are well trained to upsell... More

We had a nice meal it was entertaining but the price tag was incredible. 38000yen for just a few dishes and 2 beers!! They don't let you know the price of anything as you just pick the food from in front of you. Compared to other places we ate at (including Nobu) this was just WAY overpriced!!!!

Although the place is overrun by tourists, the food is fantastic. It is absolutely a greet place to take a group and socialize.

I will tell you that this is worth the money if you can afford to splurge a little bit. It's just that great.

With some business partners we went to have dinner here. It is not a big place and it is really very Japanese. The people do not speak English. The experience was the best we had across a number of very nice restaurants we visited in Tokyo. The cooks who sit in front of you, announce to everyone what they prepare... More

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
