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

I will respect the restaurant by saying - yes, the food and service are great. Thank you. BUT, when you ask for a menu, they will say "just point to it." Why do they do this ? So they can charge you "market prices" (numbers that they can simply make up at the end of your dinner, thereby hijacking all... More

Randomly came upon this place and was blown away. Friendly and helpful staff. Ordered perfectly for us. Bamboo was amazing but that's just the start! Snapper, sashimi, guzzling beer. Only thing... Expect to pay around $600 AUD if you order chefs selection. Ha. Great food and service and traditional experience. Must experience this cultural tradition.

I enjoyed this evening immensely on a regular business trip to Tokyo. The evening consists of fine showmanship, fine ingredients, but a hefty price tag. As commented repeatedly by others, you will leave feeling a little lighter in the pocket, but the experience is certainly worth it, better yet if someone else is treating you ;) The freshness of the...
