choice of 3 type menus with your own teppanyaki chef down a windy staircase was just the beginning. The matre'd was just so helpful and explained our choices. I chose the kobe beef but it was an expensive extra but it was a lot of different foods and expertly cooked. would give it 5

Beautiful location, nice idea to see the chef who works in front of you...but the food is normal, unlike the bill is too high for the quality of food.

We gathered 14 people from different countries and we were all shocked by this amazing experience. Not cheap but wasnt that expensive either considering the really fine food and wine we had. It would have been more expensive even in Argentina. Reserve the teppanyaki counter.

This restaurant is located in the central Roppongi area, Tokyo. The entrance is discrete but once inside, you find yourself in an oasis with a modern and delicate interior all operated by their exceptional staff. After having enjoyed the bar area, we were escorted to our seats by a very friendly and professional hostess. This time we visited the sushi... More

My wife and 19 year old daughter went to this very upscale and chic restaurant on our second last night in Tokyo. It was recommended by our hotel concierge (we then checked Trip Advisor --as we always do!!). Ask for seating at one of the roundtables where the chef prepares the meals right in front of you. There are 3,... More

Let me first say that the food was expertly prepared and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant. However, our evening started off a bit shaky - our taxi driver's credit card machine wasn't working and he didn't speak English nor I Japanese. After 5+ minutes of watching the driver fidget with the machine and calling the credit card machine company,... More

This is basically a robata bar. There are three set menus with different prices, two of which feature Kobe beef. The preparation is flawless and the side dishes, sushi, and sashimi are all delicious. The price is high, but so too the quality. I would recommend this for a great Tokyo experience.
