We went to Shibuya around 1pm and found all cafes and restaurants got long line and I simply can't handle it. However I found this Kaffir Lime line wasn't that long. So we waited. I didn't regret my choice. All the food we order were fantastically delicious. The place is kinda small but that's fine. The owner let us put... More

Located very near to chic Omotesando, this s a simple, cosy, affordable place. Don't get worried about people lining up downstairs. It's usually for the other (not so special) places. This Thai is on 2nd floor. It's very small and you need to be prepared to share your table. Food is very authentic, spicy and good sized in portions. Various... More

Had lunch here today for the first time in a long time. It was as good as I remembered. Green curry spaghetti, stir fried morning glory and Tod Man Pla (fishcakes). Everything was excellent. The fish cakes were about three times as big as those I usually have in Bangkok, but just as delicious. The green curry also worked well... More

It's a good Thai food restaurant that has spicy food as well as food that is mild and suits people who don't like spicy. It's a good atmosphere but small in size

We were looking for Thai and came by this place. After a 10 minute wait, we got a table and ordered two chicken dishes (one with basil, one with veggies and tomato sauce), some fish cakes as appetizer and pad thai to go with our main dishes. The basil was pretty spicy, but the rest was not that hot. We... More

I ate lunch here recently during a visit to this area. My husband and I were starved and looking for something reasonable and quick. This small place was a great find. The currys we ordered were really well-prepared and reasonably priced and the service was very good. English menus were available. The restaurant is upstairs and navigating the stairs is... More

美味しかったけど値段的には理不尽です。パッタイは¥1080で、量は普段より2倍くらい少ないです。ガッパオライスの量はよかったけれども、値段は¥1400でした。 2年前にこの店に行ったことがあるけれども、その時パッタイの量は普通でした。 It was delicious but the size wasn't worth the price. Pattai was about half of the original size you can get in another restaurant. Not worth at all.

We only came here once at a really busy time in the evening, therefore the waiting time was 30-40mins. The restaurant is small but full of character. We tried the only non-veg curry available, which was super spicy. We love thai food, but this one was really spicy.

Thai restaurant is located in the back road from Meiji street in Harajuku. The restaurant had a rustic atmosphere with a lot of wooden interior of Thailand. Lunch sets were provided, and set meals had salad, curry, dessert and drink. Prices were about 1000 yen. I think when compared with the surrounding lunch market price, there had a enough volume...

Second time to Kaffir Lime, first thing that welcomes you is the warmth and friendly ambience. Restaurant is themed to look like Siam-era, small but comfortably cosy. Owned and served by Thais, you will be delighted to sample dishes that are prepared authentic to Thai standards. Most of the dishes on offer are good, I particularly liked the deep fried... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
