About
Features lacquered beams and pillars, as well as walls covered with Bengala-vermillion plaster and a mosaic wall. The restaurant has an atmosphere where art-nouveau and Japanese style meet, and it is just like a museum. All private rooms are equipped with hot griddles, where your dedicated chef cooks in front of you. You can overlook Omotesando Street from the fully encased glass counter seats.

Thanks to a certain US President dining at the Ginza branch it's nearly impossible to make a reservation. Do keep trying. This place has food that will make you weep. The dessert course--ask to sit outside if at all possible. Divine.

Started lunch late but still thoroughly enjoyed 3+ hours here with my Japanese friends, chatting to the Teppanyaki chef and relaxing in the dessert lounge overlooking Ometesando hills. The food, service and atmosphere are always outstanding. Bravo!

It’s for sure one of the finest places to visit if you are a fine meat lover and/or refined shellfish connoisseur! Their meat is amazing! Don’t go for the Kobe option as the meat in the menu is more superior! The Abalone (AWABE) is Live...More

I have been to Kobe and this place is still a winner IMO. Lunch is, of course, the cheaper option. Prawn Appetizer was good. Fish was cooked perfectly. Beef melted in your mouth. Rice was perfumy buttery and garlicky. Desserts were good too, spoilt for...More

First time to Ukai Tei, we went to the Omotesando branch. Very nicely decorated, with helpful and attentive service staff. The teppanyaki chefs are not dedicated to a certain diner but rotates around to cook the dishes for you. There are three set dinner options,...More

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.

It is kind of a posh place, so no t-shirt or shorts. Jeans and a shirt will do fine

We tried the restaurant at Ginza, very nice interiors and is on the ground level. We had the set menus which have goid beef and we felt the amount of food was just enough as it gives you room for dessert later. The desserts... More
