My husband and I had dinner at Ukaitei. We did not order the course menu but instead ordered 3 dishes la carte; a wise decision since for the same price as course menu you get to eat what you want. Everything from the lobster to the abalone that were still alive when they arrived at the teppanyaki were delicious. The... More

This is my second visit to Unkaitei. They have a few restaurants but this one in Omontesndo is a beautiful restaurant with excellent service and food. My first visit was for dinner last year, and this one was for lunch. We had set menus on both occasions. The theatre of dining is fantastic. not cheap, but worth it for the... More

In order for one to dine here, you must plan ahead of time and make reservations way ahead of time and reserve on-line or call as walk-in might be difficult. As we were ushered inside and seated at their couch, the place is very nice. It's almost like waiting for an interview to take place except in a more relaxing... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant by accident but was honestly the best thing that has ever happened to us. We stopped here for lunch and had a set menu with the most game changing beef. The whole meal is cooked in front of you so you get to see how it's made and be entertained while you eat. The restaurant has... More

Everybody knows that Tokyo restaurants have a different standard in prices but this one is very very expensive, it's one of the best teppanyaki restaurants in Tokyo, we paid 1,400 USD or even a little more for a 4 people meal, we had meat, a lobster, shrimp and vegetables, rice and a bottle of sake, but I must say the...

One of the best steak restaurants in Tokyo. They have several course options and non-beef options as well. Expensive but worth it. There are a few locations in Tokyo. Reservations strongly recommended. Enjoy!

An almost French-styled teppanyaki lunch. Nothing surprising but had some nice dessert to look forward to!

I was invited to lunch at this place. It's not the cheapest place but the experience is fantastic. For lunch, there is a set menu available. We were allocated a private room and cooking presented to us by the chef. Would definitely come back again.

I went on recommendation of concierge from Park Hyatt Tokyo (which I usually blindly trust). I cannot say I did not like it; actually a lot of food was good. But ..... few points: - you stay at the counter, pretending the chef to cook for you. Most of the dishes indeed were cooked somewhere else, and just served you... More

We booked this restaurant upon recommendation from friends. It's fusion and Teppanyaki. It looks very contemporary from outside and the inside is so grand that we thought we were in a Scottish castle. Five of us were having our dinner in a private room with our own chef without extra fee. There's two big teppanyaki tables for about 10 people... More

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.
