Memorable!

Visited this restaurant with my wife. We both enjoy teppanyaki, and the beef was beautifully done - literally melting in our mouths. The staff were very attentive and polite. A bit pricey, and with a short teppanyaki menu, but certainly worth a visit!

A gorgeous Teppanyaki with a breathtaking view. The check is at the same level of the luxury that fits you like a glove, but, in my humble opinion, it’s worth every single yen that you have to pay for this unique experience. Recommended to the most unrepentant bon vivants and sybaritis who live like if there’s no tomorrow.

Second trip here, was a special day being Christmas, so we opted for the Lunch set menu. The venue and service is impeccable and despite being pricey i will go back! it was a memorable experience. The venue is charming and they take you to a separate seating area for desserts, which is also equally tastefully done. Meal for 3... More

Our hotel concierge helped us with this restaurant choice, and did a wonderful job. From our greeting, through our seating, and then our service, everything was at the highest level. The food, prepared in front of the diner, is of an outstanding quality, with the cooking and presentation done to the highest quality standards. The chef was very good at... More

For some perspective, there were four of us dining for dinner, and we all had the Beef & Lobster (French Style) menu. -Love the setting. It's very classic and elegant, yet approachable for a foreign guest. -The food is simply amazing. Someone in our group had an allergy to shellfish and they did a lovely job working with all of...

I came here expecting most of part of the menu to be off the teppanyaki. After all, they were often described to be 1 Michelin Star teppanyaki restaurant. However, only the main dishes (beef, sea bream, abalone - only if u pick the special course) are cooked on the griddle. Maybe i should have done more research.... the other dishes... More

Got a 2pm reservation for lunch which wasnt bad since we explored yoyogi park, meiji shrine and some of omotesando before going here. Food here is a bit expensive but it was very good. Was hoping we can order from different sets but it should be the same. From appetizers to dessert, every dish was solid! My fave was the... More

Had this and preferred the ginza branch. For some reason cooking techniques and seasoning were a bit different although skill wise was also good.

They have a few store but I love this one the most. It's at the 5th floor of the "Chanel building" with great view overlooking greenery. The teppanyaki beef was so good and tender. Food quality was high and they used very nice bowls and dishes which made the Dinning experience enjoyable. The service staff were also attentive. Dessert was... 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.
