This place offers very good burgers made of Japanese black beef. even if it is a bit expensive. All kind of toppings are possible. Open all day, it is better to go out of regular lunch and dinner times. The service is good and we enjoyed the burger with avocado and other hot chili burger. It is a good place... More

Really tasty burger, comes with sauce, pickles and potato wedges. You can buy extra toppings for the burger at a small additional cost. All burgers are wagu beef cooked pink which is perfect for me! Great service, couldn't fault it. Would definitely visit again.

There are so many trendy burger joints opening nowadays and, let's be honest, they're much of a muchness. It's hardly a complicated recipe - bread, meat, toppings! This place, though, takes it up a notch and it's all down to one thing - the beef. Melt in the mouth tender, juicy beef so full of flavour that only a little... More

I like my burgers and this one did not disappoint. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Ebisu is a cute little area to wander around after dinner too. Excellent experience.

Big and beautiful 'Black Wagyu' burgers well prepared in a welcoming setting. Not the cheapest burger in town but easily one of the best.

Read the reviews and had pretty high expectations but the final product surpassed even that! Juicy and moist, nice bread... Zucchini fritters as fries substitute is a great option... Only negative is the selection of draft beer but otherwise a great experience. Will definitely come back when next in Tokyo

I make the bold statement in the title without trying any other burgers, but considering this was the best burger I have eaten (and I have the waistline to show for all the burgers I have dealt with) it is an easy comment. They grind the beef and make each patty prior to cooking, the freshness is unbelievable and amongst... More

This is definitely worth trying. The burger is fantastic, and comes with great potato wedges. We also loved the salad and cod fish side. Definitely the best burger in Tokyo! The burger was about US$20, which was worth the price for that quality of Wagyu beef.

Heard a lot about Blacows from many reviewers so thought would go and try out a Japanese kobe beef burger while in Tokyo. Again I think my expectations were very high so it was a let-down. I have had a better burger at Shake Shack and at Nomad Bar in New York City. The burger was nice but nothing that... More

We visited Blacows last summer and we really enjoyed it. It was probably the best burger we have eaten ever. Everything was really tasteful: meat of course but also the bread and the fries that came with the burger. Nice place to taste wagyu.

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.
