Cheap spot to go to for your gyoza fix. Luckily, when my friend and I went there was no line so we instantly got a seat at the bar area. We ordered the original steamed gyoza and the original pan fried gyoza. The gyoza was good, but I do not understand what makes this spot so popular. Honestly, I have... More

Stopped in here as had seen it recommended heavily on line. The restaurant itself sits in a little side street away from the main hustle and bustle in Harajuku. Ordered steamed and fried Gyoza, white rice and miso soup, washed down with a bottle of Sakē. The place was busy, but managed to get two seats at the bar and,... More

Yes, foreigners who live in Japan have had better Gyoza, but I recommend this place to bring guest, people on a budget, or looking for a place to stop and eat and drink for less. They have significantly lower food prices, while their beer and sake prices even ordinary (¥500). Yes, I saw a lot of locals in line, as... More

Can't beat the price. But the 1 hour line up on a cold Saturday afternoon in December lessened the experience.

Harajuku Gyozaro is a must everytime we visit Japan. This time was the first time we had to wait in line. It must of grown in popularity since my last visit 4 years ago. Fantastic gyoza and a cozy atmosphere. Love the steamed gyozas!!

An easy example of why I'm skeptical of dining establishments plugged by travel guides. The Gyoza were good - but far from great. Definitely not special enough to warrant the queue - even at ¥290. But they at least paired well with a cold glass of Kirin Ichiban Shibori (hey, what doesn't?!). Surprisingly more flavorful was our side of boiled... More

Its fine for frozen gyoza. But 90% of the line is non local and the 40min line is driven by good marketing to English speakers. If I had my time again would rather have walked into a local

Got there around 7pm and there was a line already. Fast spot with always moving wait staff. We really enjoyed the cabbage app, the cucumber miso, and the gyoza. Prefer the boiled rather than pan fried but both had a flavorful filling Small, focused menu so great meal with side of tea or beer! :)

We waited for 45min before we got a table. We had to catch the waiters to order anything. Service was rapid but we didn't end up getting everything we ordered!! We tried to re-order a second time, and were still waiting when they then asked us to change table.... Ended up just leaving...

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.
