My friends and I were immediately seated. The atmosphere is scary and fun! The hostess handcuffed me and led me to the cell where our table was. We ended up ordering almost every alcoholic beverage from the menu and large variety of food. We ordered...More

Quite difficult place to find and when we entered the staff didn't speak much English so it was difficult to explain that we had a reservation but luckily we'd printed out a copy so we got there in the end. The place is set out...More

This place would not exist out of Japan. The staff dress up and scare customers periodically. All good and drinks are horror themed - syringe Jello shots, eyeballs, brains etc. The place is perfectly tacky and you are seated inside an underground gaol cell. Been...More

The restaurant was amazing. We loved the beginning where they tried to scare you as well as the little jail cell tables. Cocktails and food was amazing and not too pricey. Would definitely recommend and go again

Japan does themed eating out brilliantly however this is not one of those. The themed ambience was decidedly average with little interaction from the staff and the food was just ok. Best thing was the drinks. Wouldn’t recommend it when there is other far better...More

Don't bother with this place. After a whole hour looking for this place, my friends and I were turned away because we were told "Japanese only!" So if you're not Japanese don't come period. Waste of time!!

Me and my friends visited the restaurant for a birthday dinner. It was a fun and different experience. It wasn't really scary, more funny. The food and drinks are not the best, but absolutely ok. The prices is what you could expect from a theme...More

This place must have started out as an exciting idea, but it was so poorly executed. There's no consistent theme. We walked through the entrance to find some horror theme decor. But then an employee dressed like a policeman came to get us. This guy...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.
