Steak and rice! Always the best combination for dinner! In Ikinari, you can choose different cuts of the beef and the sides. It is basically a fastfood steak house. We had a very satisfying dinner and it was not expensive for the ribeye that we...had. The only down side was that you will smell like grill for the next few hours. Good thing they actually provide laundry spray outside the restaurant so don’t forget to use that!More

t is beyond Shinjuku ISETAN. I was vacant when I went on weekday noon. I am happy to eat delicious meat casually.

We went twice in one week to the Asakusa branch, as it was so good. They offer seating here, so very comfortable. The steaks were really good, better than most asados in Buenos Aires for example, and the prices extremely competitive, ie. Low for what...you get by any international standards. Wish we had this steak house here in Cheltenham, UK!More

We ate a couple of times at Ikinari Shinjuku during our stay. The hamburger pattie comes with soup, rice, salad and a potato. Great value (around $15AUD). Delicious too! One time I had the tenderlion at Y12 per gram. Very nice, although I think you'd...be just as happy with the hamburger. It's a cool thing to do (we don't have this in Australia). Recommended! Go outside of peak times if you can.More

We probably ate 5 times in Ikinari during our 12 day stay in Tokyo..shuttling between the Shibuya and Shinjuku branches! The middle rib is tender and fatty..and the sauces are so yummy! It's super value for money..no frills steak . Enjoyed eating on the hot...plate and the corn.More

Awesome steaks at a great price.if you love a great steak without the ridiculous price, this is it. Its standing only and you are elbow to elbow, but worth it.

Was so good we went back a second time. The main focus is meat and not much to offer in the way of sides. Our main focus was meat and it truly was delicious, we ordered 4 different cuts and each had tasters, was a...great way to test some of the wide range they offer!More

One the few steak restaurants I frequented a lot here in japan.. reviews of the others to come. Ikinari never failed from Oita to Tokyo.. Choose your cut, rib eye, sirloin, striploin, choose you weight, choose your searing.. Do not go well done, shame on...you! Hahah just kidding.. You have it all. Small side dishes of salad and veg are available as is rice and a few sauces.. Selected meat sizes and style can be pre cooked if you can decide on your grams.. Love it!! They even have frequent meat eater card! And a leader board!More

after having fish for days, craved some steak. Someone recommended this place. steak was cooked nicely. I added the soup and salad, it was a bit disappointing. So just stick to the steak. I will go back again. Standing room to eat your steak, and...served on a hot plate. So I wouldn't recommend if you are a family with young kids.More

Yes, maybe an easy 5 minute walk. They don’t take reservations. At busier times you’ll find a queue outside but I recommend being patient and stand in line. It tends to move pretty quick. Great quality and value for the... More

Dun think they take reservations. But helps to give them a call before arriving.
