We had heard amazing things about Shima from friends and booked it hoping for an amazing wagyu meal. The steak WAS incredible - absolutely melted in your mouth, I was sad when I ate the last bite - and the wagyu sandwich was worth every...More

Steak shima is in the basement of an office building, no ambiance whatsoever other than everyone is extremely friendly and kind. Most people sit at a counter and make friends with their neighbors. The steak is indescribably good, both the sirloin and the filet. Definitely...More

It's quite difficult to find this steakhouse as it is located in the basement. Advanced reservation is highly recommended to avoid disappointment. The food menu is limited but each dish had been cooked to perfection. I'll recommend that you take the counter seats so that...More

While not quite as "magical" as my first visit, the quality was just as good. I cannot recommend this place enough for anyone in Tokyo looking for one of the best steak experiences you can get.

Casual and small steakhouse. Friendly service. English menu is available so it is useful for non-Japanese speaking diners. Good selection of items on the menu. The quality and the taste of the meat is excellent. The crab croquette is also not to be missed.

I’ve come here twice now with the last time being at least 7 years ago. Both times have been phenomenal. This time we started with asparagus, abalone, foie gras, and salad and everything was delicious. I have hesitation with abalone because it can be fishy...More

Went here for lunch. The steaks were a bit above my price range since I came there to buy the steal sandwich(only take-away as well), so I went for the fish of the day. Steaks were 13 000JPY and the fish 5500JPY Since it’s a...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

Definitely would make a reservation. Reserved myself using Japanese, but if you don't just ask your hotel to do it for you. Or wait in line but it may take a while.

Don’t know if open on New Year’s Day. Even if they were if you don’t have reservation already unlikely you will get a seat. Open only two hours for lunch service.
