A tiny slice of Israel in Tokyo. This tiny place caters for a non stop string of people coming and going. The food is all prepared freshly and every dish is delicious. The falafel and hummus are amongst the best I have ever eaten. The...More

This is the best middle eastern restaurant in Japan without a doubt and just maybe the best food in the country. The owner takes great pride in each dish he serves. My wife and I are from Colombia and unfortunately we don't have anything back...More

The food in this small Israeli restaurant is incredible. I took my mother, and the lamb was so good it upset her (because it was better than hers!). The atmosphere is fun - intimate, familiar, friendly - and the owner is a very nice guy....More

One of the best Israeli foods near Tokyo. If you are visiting Tokyo and if you are a vegan or vegetarian then this is one of the best places you are looking at. Friendly staff and wonderful service.

Simple, no frills, well made Middle Eastern food such as felafel, pita, kebabs, salads. Healthy and delicious. Small restaurant with counter and some wine available. Hard to find such food in Tokyo

If you live in Tokyo it's likely you've never experienced Israeli cuisine. It was my first experience as well. I've no idea how authentic it is, but I can say this is some of the best food I've ever had. Amazing use of spices and...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.
