We visited Andy's (Shin-Hinomoto) at Yurakucho, on the spur of the moment after reading some reviews. This was after a few days of blundering into Japanese speaking only restaurants and ordering "random" food (which turned out excellently and was fun - but that is another story). I had a bit of unspoken misgiving - can an "english speaking" Izakaya place owned by a Brit no less, be "authentic" and serve good Izakaya?
We showed up on a Thursday evening at about 7pm - restaurant was full and seating was by reservation only. But somehow, Andy and his lovely staff managed to squeezed us into a booth and accommodated us. The staff was very nice about everything and they came by with recommendations and pointers - we had so much food and all at a very reasonable (relative to other Izakaya places in Tokyo) price too! And yes to the question - Andy's rocks and is authentic! Love love love the food there....!
The restaurant isnt anything to shout about, but that's exactly it - it has its own charm in its "rustic-ness". I seldom recommend as assertively as this - if you like Izakaya, this is a must go to place! (the sashimi was so fresh!)
