Looking for a unique delicious japanese diner in a fancy setting. Then Atelier Morimoto will certailnly suprise you in a superb way. Situated in a calm street the restaurant offers a unique setting for both sushi and teppanyaki. We chose the teppanyaki and the Kobe beef was delicious. Local people and tourist are setting next to eachother at a huge round table looking at the cook experts preparing the delicious food. Staff are very friendly and service is excellent. Enjoy!

I have dined in both the Sushi and Teppanyaki sections of the restaurant. The food at both is fantastic, but given the high standard in Tokyo this is not enough to justify the price alone.

The atmosphere and service are what make this place work a visit. In the sushi bar it is intimate, just one sushi chef for every few people.

Down in the teppanyaki part it is a bit more glamorous, but still on the quiet side. The service form the chef to the waiters and management is fantastic, and English speaking. Not just polite, but actually noticing and anticipating needs.

Amazing fusion food with the best of Europe and Japan coming together. The flavors are amazing and the staff take extra care to meet your every need. We left feeling enormously satisfied. Our coats were ready as soon as we were ready to leave! Make a reservation. It gets very busy

My wife and I dined at XEX on the advice of a friend who lives in Tokyo. She raved about celebrity spotting and the vibe of the place - but unfortunately the only night that suited us was a Sunday night. At one point in time we were the only ones in the main Tappan room, which was a little disappointing, but at the same time, it was kind of amazing to have the place to ourselves.

The food was fantastic, expensive - yes, but very, very good, and our chef was most hospitable, with excellent English having spent some time working in Melbourne. We had the cheapest of the set menus (which was still around Y10,000) but we weren't hungry when we'd finished.

The beer was nice and cold and my wife had (as the previous reviewer noted) the fairly lethal "morimartini"! It was a little disappointing that we were charged for the small amount of grapefruit juice that they offered to add to it when it was too much for her.

Our taxi driver had a bit of a hard time finding the place, but it was nice that the restaurant organized a cab home for us.

I'd definitely recommend trying it (if you've got the means and the time) - but perhaps try for a Friday or Saturday night.
