“loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Very good quality, skills, ambiance and services.
A tad pricy, but not for what you get.
Will definitely try it again.

“Great value at lunchtime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We read a review of Edition Koji Shimomura's fixed price lunch deal during a recent visit to Tokyo and managed to get a table for the next day. It was excellent - really interesting flavour combinations, beautifully presented, and with great service (despite the fact that we got a bit lost on the way and arrived rather late). Kitchen managed to arrange instant alternatives when they found out that only one of us ate meat. Highly recommended.

“Precious Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Visited Michelin 2 stars restaurants in Tokyo. Chef Koji's cuisine was so elegant and creative. You should go!

“Underwhelming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

This restaurant was to be the highlight of one of our trips to Japan. However, it turned out to be anything but. Service was attentive and professional and that is probably the best thing about the entire experience. Food was pedestrian and certainly in my opinion not worthy of its lofty position amongst the stars of michelin. The fish covered in crunchy fried noodles and dusted with cheese shavings tasted bland - this was apparently the signature. The rest of the courses were similarly forgettable. Perhaps this was the intention as the chef supposedly does not use butter or cream in his cooking. Regretfully this was not my cup of tea.

“A hidden jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

An amazingly sophisticated meal in a very unobtrusive location under a tower block of offices/housing. Beautiflly prepared and presented dishes. After so much fish recently I especially loved the mini hamburghers as appetiser and, later, the succulent venison, but the fish, fried encased in noodles, with its broccoli sauce was superb. Our big disappointment, after seeing wonderful chestnut desserts being served to other tables, was that they were 'out' of this dessert when our time came and so we had no choice and ended up with a chocolate dessert + chocolate tea, whic was good but at these prices I do not understand why/how we were denied our choice!
