Encouraged by my friends daughter we decided whilst on holiday in Tokyo to go to the “Kill Bill” restaurant. A short taxi ride from Shibuya we arrived at lunchtime at what appeared to be a small home on the edge of the street. To our surprise this opened up into a huge restaurant inside of about 150 covers. The sushi prep area/kitchen was centre stage for all to see. Fantastically atmospheric I was expecting Uma Thurman to leap out at any second! It was a little late for lunch with very few customers which always leaves me a little worried. Our waiter, who was European, quickly seated us and delivered menu’s and took a meal order. He explained that this was in fact not used as the set of the Kill Bill movie but was the inspiration to Tarantino. It looked almost identical! We ordered from the 7 course taster set menu (no pun intended) which arrived quickly. Our two waiters explaining each course as it was delivered. The tempura prawns and vegetables were divine. The batter was as light as air. The soba noodles were tasty and the bacon and asparagus sublime. The Teriyaki chicken skewers were interesting due to the texture. Washed down with warm Saki I was more than happy with my meal. Had it been anywhere else I would have said it was ok but the atmosphere is what made it.
