Not the best food ever but still very good. The atmosphere is awesome, the waiters seem to be all friends, they seem they are having fun. Definitely one of the best places in Tokyo for the atmosphere.

Unpretentious local eatery.
Don't forget to take off your shoes once you enter.
The food is fantastic. The staff very friendly. They speak enough English.
This is a must visit in the Roppongi area.
Make a reservation.
A very enjoyable experience.

All that has been written about Jomon is true. Only tip I can offer is give the cab driver the entire address code number so he can find it. (like Zip but more detailed#) Loud, fun, great food etc. Just go here.

Highly, highly recommended.

My wife and I booked for 8:30 pm but, due to our flight home being messed around we turned up at 6:30 pm to see if we could eat early. After some confusion (I must learn to pronounce my name correctly in Japanese!) we finally got a seat. The guy did go out of his way to try to accommodate us and it was really appreciated.

The atmostphere is great, really 'buzzy'. Unless in a big group, you'll probably sit around the front of the bar where all the food is laid out and cooked on the bbq. There are tables and even a private room around the back for bigger groups.

The food was perfect, done to absolute perfection. We had about 15 things from the menu, with a few repeat visits for the best (the beef skirt and Japanese green peppers get special mention), but all of them really tasty.

As you end up eating so much (small serving sizes combined with decliciousness!), it's not a cheap option although each dish seems quite cheap. With four beers and about 15 dishes, we spent close around £40-50. It was definitely worth it, for the food and for the experience.

You should definitely try to book if you can, maybe get a Japanese friend or your hotel to book - our basic Japanese and their basic English was barely enough to explain our reservation situation.

Thought the beef was a little over priced however the choice was superb and the atmosphere brilliant. Well worth a visit even if just for the buzz. If you book (which is highly recommended) don't turn up late as there is a queue of people waiting to take your place.
