A good restaurant offering a range of Japanese food, in a bustling atmosphere.The chefs welcome you as you arrive with shouts. Some unusual items on the menu. There are few of these restaurants in Tokyo. Liked it a lot.

Don't be fooled by the fact this restaurant is on the 14th floor - it not a quiet place at all. Rather its a great surprise to arrive to such a bustling venue, a live yakitori cooking station, tatami rooms with sunken tables and then upright seating in the center where you feel part of the action. Chefs shouting 'irashaimsase' to the arrival guests.
From the moment you arrive you will be spoilt for choice from their wide menu offering all styles of Japanese food, Sake, beer.
We enjoyed tempura, various yakitori cooked to perfection with the charcoal aroma, ginko beans. Next to us people ate Sushi, and most people ate family style ordering items and sharing them on the table.
A great place for 3 people and up (groups) not the quiet sort of couples place. Food fast and served by efficient staff. This place was such a delight we would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a great Tokyo night, excellent food, service and setting.

My first time in Tokyo. My first time visiting Gonpachi.

Had an excellent view. We were in the sushi bar, watching the chefs making the great dishes.

Went here two times, and will come back next time I go to Shibuya!

Gonpachi in Shibuya has really delicious Japanese Tapas style food. (think lots of little skewers). The restaurant has a really nice open area, but also has a number of private rooms for business dinners. I really enjoyed the toro (fatty tuna) skewers and beef skewers. This place is not cheap (estimate $100 per person for a full meal with drinks) but it is a good spot for a private business discussion. About 10 minutes’ walk up the hill from the Hachiko Exit.

One of the Gompachi Chains at the top of Dogensaka in Shibuya, it is conveniently located about 10minute walk from Shibuya Station. Let's say one third of the guests are non-Japanese but do not worry. Some of the service staff speak good English, and other languages.

However the food, the service, and the prices are not something special, Actually you can find cheaper Izakayas at more reasonable price with more real Japanese atmosphere nearby.
Even if you do not speak any Japanese, there should be little problems in Tokyo.

This restaurant is a good Izakaya at entry level for non-japanese but not more.
