I was basically family at this place. I walked in one day and met the owner, who is one of the most awesome people I've ever known; she's brilliant, fun, and sweet (and pretty hot, too). The chef, serving staff and regulars are also pretty awesome.

The burritos are the best you're going to find in all of Tokyo, plus they're freaking huge. There are also a lot of decent desserts and appetizers.

I was a regular here back in their days in Shibuya, so I can't really speak for the current atmosphere. However, I'm sure it's just as awesome if not even more awesome than it once was. There was a show just about every night. I especially liked the Art Blender event, which still seems to be a monthly thing at the Cow.

In addition, there's plenty to drink! You name the drink, they can probably make it, which is not true of a lot of other restaurants in Japan.

First off, this place is very overpriced (at least 600 yen for a soft drink) and the interior looked old. Also the server was rude and didn't serve me well.

If I could give this place 0 stars I would!

If you want a place with friendly service plus reasonable prices, I'd recommend Roppongi Hills or Tokyo Midtown just down the street. Avoid this place at all costs!

This bar/restaurant located in the heart of Roppongi (across the street from the DON QUIXOTE department store) is a fun place. The food is great (especially their HUGE burritos) and there's always something happening. It seems like the place where a lot of English speaking foreigners in Tokyo like to hang out because of it's cool, laid-back vibe. It feels more like a popular friend's apartment party than a bar/restaurant. The atmosphere is lively and everyone hanging out there seemed really friendly, so even if you stop by on your own, you'll meet some nice people. They also have art hanging here as a monthly "gallery" here so it's a fun feast for the eyes as well. Check it out if you are in Tokyo especially near Roppongi.

But the atmosphere is similar - accomodating for social interesting gatherings, the (vegetarian) food is excellent.

Brilliant Burrittos. Cool Place. The food may look just a tad pricey, but actually the size of the portions more than justifies the price. 1500 yen for a plate of chicken burrittos.

The only real negative is that the drink is a little pricey.

It's away from the hussle and bussle of Shibuya, but actually very close to exit 13, so don't go from Hachiko.

Good atmosphere.

The cook is a master.
