It is time for Shah to inject a dose of reality into this forum. For sure, the food at this place is very good. But keep in mind that you are having excellent Japanese quality beef cooked in Tepanyaki style. In that context, this place is not creating anything out of the ordinary that cannot be found in many other similar establishments.
What sets this restaurant apart, however, is that it is on the 52nd floor. The views are obviously breathtaking, and you see this when you are seated at the bar before being taken to your table. And this is where the breathtaking view ends for most people. You are now – for the next hour or so – looking at an exhaust chimney (a very nice looking one, mind you) as you are seated in one of the semi-circular Tepanyaki tables. You will get to enjoy the view again but only if you opt for the all-inclusive package that includes dessert (which is served at the bar).
It seems that some people get carried away with their reviews, so let Shah give you the full poop on this. If you wish to spend a very ugly amount of money for food that you can get anywhere else at the same quality, then this will be a five-star experience for you, though please don't write a five-star review and mislead other people. Exactly the same food can be had for one-third the price at so many other places in and around Tokyo.
Shah Rukh says: For the amount of money you can spend in one evening here, you can take the train to Kobe and have gobs of choices giving you the same quality or better in terms of food. Not only will you have the bullet train experience but also the bragging rights of having had Kobe beef in Kobe.
Shah Rukh's tip: When making reservations, insist on one of the few tables that actually do give you a window to look out of. Otherwise you are being misled on the "fantastic view".
Complimentary extra tip: If you still want to try this place but don't want to spend two hundred dollars on the full package per person, you can go for just the Kobe beef separately or even the sirloin beef; most people won't be able to tell the difference. The foie gras is really good and can be ordered separately.
