My family and I visited this much-hyped alley for dinner tonight and left feeling cheated and disappointed. As there were five of us and the kids were hungry, we selected one yakitori restaurant that had enough seats. Big mistake! The restaurant was near the north end of the alley. The food was below average and the chicken did not taste fresh. The biggest shock came with the bill. It cost 10,000 yen, when our own calculations based on the menu prices came up to only 6,000 at most. After some queries, they admitted that there was a table charge of 350 yen per person and the tofu appetizer they gave us (which we thought was complimentary as it was just plain tofu) cost another 350 yen per person. None of these was made known to us upfront and only explained when we questioned them. This incident has marred our otherwise perfect Tokyo trip so far. Quite a shame to have such a thing happen in Japan!
