Toritsuneshizendo

A good Oyakodon place, best for lunch. If never had Oyakodon and like chicken and fine with undercooked egg, just go give it a shot. It's definitely a sophisiticated Oyakodon and if you end up not liking it much, then don't try Oyakodon go…

IL GHIOTTONE

Well known Italian restaurant that came from Kyoto, Japan. A nice mixture of Italian and Kyoto ingredients and cooking techniques. Modern style dishes that actually taste good, not just good-looking. Proper setting and atmosphere for famil…

Iguchi

Stylish Yakitori restaurant, often used for romantic dinner. Almost like a bar. Course menu only, 20+ different Yakitori dishes come along. Pretty filling and yet reasonably priced. 5 other branches available in Tokyo. Should give one of t…

Maduro

Photo: http://restaurants.tokyo.grand.hyatt.co.jp/maduro-bar/ A luxurious bar located in Grand Hyatt Tokyo. Easy access, non-Japanese customer friendly environment. A bit pricy. Not a private atmosphere but rather open and specious. There'…

Shiawasezanmai

A spin-off restaurant of highly-rated Sanpi-ryoron. Very similar dishes at an even cheaper pricing. Wonderful. Should be fairly likeable for non-Japanese travelers too. Small but comfortable place like eating at your friend's place. My rat…

Meat Yazawa

Photos from website Such a beefy place. Nothing but beef. Don't even think about coming unless you love beef. You eat either beef steak or groud beef steak. The quality of beef is certainly guaranteed. One thing to be careful of is that th…

Shunjukusei

Photo from Tabelog Come here for aged beef and wine to go with. Impressive and yet reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. Fairly casual but stylish enough for a date dinner too. Azabu Juban is the station closest to this restaurant but you ca…

Mantensushi

Photo form website Photos from Tabelog A great 'cost and benefit' Sushi restraurant, 2 branches available in Tokyo. Absolutely no complaints about the quality for this pricing. Come here *after* going to Midori sushi a few times, you'd kno…

Akasaka Shisenhanten

USHIGORO

Photo from Tabelog A typical quality beef place in the Roppongi area. Can be expensive but comes with the food and service appropriate for the price. Recommend it if you are fine spending 10,000 JPY (or more) for an experience, and in fact…

Yakiniku Jumbo

A great option for eating Yakiniku in Tokyo. Pick any of the branches that is close to where you are. You won't regret. Not just Yakiniku but the side dishes are pretty good too. Not cheap and yet worth the cost. Try once and see how you l…

FREY's Famous Pizzeria

Servies well-balanced Italian-style pizzas at resonable prices. Coud be the best Italian pizza place in the Roppongi area, though the other dishes than pizza are quite ordinary. Come for pizzas. Period. My rating: 4.5 FREY's Famous Pizzeri…

PIZZERIA BAGGIO

Asakusa Unatetsu

photos from website Great Unagi (grilled eel) place to stop by for lunch when hanging out in the Asakusa area. You probably want to check out Asakusa anyway as a visitor for its traditional Japanese streets, so take the chance to try this …

Momochidori

Photos from Tabelog. A hidden place for sofisticated pancakes in an traditional Japanese building. Easy to pass by as the sign of the place is hard to find. Very small but cozy. Access isn't very good but you might just want to stroll from…

Shonzui

Photos from TOKYO CALENDAR Place for great aged beef. Even the French fries that come with it are good. Small place but comfortable to come for a date or a good meal with friends/colleagues. Pricing is the only reservation. Wines here are …
