Ukai Tei is a one-michelin star teppanyaki restaurant. It has several branches and I have eaten in the branches in Omotesando and Ginza. To start off, having a top chef cook the food in front of you in a private room is an honour not...More

We had a pleasant evening in this attractive restaurant. Service was attentive and polite. Pricing is extremely high. Kobe beef selection was probably consistent with other restaurants. However other entrees and appetizers were very expensive and portions minimal. Single asparagus spears at $20, Caesar salad...More

My title basically summarizes the experience completely. The restaurant itself is beautiful and elegant. The service is high class and attentive. The food is presumptuous but flavor wise falls quite short but the prices are the opposite quite high. I wouldn't say it was bad...More

average cost for one person is AUD$320 we chose the set menu with abalone. The food is yummy but still felt over priced. The service is good but not that comfy we definitely can get sth better with that price.

This was my 4th time visiting this restaurant, both for lunch and dinner. I visited them every time when I was in Tokyo. It was their delicious food, hospitality, and after all, their free flow desserts that kept me going there again and again. Though...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
