The alley lining the elevated tracks near Yurakucho Station in central Tokyo is famous for yakitori (grilled chicken skewers). Having a few skewers and an Asashi with salarymen fresh out of their offices in the financial district is an awesome experience, and quintessentially Tokyo.Popular withBudgetFoodiesLocal

Great sushi, but the fact that you have to wait about one hour in line and then sit in a very, very tiny place to eat only seven pieces of sushi in ten minutes kind of ruins the experience altogether. To enjoy places like this and any other sushi place around the Fish Market you need to come with your ...Popular withBudgetFoodiesLocal
Stunningly gorgeous and expensive. A great surf and turf spot with stellar views of the city. Definitely more enjoyable if you are traveling on an expense account but worth a visit for a special occasion. For a budget-friendly alternative, visit for brunch. The brunch course is good value. You won't get the night time views but you may catch that ...Popular withFoodiesLuxuryBusiness

Everything that Metropolitan Dining does is good and T.Y. Harbor is no exception. Though off the beaten path and a bit hard to find, this is as close as you get to a Pacific Northwest Brewpub in Tokyo. The food is solid, the beer is good, and the location right on the canal is fantastic. A great place to enjoy ...Popular withOutdoorNightlife

Insanely delicious Cambodian food. Though it takes guts to do it, the best way to experience this restaurant is to say "omakase" and let the owner serve whatever he likes until you are full. The prices are reasonable and everything I have had here (except the Mekong whiskey) is good. My personal favorites are the spicy chicken salad, the fresh ...Popular withAdventureFoodiesVegetarian

Based in Roppongi Hills, this soba house has house-made, hand-cut traditional buckwheat soba. Get it cold with grated mountain yam and enjoy the space. The design is über-modern and funky—there's this totally shredded Al Merrick surfboard on the wall that's been made into a painting. It's just fantastic. There's also an outpost in New York City's Soho!Popular withFoodiesLocal
For anyone desperate for a coffee and a seat, you could do worse than the Starbucks in Shinagawa Station. It's on the second floor and armed with large, dark wood picnic tables to accommodate impromptu graphic lunch meetings with the boss man. Everyone is in dark suits and on a deadline. Those that want to avoid the ear piercing vapid ...Popular withVegetarianLGBTSpiritual

Nice little seafood spot that is very foreigner-friendly. Loved the fish carpaccio with pesto. Has good energy but a little too touristed / filled with Westerners to feel like a discovery even though the location is tucked away in Shinsen.Popular withLuxuryFoodiesLocal
If you're craving coffee and are looking for a GREAT Starbucks alternative, this is the place to go! Tons of them all over Tokyo (and most of Japan's major cities). The coffee is great, the breakfast items and sweets are tasty. It definitely makes starting the day easier...

This is my favorite soba restaurant in Tokyo. There are plenty of good ones but this one has great food and great atmosphere. The menu is difficult to navigate if you don't speak and read Japanese but they have all of the standards. Know what you want in advance and you won't have any trouble. My favorite is the tempura ...Popular withLocalFoodiesDesign

Joel Robuchon’s restaurant. He has Michelin stars on his resume, which is very a great accomplishment. This is one of my favorite restaurant concepts. It’s an open kitchen with everything centered, the griddle is the middle, all the chefs cook there. They have a large counter in the middle, and you face the kitchen while you eat. It's very entertaining: ...Popular withFoodiesLuxuryDesign
One of my favorite restaurants in Tokyo. Grilled robata fare. Excellent energy with the staff shouting out orders to the chefs, who sit in the middle of the counters, serving you beers on a long wooden paddle. Do you know how strong you have to be to lift 3 beers on a 15 ft wooden paddle? Great selection of seafood, ...

This is an awesome Japanese bakery right outside of the Shinjuku train station. We stopped by every morning we were in Tokyo to grab breakfast before getting on the train. They have such a huge variety of breads. Savory ones had hot dogs, chicken or pork cutlets, or croquette baked inside the already tasty bread. Sweet breads were filled with ...

This little spot is truly inspired. As the name suggests, these guys serve breakfast all day. The twist is that they serve a changing global menu. Muesli and English breakfasts are standard but a third country is featured and changes every two months. I popped in for The Bulgarian breakfast for dinner and it was exceptional. Previous menus have showcased ...Popular withAdventureFoodiesDesign
