Reviewed 19 December 2019

Was in the building looking for a place for our family ( 2 adults and 1 toddler ) for lunch. Went to the restaurant and asked for a table , manager told us that he didn’t have a high chair ( which was fine cause...we have a baby strap , most Japanese restaurants don’t have a high chair) but he was extremely boorish in his comments. I would NEVER recommend anyone there. A owner/manager with such attitude should never run a f&b outlet.More

Layout of the restaurant is strange ... Entrance uninviting , a reception , a table or two, the kitchen service area then the rest of tables... but a friendly waiter was welcoming. Food was really mixed from a really excellent Caprese salad with super tasty...Japanese tomatoes ( good enough to bring me back ) to a Gnocchi that was pasty and soggy but with a good beef sauce. Decent pastas. Also a well roasted but rather tasteless beautiful piece of pork - just nearly made it ! The one friendly and attentive waiter seemed to have to do most of the work whilst the others were chatting and had to be called by other diners for various needs. Sad service coordination for a restaurant in Japan.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
