A very small restaurant with only 8 seats, therefore booking is necessary. We were looking forward to a gastronomic journey - tempura style. Expensive and a good delightful experience to taste. The chef makes the batter and fry it in front of us, and very...More

While I'll admit this is the first proper tempura place I have ever been to, I can't imagine another one being any better. The chef is a marvel to watch and the atmosphere is so intimate and warm. The sound of the cooking oil crackling...More

This was an amazing meal in Tokyo and perhaps our best meal in Japan. Only 8 seats and you certainly need to book in advance (they only take reservations starting one month in advance). The tempura batter is so light and delicious. The ingredients are...More

One of the very, very, tippity-top, best meals I have had in three years of reasonably serious gastronomy in Japan. Every course was flavoursome, balanced, and beautifully presented. Hard to nominate a highlight, but the Australian asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, prawns, anago (sea eel), snapper, and...More

It's hard to know where to eat in Tokyo and, as everyone will tell you, it's hard to get a bad meal. Which makes it all the more exciting to find a perfect meal. We heard about Motoyoshi via the grapevine and, even though I...More

I was there with my company client. At first I didn't know about this restaurant. The moment \I stepped in, it looked quite lonely. Only later did I find out that this is an exclusive place where you have to make reservations in advanced. Everything...More

Those who have traveled extensively in Japan know how great the restaurants are there. Food preparation and presentation are an art form. A Japanese food critic recommended this place to me when I asked where can I find the best tempura in Tokyo? This was...More

Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
