Large Restaurants in Shibuya

I'm taking a group of 12 students to Tokyo this summer and I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations as to where to go for food. I want to give them a taste of Japanese shokudo-style dishes (donburi, udon, rice dishes, etc) but I don't know of any of those types of restaurants that would look gladly on serving that many people at once.

Does anyone know of any good, inexpensive, shokudo-style restaurants in Shibuya or Shinjuku that will hold 12 people at once?

I recommend "Ootoya-Shibuya Koendori shop" Address: Shibuya-ku Jinnnan 1-20-7, Kawahara Build. 2F.

(2F means 1st floor in Japan. ) Tel. 03-3770-5063, running 365 days, 10:00am to 23:00, seats 43.

"Ootoya" is a big chain store restaurant, quality should be well controled, cheap and enough quality.

Sorry next web site is written in Japanese.

I agree Ootoya is good restaurant.

If you prefer REAL shokudo-style and you are going to take a lunch at shokudo,

Tokyo Metropolitan Government shokudo


Aoyama university Gakusei shokudo (students cafeteria)


NHK shokudo



The process of ordering and payment at shokudo is difficult for foreigners.

Usually it's similar to cafeteria style.

Go early or be prepared to wait in line for a long time. Place is very popular due to the price. (Ootoya)
