My husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch on our trip to Tokyo. It was delicious and affordable. The owners and staff were very friendly. They had an english menu with pictures, so we knew what we were ordering. The waitress explained the dishes and how to eat them. We ordered a multi-course lunch so we were able to try a wide range of dishes. We enjoyed the traditional setting in a relatively small tatami dining room which was decorated with art. We had a view of their lovely garden and waterfall. While various tofu dishes were the main focus of the menu they also had some chicken and seafood. So you don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy it.

The winner in vegetarian that we saw in Tokyo and a delightful setting! Perfect lunch after doing Tokyo National Museum. Sitting overlooking the zen water garden was fine. Tofu in many fine ways. Share w friends (I know, not Nihongo kosher to do) because wasn't bad dish on menu.

If you can manage to find this little gem, I'd highly recommend it. A multi-course dinner of tofu prepared as many ways as you can imagine. Subtle flavours yes, but absolutely delicious. In a beautiful tatami mat room

Sasa-no-Yuki is a old-school Tokyo tatami-style restaurant (take shoes off on the way in) in Taito. Its multi-course tofu feast will give you more different varieties of tofu than you may ever have dreamed possible--and they are all delicious. This was an unforgettable Tokyo experience.

This restaurant has a modest front and is in a rather industrial part of Tokyo, and is
less than 5 minutes' walk from Uguisudani JR Station (one stop north of Ueno). But when you walk in, it is almost like entering another world: serene; like a relic of yesteryear.

The traditional Japanese way of serving food is extremely dainty and attractive (little ornate dishes atop a big lacquered tray). The tofu courses are truly innovative, and each dish is varied and unique - silken tofu, a rice broth sprinkled with firm tofu, sesame tofu cake, tofu ice cream... and they are all amazingly delicious. The dining area looks out onto a beautiful internal courtyard with a Japanese landscape, the guests sit on tatami mats, and the staff are in kimono.

There is an a la carte menu but the simplest thing to do seems to be to order from the set menu, which is basically a taster menu. We ordered the 9-course menu which cost 2,600yen, and found it to be a very comfortable amount of food for lunch.

I have recommended this place to family and friends, and I think it is a unique and very memorable experience. Definitely one of the top highlights from our latest trip.
