Fine restaurant with beautiful garden under the Tokyo tower and very sophisticated cuisine. Homemade tofu and fresh fish in a traditional Japanese setting, with costume waitresses. Great for business dinner.

Do not understand why is this restaurant is rated as one of the best in Tokyo. I will never visit this place again. It appears to be very difficult to book but actually the restaurant was fairly empty. I went there for the Tofu and guess what ~ with a 8 course dinner set, only 2 dishes with tofu and... More

Was staying nearby at the Prince Park Tower hotel and this was the closest restaurant with a good TA ranking. It's right at the base of Tokyo tower, and walking into the restaurant through the access path, the view of the tower is great as it is evenly lit to a glowing orange. The aesthetic considerations of the designer of... More

Kaiseki options (as well as private rooms), but tofu is the star of the restaurant. Go for a long lunch much... More

What an experience... Serene, relaxing restaurant serving a very good Kaiseki meal with Tofu and Kobe beef as absolute highlight. The entire experience took a good two hours and we loved every minute of it.

We ate at Ukai Tofuya on a rainy day with a family group including a ten year old and six adults for lunch. The restaurant was recommended by a Japanese colleague. The venue was very nice in an lovely garden just down the road from Tokyo Tower. The servers were very patient with us. We ordered set lunches and our... More

My partner called this the best meal of his life. It is pricey, but the service, atmosphere and food make it all worth it. Our server was so kind to my 8 year old daughter. They have a children's set which includes a wide variety so every child should be able to find something.

As a European, I can't fully express what a great experience it was to visit this place. It's true that tofu is not entirely my taste but the variety of different servings meant that I was full by the time we left. The surroundings are truly lovely and the service was excellent. Food presentation was impeccable. It's not cheap but... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
