Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wowza!!! Amazing to experience these fluffy bits of goodness made fresh and with delicate preparations of sauces and accompaniments. Can’t say enough. Foodies from New York and we’re blown away!

Total waste of time. Place empty 1 hr 10 minutes before closing. Trying to turn away a couple who had booked. It appears that they don't want customer after 1 700 hrs told reception was closed ( a till ??) Sign for the place had...been hidden from view at the entrance exactly the same problems at the other one the night before. Far to much hassle save yourself time & effort and try one of the local bakeries excellent cakes and pastries.More

We had some yummy pancakes here. The wait time from ordering does take a while (40 minutes) because of the way the pancakes are cooked. Menus are provided in Japanese and English. Definitely recommend making a reservation in advance (we booked via table log) as...it means you can walk right in at your time. We walked past a queue of 10 couples. These weren’t the best pancakes we had during our trip but they were still delicious.More

Restaurant opened at 10, got here at 10:15 and waited for an hour when there were 10 open tables. Only two waiters the whole time. Once seated, food and coffee took 35+ minutes instead of the 20 that was quoted. Pancakes were mealy. This place...is overratedMore

Pancakes here didn’t fail! Soft fluffy and light. Had a chance to taste the seasonal flavour, the strawberry pancakes too! Would definitely visit again if I’m in Tokyo :)

Beautifully made pancakes but they tasted very eggy. The ice cream and syrup saved the taste but I wouldn’t eat there more than once. Slow service and a bit of a wait to get in. We all were served separately too

First we had to wait for about 20 minutes. I ordered a savory pancake with an omelette and a salad. The food was ok. A friend of mine had a sweet pancake and that one had a great taste! Next time I would order the...sweet one!More

I have tried different fluffy Japanese pancakes shops in Tokyo and this one is pretty good but not the best. Pancakes are incredibly fluffy and light but they definitely have a strong eggy taste. Their drink selection is delicious. I highly recommend their hot royal...milk tea. The place is extremely busy and I suggest making a reservation or getting there as soon as they open in the morning if you want to avoid waiting 2 hours.More

My teen found this restaurant on Instagram and we thought we would give it a try. We got there about 11:45 on a Saturday and waited about 10 minutes to be seated. Get the Strawberry with white chocolate pancakes. Simply delicious! I would go here...again in an instant. So good.More

Worth to try in Omotesando area, have a good fluffy pamcakes. They have the savory one as well, until 14.30. The place is quite hidden in basement, but still easy to find and worth to eat pancake indeed.

My fam and I tried 6 different flavours. I think its not the best pancake Ive ever had. Its much too eggy for me. So I was kinda disspointed with the overall taste, especially after waiting and standing in line for 40minutes. The cream topping...is delicious tho. I also thinks its overpriced.More

I went with my sister -- it was incredible. I had the manuka honey pancake, she had the one with cream cheese and berries that was essentially cheesecake. We both loved our food!

Soft, fluffy, slightly sweet. Good any time of the day. We tried the savory versions. Oh, so good! The photos on the site exactly reflect what you get in the restaurant. Staff speaks enough English to be able to communicate without any problem, polite and...prompt.More

My husband had their original pancake and I had the tiramisu pancake. Both were awesome and super fluffy. They are exactly what you see in pictures/videos of Japanese souffle pancakes. The interior is charming and relaxing but I can see this place getting crazy busy...at times. We were lucky to have come when they opened so we got right in.More

This review is actually for the “A happy pancake” in Shinjuku which is not yet listed on Tripadvisor. We were spoiled by the fluffy pancakes from the "Original pancake house" in Lumine EST the past week. When we got lost again & stumbled upon another...pancake place we excited to try. It was relatively dissappointing. We ordered the panacake with berry sauce and tiramisu pancake with expresso. They were essentiallt original pancakes with different sauces. There was just something not right with the pancake: its less fluffy, less jiggly than the other place, also the interior was more dry. We did however appreciate the butter & the generous amount of Hokkaido whipped cream on each plate. Overall the pancakes we had were good by American standards but def a few notches beneath its competitor across the street. Perhaps not all fluffy pancakes are created equal afterall.More

There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
