  • Elio Locanda Italiana (Italian / Ichigaya)
  • 2009/10/06
  • Excellent 'neighbourhood'-style Italian. Good price and great food. Very popular at lunchtimes with 'ladies who lunch' and business types.
  • Priya Indian Restaurant (Curry / Hiroo)
  • 2009/10/06
  • Finally found it: an Indian restaurant which is as good as you'll find in the UK. It's not like Red Fort (i.e. no michelin stars) but it'll beat anything on Brick Lane. This is the one and only Indian restaurant that I go back to time and time again.
  • West Park Cafe: Yoyogi-uehara (American / Others)
  • 2008/04/01
  • Went here for the brunch. The eggs benedict are very good and the burgers and cakes looked very tempting. A very good spot if you are in the neighbourhood, however if you are willing to travel then the eggs benedict at either Cabana or Good Honest Grub (nearest station for each is Ebisu) are superior. West Park Cafe gets very popular and you'd do well to phone ahead at least an hour in advance in order to reserve a place.
  • Life (Italian / Yoyogiuehara)
  • 2008/04/01
  • A pretty good Italian. Specialises in Slow Food. They make only 6 pizza doughs a day, so you want to get there early if you're going to get a pizza. Excellent pastas.
  • Fonda de la Madrugada (Mexican / Harajuku)
  • 2008/03/11
  • The best Mexican which I've had in Tokyo. The restaurant is intimate and dark. The food is superb. The mariachi band is a plus. If you have a hankering for Mexican food then this is the place to come
  • Chao Thai: Shibuya Dogenzaka (Thai / Shibuya)
  • 2008/02/29
  • A reasonably priced Thai in a good location. The menu is comprehensive and the dishes are above average. Generally the food doesn't pack as much as a taste wallop as you might want it to. But when a meal for two (without booze) comes to only 3000 you can't really complain. I've tasted a variety of dishes here and I'd say that the only thing to watch out for is the quality of chicken used in their curries can be surprsingly bad. The curries themselves taste very good, but the meat was a drawback. Of course if you opt for prawns or fish in your curry then there won't be an issue here.

    Of note, this restaurant also sells a collection of Thai spices, coconut milk, curry paste and other goods to take home and use in your kitchen.


  • Ghungroo (Curry / Omotesando, Aoyama)
  • 2008/02/28
  • Pleasant staff and a well thought out interior. The food, whilst better than most curry houses in Tokyo, is not up to the standards of a good Indian in the UK (or India). Unfortunately the rice is standard Japanese rice (albeit yellow in colour), not basmati.
  • Raj Mahal: Shibuya (Indian & South Asian / Shibuya)
  • 2008/02/28
  • The nosh here is above average, but nothing more. It's better than most places in Tokyo, but I am still searching for an Indian which is up to the standards of a good Indian in the UK or India. The quest continues...

  • Shabuzen: Shibuya (Shabu-Shabu, Sukiyaki / Shibuya)
  • 2008/02/28
  • Above average. I've been a number of times and will go again.

    Meat can be a little fatty, but not too much so. A wide range of tasty side orders. Friendly English speaking staff. Go for the all-you-can-eat option, it's pretty good value.

    It's the place from Lost In Translation, if that makes a difference.

    It has a public area
