The environment of the restaurant is nice if you enjoy an energetic one. The price was a bit over.
My all time favorite restaurant in Japan. If you like seafood eat here. It’s great for adventurous eaters or timid eaters. Every person I’ve taken here loves it.
Amazing and surprising food and a great experience. Got for the set menus
Second time and super good as the first time. Great and fresh seafood. Hope to go back soon.
When I lived in Japan 9 years ago I used to go to this Restaurant a lot. The meal we had the other night was exceptional. The service was amazing. This is a must go to Restaurant.
It is a great place for dinner. There was a great environment! And the food was INCREDIBLE. We haven’t more days at Tokyo, but if we have, I think we had repeat the experience days later.
Excellent course and very nice atmosphere. We will enjoy it again.
It’s our first trip to Tokyo together and we choose something casual. Food is good but too noisy and even with booking, you don’t get your table at the appointed time.
The. Food was absolutely fantastic. The service was incredible as well. The place however was too noisy. There was a large group of apparently Brazilian people that behaved as if they were in a stadium. Very unpleasant.
Been a number of times previously and it never disappoints.
I’m sad to give a bad review- but I wish I had known before we went as this was our one night out in Tokyo and we totally failed. It was loud, dirty, communal tables, terrible food, bad beer and we were surrounded by drunk people at our table!! Not the quiet, orderly, attention to detail and respect for the craft of cooking like we had experienced elsewhere in japan😞
Great place. More touristy than expected and we felt pressure to order the set menu but the food was excellent, and the service outstanding. Overall fun experience.
Everything was good. A local tour guide recommended this restaurant but turned out not to be the place we had heard about about the ‘tuna carving experience’ so we were mislead from what we were expecting. However, I would dine at this restaurant again, now knowing what I know.
A great meal in Shibuya! The place is small and was very lively during our visit. It's got that kinda grungy foodie vibe where the ambiance and decor are laidback but you know they mean business in the kitchen. The service was good and the food menu was pretty impressive.
We weren't super hungry so we went with a la carte options and the portions were of a good size. That being said they have some tasting menus which look like really complete packages. The tuna spare ribs are really something special and I'd highly recommend them.
Great food and service.
My favourite restaurant in Tokyo! Great food and cool atmosphere.. very friendly waiters. A must go!
This was our best meal in Tokyo, and the atmosphere couldn't have been better for a Friday night out celebrating a successful business trip! Thank you so much for this special experience!
Our meal was delicious! We had one of the set menus and loved everything but especially the tuna cheek, the whole fried fish, and the cherry blossom ice cream! The restaurant was small but lively and not a far walk from Shibuya Station. The service was great-- one of the servers even ran a block after us when he thought we had left our keys at the table.
Really enjoyed our food at Kaikaya by the sea. Also got a lovely Sake!
Great value for money. The owner and chef esa there and very nice guy
Great food and service, tuna spare ribs are just amazing!
Only restaurant I have dined at on every trip to Tokyo and I intend to keep that up!
Increíble experiencia y ambiente. Los meseros súper amigables y la comida espectacular
El servicio fue espectacular, el camarero muy simpático, atendiéndote en buen Ingles en todo momento, nos recomendó buenos platos y disfrutamos del ambiente y del local peculiar.
Very good food, friendly staff, and reasonable pricing.
Really awesome food and service.
This is by far the best restaurant we've done in Japan, this was ending our 2 weeks in Japan and we loved everything: the food, very fresh and so tasty - the home made tofu was incredible! The service was great, all very nice waiters and the atmosphere, very authentic for this type of restaurant.
I highly recommend it, this is worth the price you pay, definitely!
This place is truly Izakaya - I felt immediately at home. The fish is ultra fresh and beautifully prepared. Service is lovely, fast and very attentive. I went as a single person and had a great time - can very much recommend the food and the athmosphere.
A memorable evening, an absolutely delicious meal, and the friendliest staff ever! Recommended by a good friend in Toyko who knows food. We will be back!
Very nice place.
After revisit plan i luv kaikaya : )
Another truly excellent experience at Kaikaya. Food is amazing, service is great, atmosphere is lively. Couldn’t recommend more!
We used to go here prior to having kids. Now the kids are a little older, we went back and absolutely love it still! It’s our goto place every time we go back once a year!
Super friendly staff and great food. Really fun place to spend time at!
Quite an exotic experience.
The service is great.
However, the food is not very impressively Japanese.
Great food, venue and staff. Great choice of food and didn’t have to wait long at all. The set menus are great!
Nicely positioned down a really cute street.
What a restaurant that you could get a little sneak peek of the local style food and drink! The menu they offer might sound a little pricy at a first glance, but when you get served with a series of fresh sashimi and grilled fish and finish with a sakura flavored icecream... you will never feel the price is ripped off. Overall the food was a little but salty but manageable. Servers and chefs are reeeaaallly friendly so you will be able to enjoy the course menu from head to toe. I would like to revisit this restaurant if I have any other chance to. Definitely recommend! Hands down izakaya in Tokyo!
Well.... the waiter did not have our reservations and (after making us wait for 30 mins after watching people who came in before us get seated right away) offered us sake. We thought it would be on the house- nope! Food was okay. I would've gladly gone somewhere else but we had made a reservation and they would've charged us. Tourist trap for sure. There are better Izakayas. Take your time and go find one.
Perfect food! The atmosphere was typical for Itakaya. Very good 11 course Menü. Highly recommendable!
