Great great food! I tried the set menu and every course that came was absolutely delicious. I'll be going again for sure.
Loved everything about the place. Food was magnificent and the vibe created by the staff made it all the more memorable. Will absolutely be back every time we’re in Japan. Oishi desu ne!
We found this place on a whim but with open table got a reservation super easily. The place was empty as we sat to eat right when they opened but it filled up quickly. The staff was friendly/lively and spoke a decent amount of English. They offered great sake choices and we opted for the coursed meal which was incredible. 100% recommended.
We were visitors from New Zealand and friends living in Tokyo had recommended this restaurant. It was a great little spot, really friendly staff and the food was fantastic.
great food and great value - courses are great good for great value.
Good friendly service! One of my favorite places
Food is still great after a 10+ year visit! Must have tuna ribs, tuna tartare, the diy sushi and miso soup! kaikaya has a great vibe, fun and casual.
A wonderful Tokyo culinary experience! Good food and fun atmosphere. We had a lot of fun and would come back again!
This is an absolutely amazing place. Their course meal is really good and quite a good value. If you go here you shouldn't have anything planned for afterwards as the meal will probably last for at least two hours. It's great to go with friends, talk, drink and have fun and just enjoy all the dishes that come.
I was in Tokyo for business and absolutely had to get a dinner in at Kaikaya. Having eaten there for the first time a few months ago, it's now become a must and I look forward to my next trip to Tokyo so I can, once again, indulge in their tuna and Cherry blossom ice cresm!
Friendly service, really good food and reasonably priced.
We loved it as much that we repeat it! We had 2 different suggestions from different friends from Mallorca and it really worth it. The Scallop rissotto is the TOP 1 in Tokyo! Taste it.
Good tasty food at reasonable prices. Worth a visit every time I am in Tokyo.
Fun atmosphere. Good location. Food was just ok. Good service.
I️ highly recommend Kaikaya to anyone and everyone! They were extremely accommodating even after we missed a train and then were a little late. Once we got there they made us feel welcomed. This was the best service we’ve ever received anywhere, I️ would come back to Japan just to visit Kaikaya. Take recommendations from staff, they know what they are doing and won’t steer you wrong! This meal was unforgettable and absolutely a highlight of our trip. I’ll never forget Kaikaya!
Very good food, good place for friend gathering, nice people there
This place was awesome. Great food and fun, hip vibe.
We had a fabulous night at Kaikaya by the Sea. Food was great and the staff so friendly and attentive.
A great place for a special occasion or just for a night out. We’ll be back next time we are in Tokyo.
Great, creative fish dishes (also a good salad with chicken) as always. Very informal, a bit noisy. Unusual comination of Japanese/Western food, emphasizing fish. Been coming here for several years when in Tokyo. Quite popular with foreigners and Japanese so reservations essential.
Kaikaya never disappoints. I have been there a few times to entertain friends and bosses and they are amazing. Food is great and service friendly.
The ambiance is also special. It’s hard to get the casual and friendly kind of ambiance in Tokyo. Most restaurants turns out to be boring and cold but not Kaikaya. It’s fun and it’s relaxing and good for casual night out with friends.
A must try in Tokyo!
I took my brother here during his visit to Tokyo and we had the best time! The seafood is so fresh, and the set menu made it easy to order. The portions were great and easy to share. They were serving sakura ice cream when we went and I still think about it to this day. Also the location is great to walk around in afterwards. There are so many good restaurants in Tokyo but few that have great food, great service, and a vining atmosphere. 10/10 will go back!
We chose one of the pre set menus. The middle one. Ten great dishes. I will definitely come back. Tack så mycket!
Awesome service, great variety of food with their set courses, and amazing pricing for what you got. Must come. Reservations are highly recommended as we saw many people get turned away.
Excellent seafood and fun, friendly staff. The menu is creative, fresh and extensive.
We went based on a recommendation from a friend and the dinner was exceptional. Great vibe and great food.
My wife and I ate at Kaikaya on our last night in Tokyo and loved it. The food and service were perfect.
The ambience is vibrant and fun, lots going on, waiters make the restaurant fun. The food is good local produce and good quality.
The restaurant is a tourist trap due to the 'great marketing' via various websites....
Enjoy. You'll have fun and good food
I was here 8 years ago and it left such a great impression that 8 years later I had to come back. KAIKAYA has grown in size and for good reason! It now has two stores side by side and even on a Thursday it was packed and prebooking the day before only had a 9pm slot.
The atmosphere is still as vibrant and chill as before. Lots of action in the kitchen (new branch not as open concept for customers to interact with kitchen though) and prices are very fair and affordable. Food was just as good and being a fish restaurant, the fish dishes were excellent but even the Kobe beef sushi was great.
Only thing is it's so busy that food can take a while to be served (ultimately led us to cancel the steak, but we were stuffed anyways). Drink menu was great and also reasonably priced.
Will be back for sure and this time hopefully sooner than 8 years!!
When was born, I had a severe allergy of seafood. That allergy subsided when I reached 11-12 years old. So I've always had this "discomfort" of eating seafood, it has never been a first choice for me.
However, I tried this place under the recommendation of a friend. And he was right, the food was prepared so well that I actually enjoyed seafood for the first time in my life.
The menu is creative yet basic. The ingredients used are of high quality, combined with the experienced, precise cooking process, the food comes out in a marvelous taste. I never thought seafood can taste this good.
If you like seafood or wish for a gourmet dining experience in Tokyo, you have to try this place out.
We had a great time at Kaikaya by the Sea - creative & delicious food, incredibly welcoming staff, and a lovely spot off the main street of Shibuya.
The service was excellent and the staff happy to adjust their set course meal to accommodate our requests. The food was delicious! The environment was really fun.
Excellent and creative cuisine with the 10 plates menu.
Great good and waiters who make A good show / performance
That is fantastic food, which is very fresh and delicious.
Great food, especially sea food. Staff is friendly, good value for money overall.
The food was fantastic! My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. The exterior and fit out weren't as fancy as we were expecting but the dishes were amazing!! Would definitely return. Lovely staff. Definitely try the 8 or 10 course tasting menu. Book in advance as they were turning customers away.
