Omotesando Ukai-tei

5-10-1 Jingumae
5th Fl. Gyre Bldg.
Tokyo, Japan
TEL: 81-3-5467-5252

Considered by some to be the best teppanyaki (iron grill) restaurant in Tokyo, Omotoesando Ukai Tei recreates the ambience of a 19th-century wealthy merchant home with marble floors, floor-to-ceiling panel paintings, antiques in glass display cases, and dark wood and upholstered furniture. City views can be seen through wall-sized windows or diners can watch their meal being prepared by white-jacketed chefs at the semi-circular open grill. Ukai-gyu beef (a meticulously fed black beef) is the house specialty, but seafood (including caviar-topped lobster cocktail) runs a close second, prepared in with Asian-European fusion techniques.

Insider Tip:

Just a short walk away is the Oriental Baazar, a one-stop shop for high-quality Japanese souveniers, from paper goods such as fans and screens to kimonos and tea sets.
