The Michelin Guide has consistently awarded more stars to Tokyo dining establishments than any other city in the world. I created this blog as my personal Tokyo restaurant guide, but I hope you will also enjoy reading it.

Osteria Baccano, Shibuya オステリアバッカーノ 渋谷

In the middle of the love hotel district in Shibuya lies Osteria Baccano. I stopped here with a friend by chance and ended up having a thoroughly delightful and reasonably priced meal. The menu allows you to order a range of dishes at a per person rate depending on how many dishes you take. We had a little sausage to start, followed by lobster linguine (topped by half a real lobster), fish, lamb and dessert. Including a half caraffe of wine this feast came out less than 10,000 yen. The food was fresh, well cooked and tasty. What more could anyone ask for?

Oak Door, Grand Hyatt Roppongi オーク ドア グランド ハイアット 東京

The Oak Door is one of a number of restaurants to be found at the elegant Grand Hyatt in Roppongi. This restaurant is one of my safe but good choices for business lunches in Tokyo. The service is good, the surroundings extremely elegant and the food is of very high quality. My favourite would have to be the lobster salad, which is a bit pricey at 4,500 yen but well worth it. For some reason every time I visit I end up drinking champagne - but that's not compulsory! Perhaps the atmosphere of sheer luxury is to blame.
