Community Guide to Eating & Drinking in Tokyo

From traditional tempura and nigiri-zushi, Tokyo offers up-market fine dining to cheap and cheerful delights, accompanied by a diverse array of special and unique cafes and bars around the city. Here's our tried and tested guide to the cities top eating and drinking spots.

Bear Pond Espresso

"Strict no photo policy and you're expected to choose your coffees quickly. Founder Katsu Tanaka learnt his craft over nearly 20 years in NYC learning how to master the coffee bean"

Luke's Lobster

"Delicious lobster on the premium end of the pricing scale"

Campbeltoun Loch

"Downstairs basement whiskey bar with 400 odd whiskeys. Only has 8 seats and when we say smokey, we ain’t talking just about the whiskey"

Little Soul Cafe

"With an impressive collection of records, with all the best from 60s soul to rare groove, and modern funk to disco - this is the place for anyone into music"

BAR GHETTO

Small intimate bar, with good drink and better vibes

Robot Restaurant

"Infamous Robot Restaurant is a one a kind experience. A bit of a tourist trap, but fully worth it nonetheless, its Japan's answer to cabaret"

Maisen

"Really good restaurant serving the most popular of Japanese comfort foods"

Trump Room

"Dripping with chandeliers and oozing metallic decadence, Trump Room offers a chic place to drink and party. No affiliation to you know who"

Darwin Room

"A very cool bookshop and a sweet space for creatives. Come here to sip coffee while surrounded by used books and odd trinkets"

Bar Martha

"Bar Martha is the go-to listening bar in the city, it's got one of the best sound systems. Grab a drink, listen to a DJ spin some vinyl"

Jazz Blues Soul Bar

"A sick vinyl bar with over 10,000 records warm sounds and a lot of fine whiskey"
