The only thing good about this place was its ambiance. I ordered the oh-so-famous Murgi lunch which apparently is their most popular item on the menu. It costs 1500 JPY and for that price all I got was a small portion of yellow rice (that...More

The specialty of this store is "Murgh Lunch " (1,500 JPY). Murgh lunch is chicken curry and chicken is very tender. Spicy is mild and easy to eat. It is not particularly delicious, but I also want to eat it again.

You will be assured of being greeted by a super friendly owner. Indian japanese fusion restaurants and one of the most successful restaurants in the whole of Japan.

This place is called the oldest Indian restaurant in Japan. The owner was Mr. Nair and he was at a cashier on the ground floor. He was a very unique and friendly person, and we enjoyed a little conversation. Their curry was based on South...More

The smell attracted me in to this eatery. Owner was friendly. However, the chicken curry tasted horrible. The curry was bland and diluted, and the "chicken" was weird - small pieces of "chicken" with many tiny bones?!! There are better curry elsewhere and more delicious...More

visited this place during lunch, the service was acceptable but the food was nothing fantastic. The curry was watery and they charged 400 yen for a small plate of white rice when 50m away another stall offer free flow of rice and naan.

We ate at this restaurant during our visit to Tokyo this April. It is a small, but popular Indian restaurant. It was very busy during our lunch hour visit. Most of the people eating there seemed to be people working in the neighboring offices. The...More

Very good food. The owner recommends his "Meibutsu" or Famous Dish, which is basmati rice, cabbage and secret chicken curry. Delicious. Highly recommend this place which is in the Ginza area.

This is more a Kerala style food, though it isn't exactly Kerala style either. Apparently this restaurant's been around since the late 1940s, and it doesn't look like it's been updated inside for the last 30 years. The manager is a friendly person. The food...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
