This has to be the most unique meal I have ever had. Impressive innovativeness, assiduous attention to detail, and playful puns on food names – plus the conversations with Chef Kento – all made for an unforgettable experience. And the food is really good, too,...More

TMB wasn't just a great culinary journey, but also a fun and engaging experience. Ping, the esteemed chef, was funny, entertaining and fun. He made the experience truly unforgettable, and we certainly look forward to paying him a visit on our next trip to Tokyo.

It was interesting. I think that you may go, but do you get tired a little once? The cooking was common.

This was a fantastic taster menu. Kento and his colleague (sorry I've forgotten his name- but was from Kent in England) produced an incredible meal. It was a wonderful experience- just a small number of us around the bar which made it intimate and personal,...More

A wonderful experience with a gracious chef. Every dish was great, which is no small feet when there are around 14 of them. Sitting at the bar with only 8 seats, it is dinner and a show.

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

I can't quite recall exactly, but in GBP, it's a few hundred (depending on what you choose to drink as well).
