This was our first time here, abd it was super exciting. I don't want to spoil all the fun. You just have to try it by yourself and experience the thrill. For the food itself, it was good, wasn't a 5 star, but a well enjoyed and unique. You should try!!

We went here because we where looking for something crazy... and it is. Don't go with kids and don't take it too serious!! The food is nothing special but for sure the menu/drink list will make you frown. We had some weird drinks there.

Drinks and a show. Recommend booking we didn't and had to wait to be seated for a drink. Very DIFFERENT experience. If you're not open minded don't waste your time. If you do go, let your hair down and have some fun.

Saw this place on YouTube and looked fun. First they charge 500 yen entrance fee. That would be okay but drinks were super expensive and small. My son ordered a non alcohol juice drink for $15.00 and it's in a small tea cup size container. When we ask for re-fill was surprised to be told that's was it. 3 drinks... More

If you go into this restaurant with the right mindset than you will not be disappointed. First off, if you are expecting a 5-star meal with good quality food than this is not the place to go. But, if you are looking for a unique dining experience, one that you will remember for a while, than I would highly recommend.... More

The theme is well done and we didn't have to wait long even though we didn't have a reservation. It is a fun experience and a must go at least once, but after the first time it will all seem repetitive.

This bar/restaurant is great fun. The entire place is prison/hospital/sex themed throughout including the decor, waiters and much of the food and drink. I went with my girlfriend and we had a really fun evening, we played along with the waiters and they just upped the antee. I've go to agree with many other reviews that the food isn't great... More

This themed bar is not for the light hearted. The food menu will not be to everyones liking, but come with an open mind and you will have a good time. Cocktails are reasonably priced. The upstairs "cells" were extremely hot, but the nurses were quick to offer a helping sponge bath. :-)

This is our second time to this restaurant. First time it was the Fall of 2013. Food and drinks were pretty good, and the atmosphere was really fun. 3 years later we decided to try it out again. Wow. What a change. The menu, the feel, the prices.... all so different, and not for the better. We had to wait... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
