“An exquisite Japanese meal”
A culinarily feast made of multiple small courses of exquisitely presented dishes, each looking like a work of art and tasting delicious. Lots of seafood, melt in your mouth sashimi and a wonderful array of vegetables, topped off by dessert and fruit. There was a choice of drinks on a card in Englis...h. Service was in traditional dress and was polite and efficient. Great views from the window. Would highly recommend this experience.

“A Japanese dinner”
A great experience. Very Japanese. The language gap, as do not speak Japanese, was hard, but we ordered one of three set dinners without understanding what we ordered. Course after course came into our private room. Much seafood including lobster and fugo (who knew). Drank lots of sake. Good ti...me.

“Worth the visit”
Traditional Kyoto restaurant, served by an extremely polite kimono dressed waitress, who explained all the dishes to us (in English) thoroughly. She also performed a tea making ceremony and once we were finished she walked us down to the lobby and pointed us in the direction for our walk home. We ha...d our own private room with a view overlooking the night lights of Tokyo (from 48th floor). It was a really nice experience, however the food was a little mature for our undeveloped tastebuds (abalone, eel, shark fin, liver etc). The waitress picked up on this quite early and tried to adjust the menu accordingly. Minokichi is worth a try for the experience but if we had our time again we would have chosen the cheapest set menu.

“Quite an experience!”
I wanted a traditional japanese dinner and we had it all: the setting, the food, the service and the tea ceremony at the end. The setting was like in the movies: a seclusive room, with tatamis and japanese table seating . The food was incredible: refined, diverse and so different. The best part of ...it was having the young Yuri as our attendant: she told us every story about each meal and vegetable, she kindly answered our hundred of questions about her life as a Japanese young woman, and she even escorted us to the entrance of the building. An extraordinary lady and an exceptional restaurant
