“Great selection of food and very friendly service”
There isn't a large selection of good restaurants in Shibuya, but Honoji is fantastic. Luckily, my Tokyo friends frequent this izakaya and knew how good it is, and they took me there for dinner. We had a comfortable table in a quiet corner, where we could look out at the rain outside and enjoy bein...g in out of it. On the walls, a ton of the cool wooden tags you'll find in izakay and other traditional Japanese restaurants - offering a great variety of dishes (some of which I hadn't seen in years - like Ham Katsu). Every dish we ordered was delicious. So was the wine and shochu. Our server was great. He was a friendly, young guy who joked about with us and made us feel right at home. Recommended: Ask for a table near or by the window. This puts you up on a raised area and you feel like you're not "just stuck in the middle" of a restaurant.
