“Fun, cheap eats in Asakusa. Ordering is in English with pictures on an electronic tablet.”
LOCATED ON THE 5TH FLOOR On our second night in Asakusa, we found this restaurant about an 8 minute walk from our hotel (Richmond Hotel Asakusa) and decided to give it a whirl. The restaurant is on the 5th floor and looks like nothing from the outside. There are stairs or an elevator and you'll be g...reeted by a glass door to the restaurant. EASY ORDERING ON A TABLET IN ENGLISH WITH PICTURES The decor is cozy but simple wood with white lampshades. It's compact, like many Japanese restaurants, but has a lively yet cozy vibe. We were sat in the window at a 2-person table. Ordering is easy on an electronic tablet on the table which is in English and has pictures -- great! We enjoyed a daikon salad, 4 yakatori sticks, a warm ginger drink (delicious!) and a beer. The staff were friendly and although they spoke minimal English, we got by. In order to pay, take the plastic number up to the front register. CHEAP FUN EATS! We were in Japan for 18 days and for some reason, this restaurant really stood out in my mind -- maybe because we'd just arrived and I was so proud of ourselves for braving it and eating in a Japanese restaurant. It was cheap and fun and easy to order! If you found this review useful or informational in any way, please click the THANK button.

“Try yakitori here”
Torikizoku is a good place to try different types of yakitori chicken skewers. The menu has pictures and everything here has the same price (280 Yen). So it is easy to see what they have and you cannot order something very expensive by mistake. Good value if you want some drinks and Japanese style p...ub food.
