“Go for the local’s choice”
Read everyone’s reviews and went for the special oyako don at 1800¥ - it was a good bowl of oyako don but probably not worth that price. I noticed all the locals went for the regular one at 1100¥. It didn’t look that much different (and was a slightly bigger serve). On hindsight, I would have just g...one for the regular one and probably wouldn’t have noticed the difference. We went on a Monday at 12.15 lunchtime and were 2nd in the queue. Probably waited less than 10 mins. You have to order once you’re in the door before being seated, there’s no English menu and if you’re directed to sit upstairs, make sure you remove your shoes before walking up the stairs. They provide plastic bags that you place your shoes in and you bring them up with you. Tables upstairs are on tatami - seated on floors. I would recommend just to say you’ve tried a Michelin oyako don, but it’s not something I’d go back again for.

“The best chicken bowl!!!! ”
Nothing beats this hearty bowl of chicken+egg with rice!!! If u have difficulties reading Japanese, be sure to recognize this word “親子丼”, it’s referring to the chicken+egg with rice. “特上” means special/deluxe. I’ve ordered one of the limited 20 bowls of “特上親子丼”, for which they use the most tender pa...rts of the chicken. Highly recommended!!!!

“Popular lunch spot”
No English menu so do your research before you go. Most website reviews recommended the Oyakodon. Some basic English spoken but learn some basic Japanese phrases to help you out. Lunchtime reservation wasn't required but it was very busy with customers constantly coming and going. Great experien...ce and a filling bowl of food.

“Oyakodon was really special”
This place pretty much only serves oyakodon which is a dish with chicken, egg and rice. What makes it special is that the rice has an amazing texture and combined with their perfectly cooked egg and tasty tasty chicken it was a very special combination. There is no English menu and sometimes they’...re not very good at explaining the menu so I accidentally ordered the oyakodon with the liver and I don’t particularly like liver. Attached is a pic of the menu. The left side of the red text is their special menu which they do only 20 bowls a day. If you go two left from the red text you’ll get the liver so avoid if you don’t like liver. Point to the black text immediately left of the red text.

“Must Try Oyakodon!”
I have been to the "other" famous oyakodon shop in Tokyo, BUT I honestly prefer Toritsune. I tried the cheapest bowl at 1000 yen, so I can really judge if it's worth the fuss at Michelin. IMHO, their oyakodon is very good. Foreigners/people who can't speak Japanese might feel a bit uncomfortable, be...cause this is a small restaurant and the staff does not speak English, but trust me, they serve really good food. The restaurant is really small that you can see how/where your food is being cooked. It is really a must try if you love chicken and eggs..!
