Review of Tofuya Ukai Restaurant in Tokyo

From what we know from Tofu in Europe, we have to admit that visiting a restaurant where the speciality is Tofu was not really high on our to-do-list in Japan. But as Tofuya Ukai Restaurant in Tokyo was recommended to us by people who appreciate good food, we thought that we should give it a try. So glad we did !

First of all, the kids are welcome at Tofuya Ukai. When you arrive, you enter a nice lobby where you are picked up by a waiter that will take you to your table, or more precisely, to your private dining room. After walking through a beautiful japanese garden, you arrive in a very traditional japanese room where the tatami is waiting for you. The huge window gives you magical views on the japanese garden with trees, plants and koi ponds.
