All-You-Can-Eat Sashimi For... ¥1,300?? Amazing Lunch at 'Taiko Chaya'


Have you heard of 'Taiko Chaya?' It's an izakaya in Tokyo's Asakusa Bashi that is so popular that there's a ticket system for getting in to enjoy the all-you-can-eat sashimi lunch! It's a unique lunch experience that is worth trying, especially if you are a sashimi lover!

Feel free to follow favy!

50 Minute, ¥1,300 Sashimi 'Tabehodai' (All-You-Can-Eat)

Look for the big metal fish above the door
'Taiko Chaya' is located just one minute from the C4 Exit of JR Bakurocho Station. The shop is easy to spot by the large metal fish above the doorway.

Piles of Fresh Sashimi Await!

Look at the giant bowls of sashimi piled high with mountains of fresh fish! The restaurant serves at least 10 kinds of sashimi for the all-you-can-eat buffet and the types of fish change day by day.

The all-you-can-eat buffet is limited to 50 minutes, and an extra charge of ¥500 is added if there are any leftovers, so be sure to eat everything!
Some of the sashimi items on the buffet include:
This mountain of tuna, fresh from Toyosu Fish Market.
This Negi toro (fatty tuna with green onions).
This fatty salmon.
Boiled scallops.
Even octopus sashimi!

Time to Eat!

The freshness of the fish, caught the same day and purchased at Tokyo's Toyosu Market, is awesome!
It has the slight firmness and texture that you expect in super fresh fish, and is very satisfying to eat! It's hard to believe that it's unlimited!
In addition to the sashimi, the restaurant also offers a buffet of other cooked items, side dishes, and even dessert. Customers are guaranteed to leave happy, with a full stomach!

Eating at Taiko Chaya

Taiko Chaya starts serving the lunch buffet at 11:30 am. The restaurant hands out tickets to people who wait in line with a time that they can go inside. If you decide to go on the same day, waiting is inevitable, and sometimes you might not be able to get in at all.

However, if you make a reservation over the phone, groups of 3 or more people can get in without having to wait in line. Reserving will cost an extra ¥200 per person, but it is probably worth it to avoid waiting! Check the link below to get help reserving if you don't speak Japanese.
I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
