Here's the best places for gyoza in Tokyo! Gyoza are Japanese Pan-Fried Dumplings, aka juicy little pockets of goodness that are sometimes too good to stop eating! Found all throughout Japan, they usually accompany a bowl of ramen or served along side dishes at Chinese restaurants.

Kameido Gyoza comes in at number 1 spot with its immense popularity with locals. Though a little bit outside of downtown, it's a place that should not be overlooked if you're keen on locking lips with some juicy gyoza while in Tokyo. Located in Kameido about 1 minute walk from Kameido station on the JR Sobu line.

Beware though, get there early or you might be waiting a long time, especially if its the weekend.

My advice - stick with ordering gyoza (don't worry about other sides) and pair it with an ice-cold Asahi beer!

Hoanyon is a chinese restaurant that makes the next best gyoza in Tokyo. Served slightly different than most gyoza, the chefs at Hoanyan create a crispy layer on the bottom of pan that keep the gyoza together to make a crispy crust. Located about 290m from the east exit of JR Kamata station. Open from morning til late!

There's more than just gyoza on the menu, but gyoza is the main reason to come here - so if your looking for a little bit more try the the fried rice or the mabo tofu!
