See the link below for more information.

Bar & Restaurant Ninja Castle

This a fun ninja-themed restaurant! The ninja waiters sometimes do special tricks while serving you so it's quite entertaining. Yes, it's gimmicky but the food is actually excellent and not overpriced.

You can enjoy traditional Japanese foods such as sushi, sashimi, and high-grade Japanese wagyu beef cooked teppan-style at your table (highly recommended!). Full courses start from ¥2,980.

Misojyu's dishes are simple (various miso soups and onigiri) but unbelievably tasty! It's Japanese home cooking taken to the next level. If you're in Asakusa and searching for a delicious, cheap, and healthy meal, you've got to check out Misojyu.

The miso soups are the focus of the meal. They're filled with high-quality fresh vegetables and meat (except for the vegan option) and stand on their own as beautiful works of soup art that are absolutely delicious.

The onigiri are also given an extra touch that elevates them to the next level. You'll definitely be able to tell the difference between these and the onigiri that can be purchased at the conbini. Misojyu's are fresh and loaded with top-quality ingredients including organic dried tea leaves, pickled plum, salmon, spicy tuna, and more.

Denkiya Hall (デンキヤホール)

This is a family-run restaurant established over 100 years ago. The interior is full of retro decorations which creates an amazing quaint atmosphere.

The menu is based on the owner's grandfather's recipes. They have a variety of Japanese-style comfort foods. If you don't know what to get, try their signature menu item, the "Omumaki", which are stir-fried noodles wrapped in egg. They also have good desserts so it's a nice place to just enjoy sweets and coffee too.

Asakusa Chakoru (浅草 ちゃこーる)

Chakoru is a yakitori (skewered chicken grilled over charcoal) restaurant. The owner-chef is so particular about the ingredients he uses and the way he grills, which translates into some amazingly scrumptious yakitori.

What's more, they have some unique yakitori kinds you can't find at other restaurants. The place is famous for using various kinds of French ingredients such as quail and game meat. You can experience first hand here the globalization of Japanese yakitori culture!

Nakasei (中清)

Established in 1870, Nakasei has been serving delicious tempura for almost 150 years! Their must-try food is called the Raijin-age, which is a shrimp and scallop king of tempura available at ¥3,000. It is usually full and people line up to try their Raijin-age, so be sure to be there early!

Sakurada (櫻田)

Sakurada is an Edo (old Tokyo) style restaurant, offering traditional Edo dishes and old-fashioned atmosphere which makes you feel as if you've travelled back to the past.

Just like it was done during the Edo era, you cook the food on a charcoal grill at your table. They also try to be kind to the environment, as Edo people were, by using organic vegetables, local seafood and meat. You can taste the freshness and the natural flavors are enhanced by the grilling.

R Restaurant & Bar

R Restaurant & Bar is located on the 13th floor of the Gate Hotel Kaminarimon and offers a spectacular view of the Sky Tree.

This is a place you might want to go for their delicious ¥2,500 breakfasts they offer from 6:30-10 AM. You can order a main dish and also their vegetable buffet.

Asakusa Yakatabune Amitei (浅草屋形船 あみ貞)

Yakatabune (literally "houseboat") is a worthwhile attraction in Asakusa. It is a kind of traditional river cruise, in a roofed boat, during which a traditional Japanese feast is served to you.

Amitei travels on the Sumida river and passes along Odaiba and Tokyo Sky Tree. The cruise is particularly recommended during sakura season (cherry blossoms), because many sakura trees line the river.

The experience is worth it as much for the amazing view than it is for tasting quality Japanese dishes like fresh sushi and tempura. They use selected seasonal ingredients so you can enjoy the seasonality in their Japanese cuisine.
The traditional Japanese-style decor makes yakatabune dining even more special. Yakatabune cruises and dinners require a reservation beforehand.
