These restaurants are not only unbelievably cheap but they also have a reputation for outstanding quality. One of them was even awarded a Michelin star with menu items at just ¥500!

Feel free to follow favy!

Jimbocho Shokuniku Center - Yakiniku In Jimbocho

This is a totally unpretentious yakiniku restaurant that serves really good quality meat at an unbeatable price. It has this unbelievable all-you-can-eat lunch option that is just ¥950. The catch, if you will, is that you only have 45 minutes to eat, but still, this is a steal! Especially considering that all the meat used is domestic.

The lunchtime special is the claim to fame of the restaurant but if you go there for dinner, it shouldn't cost you much more than ¥3,000 even if you eat plenty.

Tachigui Sushi Nemuro Hanamaru - Standing Sushi Bar In Ginza

Hard to believe that you can find cheap sushi of this quality in fancy Ginza, one of the most expensive districts of Tokyo. People have been raving about this resto ever since it has opened in the spring of 2016. It's the sister branch of the also famous Kaiten Nemuro Hanamaru. That name is synonymous with unbeatable quality for the price. There are 55 types of sushi you can order, ranging in price from ¥100 to ¥330.

Oniyanma - Udon In Gotenda

This is an iconic udon shop in Gotenda. The place is famous for their perfect tempura toppings and their homemade chewy noodles. Because it is really delicious and that it costs less than ¥500 to eat there so there are often lines that form in front of the restaurant. It's well-worth the wait!

Rinrin - Ramen In Adachi-ku

Rinrin is famous for its ¥330 ramen. In their ramen, you'll find the basic ingredients: green onions, chashu pork and bamboo shoots. The soup is light and has lots of umami that comes from the chicken and pork that were boiled to make it. It's a shoyu ramen, so a soy sauce is used to add even more deep flavor.

Tim Ho Wan is a dim sum gourmet restaurant originally from Hong Kong, which is famous for being the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world. When you visit, you need to try these famous menu items which are only about ¥500 per serving!
