Yakiniku Toraji in Shinjuku, Tokyo

Yakiniku Toraji in Shinjuku is right in the heart of Kabukicho. Kabukicho is an area known for being filled with bars, restaurants, cinemas, game arcades, you name it! However, upon entering the restaurant itself, you'll feel as though you have entered another area altogether. With its wide corridor and private rooms, Yakiniku Toraji is the perfect place to escape Tokyo's whirlwind for a moment.
Toraji is a very well reviewed restaurant because of the quality of its ingredients and its modern interior. What is more, it's quite reasonably priced!


The courses start at ¥3,000. The basic set comes with beef tongue, Kalbi ribs, as well as other meat dishes and some appetizers. If you don't know what to get, this is a good place to start.

The most extensive set is ¥6,800 per person and is a very generous course. It comes with assorted appetizers, such as kimchi, many prime beef cuts, fried rice and dessert with coffee. If you brought an appetite and would like to sample the restaurant's best dishes, this is the one to get.

There are other courses available for ¥4,800 or ¥5,800 too.
You can also order a la carte some of their signature dishes, such as Kalbi boneless ribs. Another very popular dish in Japan is beef tongue.

There's a lot more to try as well! How about some beef sushi or sashimi or some Korean dishes, such as hot stone bowls (bibimbap or spicy tofu chige soup for example).
Not only is yakiniku delicious, but it is also a very fun group activity! You can order tons of different dishes and try a bit of everything, but mostly it is a very convivial way to eat as people take turns to grill the meat over the charcoal. The smell will entice your senses and open up your appetite. Enjoy!


Yakiniku Toraji is a must-try restaurant in Shinjuku both for its price/quality ratio and because of its convenient location. However, if Shinjuku is a little out of the way for you, you can try one of their branches in Ebisu, Ginza, Marunouchi, Roppongi, etc. All of their restaurants are elegant and modern, each one having their own personal style and touch. Which one do you prefer?
