6 Awesome Cheap Eats In Shibuya That Are Actually Really Good


Looking for something filling, cheap and delicious in Shibuya? These are restaurants that you won't be disappointed by! Many genres included including ramen and sushi.

Feel free to follow favy!

Mawashi-Zushi Katsu Seibu Shibuya Branch

This sushi restaurant is located inside the Seibu department store, which is only 1 minute away from Shibuya station. As this restaurant serves fresh fish from Tsukiji market at a very reasonable price, there is always a long line of customers.

The sushi goes around on a conveyor belt, but you can also order on your own using the tablet placed at each table. There are over 100 dishes on the menu, and even the most expensive sushi is priced at just ¥500. Talk about affordable sushi! The design of the plate tells you how much the sushi is worth so it's easy to keep track of how much the bill will add up to.


Yamaga is located a 3-minute walk from the Station on its west side. This is also a restaurant with a long history (established in 1947) so you can be sure it's good. Not so many restaurants can pass the 5 years mark in Tokyo.

What's amazing about Yamaga is that it's open 24h every single day of the year! It has a retro Showa kind of atmosphere and you can have 300 yen drinks while you eat good, cheap yakitori. It's a big restaurant spread on five floors so it's a good place to meet in larger groups. This is an overall excellent yakitori restaurant where you get your bang the buck.


Shinshuya is well known for serving quick, cheap, and delicious soba. Located a 3-minute walk from Shibuya station.

The most simple soba (noodles and soup) dish is just 290 yen. You can easily spend less than 500 yen even if you get some toppings like tempura. Although reasonably priced, the quality is still good. You won't get enough of their flavorful soba with their sweet and savoury soup.

Tiger Gyoza Hall

Tiger Gyoza Hall is a 10 minute walk from Shibuya station, not too far from the Bunkamura Museum.

This resto's specialty is gyoza, but they also have a Chinese food menu. It's cheap and delicious, and they also have a good selection of craft beer and cocktails!
A big perk of this resto is that it is smoke-free!


This is one for ramen lovers! Kiraku is one of the oldest, most well-known independent ramen joint in the city.

It serves Chuka ramen, which is a basic kind of shoyu (soy sauce) ramen. The secret of the great taste of this ramen is in its soup that has a strong taste of grilled onion. It's not too oily yet strong-flavoured. People say that the strong taste of onion gives them stamina. Noodles are on the thick side and have a slick texture. As for the chashu pork, it tastes light at first but is actually quite oily and the umami kicks in as an aftertaste. You can balance out that oiliness with some of that moyashi (bean sprouts) served in generous amount. This bowl is just ¥700. They also have excellent dumplings!

Lemon Rice TOKYO

Lemon rice is a popular dish in southern India, and this is one of the few places where you can have it in Japan. With the zesty taste of lemon coupled with cilantro, basil and sweet pepper as toppings, this lemon rice is as fresh-tasting as it can get. It also comes with a sauce with large chunks of tender chicken in it.

This is a take-out only shop but you can eat your bento in the nearby Sakuraoka Park.
