Look for the big metal fish above the door
'Taiko Chaya' is located just one minute from the C4 Exit of JR Bakurocho Station. The shop is easy to spot by the large metal fish above the doorway.

Piles of Fresh Sashimi Await!

Look at the giant bowls of sashimi piled high with mountains of fresh fish! The restaurant serves at least 10 kinds of sashimi for the all-you-can-eat buffet and the types of fish change day by day.

The all-you-can-eat buffet is limited to 50 minutes, and an extra charge of ¥500 is added if there are any leftovers, so be sure to eat everything!
Some of the sashimi items on the buffet include:
Taiko_Chaya_fish_on_ice
This mountain of tuna, fresh from Toyosu Fish Market.
Taiko_chaya_toronegi
This Negi toro (fatty tuna with green onions).
taiko_chaya_salmon
This fatty salmon.
Taiko_Chaya_scallops
Boiled scallops.
Taiko_Chaya_octopus
Even octopus sashimi!

Time to Eat!

The freshness of the fish, caught the same day and purchased at Tokyo's Toyosu Market, is awesome!
Taiko_chaya_chopsticks
It has the slight firmness and texture that you expect in super fresh fish, and is very satisfying to eat! It's hard to believe that it's unlimited!
In addition to the sashimi, the restaurant also offers a buffet of other cooked items, side dishes, and even dessert. Customers are guaranteed to leave happy, with a full stomach!

Eating at Taiko Chaya

Taiko_chaya_interior_2
Taiko Chaya starts serving the lunch buffet at 11:30 am. The restaurant hands out tickets to people who wait in line with a time that they can go inside. If you decide to go on the same day, waiting is inevitable, and sometimes you might not be able to get in at all.

However, if you make a reservation over the phone, groups of 3 or more people can get in without having to wait in line. Reserving will cost an extra ¥200 per person, but it is probably worth it to avoid waiting! Check the link below to get help reserving if you don't speak Japanese.
