Want to Really Get to Know Some Delicious Sake? 'Nihonshu Tada' is Where You Should Go!


'Nezu Nihonshu Tada' is an izakaya that is totally focused on serving the most delicious nihonshu (sake) they can find. It's an izakaya, yet they serve course meals that are designed to pair perfectly with various sakes. The restaurant was good enough to be listed in the Michelin Guide as a Bib Gourmand Restaurant and shouldn't be missed if you're a true sake fan!

Why Go?

'Nezu Nihonshu Tada' is a unique izakaya in Toyko's Bunkyo ward, north of Ueno Park. While most izakayas serve food items a la carte, Tada serves food in courses, which are designed to be paired with sake. The owner is clearly incredibly passionate about sake and has gone to great lengths to find some of the best, most delicious sake from small, local breweries. You can order sake on your own, or ask for the chef's recommendations for each course, which is what most customers tend to do.
The food is a bit fancier than your typical izakaya fare, with locally-sourced, high-quality fish and vegetables used to create delicious bites of food that wouldn't seem out of place at a fine dining restaurant. The atmosphere, however, is much more relaxed and comfortable, making for a wonderful overall dining experience. Whether you're already a sake lover, or you're curious about just how delicious sake can be, 'Nezu Nihonshu Tada' is highly recommended!


There are three courses available, each featuring dishes that change based on seasonal ingredients. The 5-course meal is ¥6,000, the 7-course meal is ¥8,000, and the 8-course meal is ¥10,000.

Reservations / Access

Due to its popularity, it's best to make a reservation if you plan to dine at Tada. A few days in advance should be enough time, but it's better to reserve further ahead of time if possible. When reserving, request a seat at the counter so you can be up close to the action.

The restaurant is located just 2 minutes from Nezu Station, on the Tokyo Metro's Chiyoda Line. Look for the sign above.
