Akasaka

Tokyo's hotels are known for their lunch buffets, but few are quite so luxurious as 'The Sky,' located inside central Tokyo's Hotel New Otani. Just what does ¥7,865 yen get you access to? Read on to find out.

One of Tokyo's Fanciest Lunch Buffets - In the Sky!

On the 17th floor of Tokyo's classy 'Hotel New Otani'in central Tokyo is a restaurant called 'The Sky' that features a fabulous lunch buffet with a spectacular view of the city. It's a bit pricy to be sure but is worth it for those looking for a delicious meal of all-you-can-eat sushi, tempura, steak, roast beef, baked goods, Chinese dishes, desserts, and more!

We went to try it out for ourselves.

A Look Inside the Fancy Buffet

The interior of 'The Sky' is modern and bright, with a large kitchen filled with very professional-looking chefs. The buffet counter is filled with dish after dish of mouth-watering food that makes it difficult to decide where to start. Instead of going all-in on any one dish, I assembled a tray of small portions of many different foods.

Whereas the sushi or tempura at a typical buffet might be suspect, everything here is of a much higher quality. The sushi is made with quality neta (toppings) and good rice, and the tempura is crisp and lovely.

Unbeatable View

The view from the tall windows is magical. It adds a lot of value to the whole experience and makes you feel a bit better about spending nearly ¥8,000 at lunch.

The meat dishes are another of the biggest selling points of this buffet. The steaks are Japanese beef, and there's even sukiyaki made with kuroge wagyu!

You might be tempted to eat nothing but sushi, but that would be a shame, as there are so many other tasty dishes to be had here. One such dish is the hotel's special juicy, tender roast beef which is cooked at a low temperature. Make sure that you give it a try if you go.

The buffet also includes a Chinese cuisine section, which features several classic dishes such as mabo tofu and steamed dumplings. Each of these dishes is quite tasty and worth exploring.

If you Still Have Room...

If you still have room after trying all of the main dishes (unlikely), there's also a section of baked goods and desserts! Try a slice of matcha cake or go for a chocolate croissant. There's enough selection here to please everyone for sure!

I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
