Ishikawa Restaurant Tokyo

Michelin Three Stars: Ishikawa 神楽坂 石かわ

Ishikawa is a small, traditional restaurant serving traditional Japanese kaiseki cuisine, located in the restaurant-rich Kagurazaka area of Tokyo. Ishikawa is open in the evenings only.

Ishikawa is a very unprepossessing presence from the street, and can be a little difficult to find. The entrance is reminiscent of a Kyoto ryotei.

Ishikawa has four private dining rooms and a counter that seats seven. Ishikawa's size means that bookings must usually be made weeks in advance.

The food and service is excellent, else Ishikawa wouldn't have gotten 3 stars, but Ishikawa is also very expensive, throwing some doubt on the wisdom of spending that much when other restaurants with equally good food offer the Japanese kaiseki cuisine dining experience for less.

Ishikawa has an extensive wine and sake menu.

As with all three-star restaurants, book with Ishikawa early. If possible, make a reservation through your hotel.
