Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Incredibly dirty and grimy. Staff were really rude and intentionally ignored customers, let others cut the queue. Didn’t see any locals there and it’s obvious why. Service and food left much to be desired. Please don’t waste your time at this tourist trap.

Place is famous for gyoza and this is their only dish, but they are delicious and cheap. They go great with fresh beer when weather is hot. Always some queue to be expected but they serve generally fast

Our favorite were the steamed dumpling, the dumpling wrapper was so soft and fluffy, each dumpling was nice and light I felt like I could’ve eaten 2 dozen of them by myself. Actually the name is steamed dumpling but it’s actually just boiled. The shiso...gyoza is interesting, not bad but it’s something I would just try once. The filling of the dumpling I think is chicken and cabbage, it’s very light in flavor. Overall it was a very quick and casual spot that makes solid gyoza and even better boiled dumplings.More

What to know in advance: the gyoza are pre-prepared, kept in the refrigerator and then made. Is that bad? No of course not. The gyoza were delicious, served fast, and the partially Indian staff is friendly. We liked it so much: we even ordered a...second set of gyoza. The (open) kitchen is un-Japanese greasy, but let that not ruin your experience. There can be a queue of waiting customers outside, Ps: we slightly preferred the garlic gyoza over the normal ones: both are good but in our opinion the garlic ones were even more rounded (taste-wise)More

Fantastically simple and effective - Ramsay would approve I imagine. Straightforward menu with either grilled or boiled gyoza. Delicious cucumber as well. Service was pretty good and the vibe in the place was nice and chilled and laid-back. We got there early so almost no...queue, but when we left there was a decent 25-person queue. Amazing gyoza, for really decent price.More

We got here around 12 on a Wednesday but didn’t have any trouble getting in (maybe 5 min wait). We did see a long line as we were leaving around 1, so I’d suggest going a little earlier. The gyoza is great. Steaming hot and...delicious. Our favorite were the garlic pan fried ones. The sides are also surprisingly good despite their simplicity - we tried the cucumber with miso and liked it. Overall, great lunch choice. Our bill was $12 total!More

Fried dumplings, rice, cucumber with sesame dressing and 2 beers. Under £20! Super tasty grub at this shabby backstreet place. You might have to queue to get in but well worth it. Much more authentic than many other places in Shibuya.

Fried gyoza were really good - crispy but not dry on one side and perfectly steamed and silky smooth on the other side. Cabbage side was sweetly picked and complimented well. Cabbage came well before the gyoza and had to ask for dipping saucer but...would definitely recommend.More

We visit this small gyoza place every time we are in Tokyo and love it. The gyoza are always terrific and even though it is mostly tourists there it is a fun lively spot to go for lunch. We wouldn't miss it when we visit...the city! Always great food.More

I ate the best gyoza ever: both the steamed and grilled ones. I loved the possibility to chose gyoza without garlic. The lunch is definitely worth the wait outside (which testify the success of this place). Value for money is really good.

Amazing gyoza at really affordable prices. ¥290 for 6 pieces of delicious gyoza. The restaurant also have a place to hang your jacket if it gets too warm inside. Waiting time to get a table was relatively fast (depending on how fast their customers finish...their meal). A must try if you're around Harajuku area.More

There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

I went at 5:30-ish in the early evening, and I got a table immediately. Avoid lunch and dinner time. The tables turn pretty fast.

I doubt it. It’s a very small place, and bringing pets in might compromise the food and health safety regulations as the kitchen is open.
