    I have a lunch date coming soon with my one of my ex (married so has constraints i.e. lunch date). It's been a long time we have not met and I want to impress her nicely. Any recommendations ? Budget from 5-10k per person.

    Thanks !

    Pretty wide open question...

    Any idea of a location and food style you looking for?

    Up to 10k per person should get you something nice.

    If you donĀ“t give an intended location, it is pretty pointless to give advice.... surely you are not asking for a list of restaurants all over Japan?

    Not sure on prices but here are a few I have been too...

    Beacon in Omotesando (near to Shibuya). Only been for dinner.

    Ivy Place in Daikenyama (in the same general area). Had lunch here and was very good.

    Both can be found easily on Google and have English website info including menus.

    And by Daikenyama in the same general area I meant to your reference to Meguro, Ebisu and Shibuya.

    It will be better to choose by destination,

    at Ginza you can go to Nipponbashi Yoshicho, price from 1000yens to 2000yens

    at Shibuya, go for yakiniku at Gyubei in front of Bunkamura, the lunch sets are very impressive good value.

    at Iidabashi, you can go to Akihabara and Shunjuku, the one star soba Kyorakutei have some soba at lunch around 1000-1200yens to splurge in a choice of different flagrance soup : curry (summer), or kamo&nameko (duck&mushrooms), or simple shoyu dashi. The tempura are expensive unfortunately, and the portion is too small. But, more than soba, of you like your egg to be soft smooth, I will recommend you to go for a good bowl of oyakodon(rice topped with chicken, and eggs) served with zaru cold tofu, Yakitori Abeya. Unique menu, lunch depending on the quantity is from 800yens to 1200yens. And on a parallel street, there is some Japanese sweets Makanai Pyatsubu that I like to eat frozen : the 'elegant monaka'. Flavors are matcha, kuri(chestnut), kuromame(black soybeans), the box of 6 is at 1050yens, and you can seat for a tea.
