    We have got the chance to visit some of Tokyo's resturants. I can say there is a lot of good places.

    To start off with: Tokyo have some good resturants such as the Pizzeria and the Narivana New york which is modren indian. There are some resturants next them that we have not tried yet but they look good.

    Golden burger in Omoestando hills is a great place for burgers.

    Good pizza place is Da Isa in Nakamegro

    Urth cafe is open, a nice cafe in Southeren California

    There is a very nice resturant in ropponing hills tower which is located on the 52nd floor.

    If i remember more, i will share with you guys.

    Mibo - welcome to TAG and thanks for jumping right in!

    Tokyo has a lot of hidden gems and it's hard to document them all. You could spend all of your life trying Tokyo's eateries and never finish.

    There are some other foods, imported by Japan and then 'Japan'ized' for the locals. Some of that turns out really good while others fall well below expectations.

    Thanks for sharing and we look forward to future contributions.

    I would like to know some good suggestions for the shinjuku area. Anyone suggest a good place for sukiyaki?

    Nabezo in Shinjuku is popular and frequently has a line of waiting customers. Tasty and good value IMHO. It is typically referred to as a shabu-shabu/nabe place, but they have the fresh egg for the sukiyaki as well. Customers are a wide variety from salarymen to couples to groups of young people.

    The Shinjuku branches are the first ones listed near if you scroll down their webpage.

    Personally, I like Tsubohachi for Shabu-Shabu and Sukiyaki.

    http://www.tsubohachi.co.jp/

    They have a tabehodai course (all you can eat) for roughly 4,000 yen/person for something like 90 minutes?

    http://www.mo-mo-paradise.com/

    Also is a good choice, but I think the quality of meat is lesser than that of Tsubohachi. Japanese people like fatty meat, opposed to westerners who prefer more lean meat.

    Both of these shops have branches in Shinjuku. Tsubohachi is closer to the JR station and Mo-Mo Paradise is over in Kabukichou right near where there is a lot of constructions (big cranes, easy to fine) -- It's the same building with a bowling alley and game center.

    If needed, I'll put up Google maps for each of these.

    By they way, I also endorse this place as well. It is also very excellent.

    I can't remember which places have English menus, but some of them do.

    Awesome. Looks like the winner for sure. So it's all you can eat for about $20?
    I will be going there for sure. Think ordering in English will be hard?
    Thank you

    I think English will be fine; worst case just point. Depends on the staff there at that time. Since the vegetables, soup, dessert and drinks (if you get the drink bar option) are all self-serve, it is just the initial sukiyaki (and maybe drink bar) order and then ordering more meat that you'll need to actually talk to someone. The drink bar is all-you-can drink teas, softdrinks, and some juices.

    The $20 all-you-can-eat (Japanese tabe-hou-dai) is timed. The ~$20 option (1980 yen) is 90 minutes, I believe, but maybe as short at 60 minutes. I think they also have a 2 hour option that is ~$24. Sorry, my memory is failing me, it's been awhile since I was there.

    Did a search on the price. 1980yen (2079 with tax) is for 90 minutes.

    If you go to the branch near the Shinjuku station east exit, there is a coupon on-line.

    http://www.hotpepper.jp/strJ000026726/map/

    You'll see a printer icon with a blue button next to it that is labelled "クーポン&地図を印刷". Press this and then a window should pop up with your coupon. Press the blue button labelled "印刷する" to print the coupon and take it with you.

    The coupon gives you three options, you can choose only one option:
    1) Girls get 200yen off the drink bar or alcohol all-you-can-drink option
    2) If you get seated between 5-6pm on a weekday (not Saturday, Sunday or a national holiday), your table gets 10% your total bill
    3) If you get seated between 11:30am-16:00 on Saturday everyone at your table can get 300yen off the drink bar

    You should show the coupon to the person who takes your order, before you order.

    The coupon has a map on it showing where this specific branch is located.

    Hope you enjoy sukiyaki in Tokyo!
