Help! In tokyo and want late night good restaurant.
I am in Tokyo in order to fight in Sengoku III. We fight Sunday and won't get done until 11 pm or so. I am looking for a restaurant to take our group of 6 to afterwards. We are in Shinjuku but don't mind traveling 30 minutes or so if the food is worth it. I really like sushi and would most prefer that. I especially love sushi buffets. Otherwise, I am open to tepenyaki or tempura or traditional japanese food. I prefer a more upsclae place but as I said, sushi buffet is most important.
Please any help would be appreciated!
Sunday nights are early nights in Tokyo, and unfortunately I doubt that you'll find a late-night sushi buffet then. I think Gompachi (03-5771-0170) in Nishi-Azabu might be your best bet - they have a variety of good-quality Japanese food (including sushi), a nice, fun interior, and English-language menus and service. And probably more atmosphere than most other places at that hour on a Sunday. And they're open to 5am. (http://bento.com/rev/1735.html )
If you want sushi, sushi and nothing but sushi, then try the sushi place on Roppongi crossing, which is open until 5 a.m. (pretty sure it's open on Sundays as well). I am not a fan of that part of Roppongi, and would not normally recommend it, but for sushi, at that time of day, beggars probably can't be choosers.
