Japanese Curry in Tokyo

Hi all...

I'm putting together my list for my next trip in December. I was planning on hitting Tokyo Curry Lab for Japanese Curry. Are there any other places that trump TCL or ones that you think are worth checking out?

    I though Manten wasn't anything to write home about. I like the curry at These in Nishi Azabu.

      BTW, the Club of Tokyo Famous Diners in Yurakucho, where you can try curries from five famous shops at the same time and compare, now has a branch in Akihabara: http://bento.com/rev/3670.html

      It might be a good starting point for a curry novice.

        Here is a link to a fairly long curry thread that started in December 2009.

          Japanese Curry base his importance on sauce, big plate of sauce usually with few meat. The Curry Lab, there is nothing exceptional, they have a choice of plate with a variety of sauce to combine.
          A Hotel Curry will be as better... and they might add wine as well to mild the spices. My favorite is in Okachimachi-Yushima (near ueno) is a counter style http://r.tabelog.com/tokyo/A1311/A131... The shop is some kind of japanese-indian style : quality of sauce, spices, few meat, and rice...
