About the restaurant
Toraji is a “yakiniku” style BBQ restaurant.

Since our first shop has been established in 1995 in Tokyo, Ebisu area, we came a long way.

Starting with “namuru” and “kimchi” Korean style steamed and pickeled vegetables, continuing with tongue, ribs and/or outside skirt, finishing with cold noodles or “pibimpab” Korean style mixed rice bowl. We are commited to provide you the “yakiniku” you want for the days you feel like having a “yakiniku”.

We as pros won`t do any compromise in terms of ingredients, taste or service, Toraji will continue to promote the right way the yakiniku culture, bringing taste, happiness and health to our customers.

Everything was great! The lobster pasta is almost a meal in itself. Took 1/2 of it home. And the Branzino with eghplant purée was also excellent-cleaned the plate. For dessert I had the Pana cota and was amazed-not too sweet . Can’t wait to return.

Principe was a great experience. We were welcomed warmly, and seated at a great table downstairs. The server took drink and appetizer orders quickly while we scanned the menu. We had a party of 6 so we shared - tuna crudo, scallops, then salads and finally mains. The chicken was the overall favorite, but the branzino and duck were also fantastic! Then dessert -- decadent and delicious.

Wonderful total experience with lovely jazz as a topper. Loved the menu including Alsatian tart, duck, pate, even the burger and fries were delicious. Great sauces and the salted chocolate tart was a chocolate lovers dream. Servers were welcoming and knowledgeable and prices were reasonable
