I was led here as my local host wanted to try a place advertising itself as having the "best fish and chips in Tokyo". At the bar I asked for Cod Tempura with potato and was met with a puzzled look from the waitress, so...More

The staff at hobgoblin were very friendly and helpful and there was a nice atmosphere in the pub. The 'pints' were not British sized pints and the food was good but not anything special, a big let down was that my boyfriend's food came out...More

The atmosphere wasn't bad, but the kitchen smelt like vomit. Definitely wouldn't recommend eating there.

I was stuck for somewhere to eat dinner and the reviews of this place said they had quite a few vegetarian options so I headed over. It was ok when I arrived, quite empty, the only people there were also foreigners. I found out they...More

This is supposed to be a British pub. I ordered a British beer during the Great British Beer Festival. Why is it served in a US pint glass? 20% smaller for the same price as a proper pint in other British pubs in Tokyo. Left...More

Hobgoblin as a chain is a Tokyo staple, with the same layout, Brit pub vibe and menu at most venues; I have come to this place for over a decade and while renown for poor service, it was always in the good humor of modest...More

They have vegan/vegetarian food and they are clearly marked on the menu so it's very helpful for vegans. Except to be said to be fxxxed. Some customers and the clerk were talking loudly and once said "Fxxx THE VEGANS!!". I wasn't listening their conversation before...More

Delighted to find this pub close to the hotel to watch F1 race then onto NRL Grand final. Nothing special but beer was cold and service friendly and lunch hearty. All good until wanting to pay, original staff had gone and manager was really rude....More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
