We stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed it . We had a nice view of the street below as we sipped a wonderful cold beer. Food was good too . I loved my pork steak . Good western and Japanese choices.

Well worth taking a breaking, extensive beer menu and diverse dining menu. The size of the dish suited me perfectly for lunch. The beef melted in my mouth. The staff were efficient and menu was available in English.

Happened to walk by Kirin City looking for a place to eat on a Saturday night. Since it was packed, I figured it would be worth trying and I was not disappointed. I heavily recommend the Japanese steak, which is grilled and cut into slices. It comes with a grilled open face onion, Japanese style fries and sauce with authentic... More

Fantastic tap beer. Creamy head with a refreshing body. Clean but a little on the pricey side. I would stop by for a couple before or after dinner.

Had lunch here, which was a set price meal and it was a good meal, good size and tasty. The service was good and the beer tasted great, but a bit pricey.....tried a couple of the different types which was great and it hit the spot at lunch time.....even purchased a glass from the bar.

The old... More

Feels like home; friendly staff and a great selection of draft beers. Not very cheap but considering the location I thought it was very affordable. Good bar feel. Can't comment on the food but it seems they offer a nice selection. Good to hang out after a day of work!

This place is sure to please those looking for a local hangout. Its always crowded and you can measure the populace in Tokyo by the crowd that participates in food and fun and this popular pub in Shinjuku. Try it...you'll enjoy the hustle and the bustle and feel like your living in Japan. Ask for Mari and tell her Jerry... More
