Zipangu is stylish restaurant that belongs to Nadaman, one of the most revered traditional Japanese restaurants in the country. Their approach is to combine Western influences with Nadaman's cuisine to create contemporary Japanese food that pairs with wine.
By far, one of the best places I have eaten since i've been in Tokyo. They have two different styles of gyoza, pan-fried and boiled. Although, they have regular and garlic & leek to choose from in both categories. For pan-fied, I stick with the original. Though, for the boiled, I go with the garlic & leek. Both are excellent choices. The key is to mix up your dipping sauce. They have hot pepper oi... Read More
Shop is located in a side street close to Harajuku station, you should follow the delicious smell of grilled Gyoza.
You have to consider 10-15 min. waiting time, but it's value for money. For me the best Gyoza shop in Tokyo. The shop atmosphere very unique and to sit and watch the people enjoying snacks & conversation really nice.
This is a great place for dumplings and small appitizers, but not for lunch.
I'm a bit biased since I've had much better dumplings in China, but for what it was, Gyoza Rou was pretty decent. The menu gives you a choice of two styles of dumplings, one is pan-fried and one is boiled. Both are very good, but the portions are FREAKING tiny - not a place to fill up. I would need at least 3 orders t... Read More
A few years ago, this place didn't have such ridiculously bad line-ups. Then some foreigners 'discovered' the place and it was mentioned in a bunch of guide books and now getting a few delicious gyoza without a long wait is darned near impossible. The wait might be worth it if you haven't had gyoza before and want to try it, but there are plenty of mom and pop ramen places with equally good gyoz... Read More
This hole in the wall Gyoza restaurant can be found in Omotesando, amidst all kinds of shopping and other tourist activities. Don't be discouraged by the look of the place because the gyoza here is INCREDIBLE. There is usually a line so get there early and expect to wait for a little while. The wait is definitely worth the delicious food. This is a great casual lunch-time place while you're ou... Read More
This really is a great spot in Harajuku. It wasn't that crowded when I went a little before lunch time on Friday as I beat the rush. I ordered moyashi (bean sprouts), rice, and gyouza and it was a fabulous meal for such a low cost. The restaurant is definitely very foreigner friendly with the English menu and even when I was there, there were many other foreigners as well. This secret has been... Read More

My first visit here was on a hot summer day. I was exausted and wanted to have a drink to ease my thirst. Then, my girlfriend took me to this restaurant and saw a long waiting line. I've always thought that a restaurant with a waiting line is an outstanding place, and it was true. After 15 minutes of waiting, we were guided to counter seats. On the way to our seats, gyoza and beer caught my e... Read More
Any place that has the menu painted on the wall in red and yellow paint has to be worth a second look. Gyoza rou is one of those places. There's a large horseshoe shaped counter that dominates the restaurant. If you sit there, you can watch the gyoza chefs work their magic. And trust me, it is magic. Gyoza itself is one of those foods that's its own kind of heaven to eat. This restaurant does it w... Read More
