I am going to be in Tokyo this weekend and looking for a place for a Japanese dinner on Sunday with a budget of up to JPY20,000 per person. I know there was a previous thread on what is open on Sundays. The focus there was on Michelin star restaurants. Don't get me wrong, I would not (and have not in the past) turn/ed my nose up at a Michelin star dinner. But my own experience, particularly in London, is that the Michelin guide does not always point to the best meals.
Does anyone have Tokyo restaurants for Japanese food that you think are worth a detour and missed by the Guide? It's a birthday dinner so something more than quick meal would be good.
