Banrekiryukodo--info requested

Although my next confirmed visit to Tokyo won't be until the end of February, I'm looking for info on making reservations at Banrekiryukodo.

Would it be too much of a sacrifice to give up dinner and go for lunch instead? Or is dinner much more outstanding than lunch? I tend to avoid large dinners because they wreak havoc on my digestive system and sleep, but if dinner is really so much more spectacular than lunch, I try my best.

Do they have set menus at lunch, too? The dinner menus are priced at Y10, 000, Y15 000, Y20 000, Y25 000. I assume part of the price difference is based on number of courses, in addition to quality of ingredients? With regards to my stomach, I'd probably be better off ordering a mid-level course, but again, if the Y25 000 menu would blow me away more than the Y20 000 or Y15 000 courses, then I'd "suffer" through it. :-)

Generally, when do they start accepting reservations? Two months ahead? Three? Or would I be able to get a reservation a week ahead? I noticed on their website they'll be developing on online reservation system, so hopefully that will be in place by the time I make my reservation. But if I have to call, can I use English or will they have to suffer my crap Japanese?
