What's the deal with Pocket Concierge's "exclusive courses"?

strang | Jan 17, 201805:59 PM

I was looking to book lunch through Pocket Concierge and I noticed the prices for their "exclusive course" or whatever are often much higher than what's listed on Tabelog. For example, Sushi Satake on Pocket Concierge is ~12,000yen for the "Omakase Lunch Course" but Tabelog has the lunch price at around 5,000yen.

Obviously the Pocket Concierge fee is included and that's fine, but are the courses a bad value? Do you get something much different from a regular customer? Is it just a foreigner tax?
