Themed or wacky restaurants in Tokyo

I think within my 4 days in Tokyo I'd like to bring my NYC friends to try at least 1 themed or wacky restaurant in Tokyo. Maybe even a getemono bar/restaurant if people are brave enough. I've searched here but there's really not all that much info. I've found some links online but I'd like some first hand info on whether it's worth it. So my criteria is:

1) Has to be in Tokyo (we are staying in Shinjuku so the closer the better since it might not be easy to convince them to go).

2) Not too pricey (say JPY5000/person or under)

3) Should have good food/drink

4) Would be a plus if they are open for lunch/afternoon tea (since we can still experience it but for a cheaper price)

Any good suggestions?
