Roppongi Robataya

What is “Robatayaki”?

Robatayaki’s origin is said to lead back to
Sendai city in Miyagi prefecture, the largest city
in the Tohoku region of Japan. Robatayaki is
the original Japanese traditional barbecue, grilled and served directly in front of customers, similar to the style of sushi.
The chefs sit on a deck surrounded
by ingredients on display. The atmosphere is
a recreation of a traditional farmhouse and
one is seated around the open hearth,
counter seats.
To order, just get the chef’s attention and point to what you want him to scoop up your choice
on a huge wooden paddle and cook it
right before your eyes and is served back
to you on the same paddle.
It is very lively setting and exciting
once in a lifetime experience to come in contact with the Japanese staff as well as
meeting others enjoying the evening.
