Zauo fishing restaurant is definitely one to put on your Tokyo Bucket List. Catch your food, tell them how you want it prepared then eat! It`s a spot the entire family will enjoy.
We had an early dinner with friends at the Meguro location. We walked in and saw a long fish pool with elementary school aged kids fishing for their meal. We passed the kitchen and walked towards the back only to see another long pool filled with fish! The process is to grab a pole and a net, catch a fish, flag down the staff, tell them your table number and how you want your fish to be prepared; Sashimi, Sushi, Grilled/Boiled or Tempura (deep fried), wait to be served then eat! You can continue to fish while they prepare your first catch. No catch and release! They also give you the option to cook the fish in two ways (e.g. half sashimi – half grilled). If you`re unable to catch a fish you can order one off the menu. Note the price is lower if you catch your own fish. Side dishes are also available on their English menu. Everyone loved it!
If you are looking for quintessential “Japan” eating experiences to take the family or visitors to try some of our other favorites; Banzai-yu, Pokemon Cafe, Tonkatsu Maisen, Ukai, and Kikkoman Live Kitchen.
