This a wonderful gem of a bistro in the heart of Ginza. I was worried about the cuisine being described as fusion, I think other places don’t do it well. Bistro Simba does do it well, and we felt like we were in the chef’s home, where he prepared French style food cooked with Japanese ingredients.

We chose the six course tasting, which was plenty of food without over-stuffing ourselves. I wish I could say I had a favourite dish but they were all memorably delicious. We loved the shishamo and the beautiful roasted pork, and the chestnut cream dessert. It’s all heavenly, you can’t go wrong.
They also were very accommodating of a shellfish allergy that we made note of in the reservation, which we were very grateful for. Natural wine was served by the glass at a very reasonable price.

The restaurant is cozy and buzzing with a really lovely atmosphere. Service was incredibly warm, even though my Japanese is limited and the waitstaff spoke little to limited English. The charming chef himself came to serve the first course and offered a hearty goodbye when we left.

Book in advance, you won’t regret it.

The menu at the restaurant is entirely in Japanese, if you can’t read Japanese then it would be worth the having a glance online to see what the offering is like.


Perfect place to try the combination of great French cooking techniques and the Japanese ingredients.
I’ve visited here for 8 times ~ I live in Taipei ~ never disappointed. The wine selection is also fantastic.


I'll come visit again when I finish my studies. Food was good but I wanted to communicate to the staff more. They were really friendly.
