Chen Kashisai Yurakucho Reviews

I used to work in the next-door building and would come here for lunch quite often. It gets quite a lot of customers during lunch, even if not as much as before. Today, you might still have to wait in line sometimes during lunch.
They have one of the best Sichuan food around, though the karaage and salad set that come with lunch sets are very very dubious. I suggest sticking to Sichuan Toushoumen or Tantanmen. You can choose the spiciness level of your noodles, but just be careful as this place’s criteria is definitely spicier than the usual Japanese palette.
This time, I got a summer-only menu, Cold Tantanmen and it was absolutely great!

Tables are quite close to each other so if you sit as a group you might find it a bit crowded and during busy times, you might even get asked to sit on different tables.


By far the best Sichuan food in Tokyo. I absolutely enjoyed the Mapo tofu. The all-you-can-eat dumplings was a bonus 😜 I am going back for sure 😎
Must try guys 🥢
