The ultimate duck tasting menu. Chef Jin Toyoda has an outstanding vision and innovative method of cooking using playful flavour combinations that are all brought together through flawless execution. Every bite was meticulously designed and crafted to perfection.

If you are lucky enough to attend one of seven seats in the intimate chefs counter - congratulations, you are in for a treat! Highly recommend the sake and wine combo pairing as the choices by the sommelier are sublime.

At the next opportunity, we will be sure to seize the chance to dine here again.

Duck and Noods 💯

Kanjo is a restaurant that I learned about in my Instagram (!?!) feed and features a unique combination of duck and soba noodles

Chef Toyoda’s background is from a restaurant family and his innovative dishes feature homages to his grandfather’s sushi mastery, his father’s French cooking and his brother’s soba restaurant

I expected a heavily duck and noodle-centric meal but the artfully paced experience includes surprises like hairy crab chawamushi, generous uni over soba, and mapo tofu (with duck meat) over rice

As the only foreigners in the intimate 7-seat restaurant, we marveled at our fellow Japanese diners extensive wine and alcohol pairings (on a weeknight!) and listened intently about the Japanese steel used to sear all the duck meats that is the highlight of the meal (that meatball and duck breast are sublime!) Chef Toyoda’s English proficiency and friendly demeanor adds to the experience

A one-of-kind meal in a one-of-a-kind city: Tokyo

Simply spectacular.

My wife and I secured a reservation (there are only six seats, all at the counter) and visited Kanjo in August '23.

This might have been our single favorite meal we had in Japan. From watching the chef work (the entire operation is a well-oiled machine) to the pacing of the meal, the entire dining experience is impressive.

The highlight, though, is the food. Every dish was beautifully prepared and the flavors are jaw-dropping.

If you're looking for an absolutely incredible and memorable dining experience in Tokyo, you can't do better than Kanjo!
