Now this restaurant is one of those trippy, quirky and slightly insane things that only exists in Japan. And of course I  just had to pay this restaurant a visit as soon as I found out it existed.

Dining with Alice

The pictures I found on the website seemed interesting and it is with excitement that I decided to visit their branch in Ginza (there is another outlet in Shinjuku). The restaurant opens at 5 pm and doesn’t open for lunch. I visited early to sample on some snacks and dessert before dinner.

The restaurant is located on the 5th floor of the Taiyo building on the Ginza main street and as I exited the elevator, I entered a small dark reception area where an Asian (and much skinnier) version of the Queen of Hearts greeted us. She then ushered us through an under-lit hallway until we reached the dining area.

To tell you the truth, the restaurant is much much smaller and darker than I envisioned it to be.  Images of cards were painted on the ceilings and a huge saucer that doubles as a booth stands in the middle of the room. All the chairs where of different designs and colors creating a certain feel of quirky chaos. I chose a table with a sofa in the corner.

Waitresses dressed in mini Alice costumes brought us the menu in this cute box :

The desserts were fun and tasted good.

However, the atmosphere of the restaurant truly made me feel like I was in one of Mad Hatter’s strange tea parties, and maybe it was just a little too strange for me to return. If you haven’t visited this restaurant however, maybe you should drop by just once and join this peculiar feast so you have something to tell your friends.

      The food wasn’t exactly outstanding but it wasn’t bad either. I think that food in Japan only comes in three categories : good, very good and outstanding 🙂

  2. where is it at and where the prices good
