Join The Travel Tester in search for great hotspots around the world. This week, we'll visit I Roast in Tokyo, Japan!

On our last night in Tokyo, we did it again and spend a long time trying to find a ‘nice looking’ place to eat in the Asakusa neighbourhood. Something just a bit more than a plastic chair and tube lighting, if you know what I mean.

We had seen this restaurant before, but it looked quite posh and we didn’t feel like cooking our own dinner at that moment, but now we wanted to celebrate our last day in style and have some fun, so here you go:

The Interior

There are separate boots you can sit in, and above each table there is this black ‘chimney’ coming down to the grill. There is even is a little light attached to it. Let the grilling games begin!

The Travel Tester - Bookmark The Verdict

This Asakusa restaurant definitely surprised us. It looked a bit fancy on the outside, but it was actually quite relaxed and affordable. I roast in Tokyo is definitely for you if you’re looking for a quiet night out, restaurant setting and of course great food.
