Did you know there are more Michelin Star Restaurants in Tokyo than any other city in the world? In fact, as of 2020, there are a staggering 226 to choose from within the Japanese capital. It’s not an accolade that’s handed out lightly either, so it’s no wonder food and drink experiences in Tokyo are such a big deal.

Out of the 226 restaurants in Tokyo listed within the official Michelin Guide, only 11 have been awarded the pinnacle of a three-starred rating. They’re not all about Japanese cuisine either, as a couple of French-influenced chefs have also made the grade.

3 of Our Favourite Michelin Star Restaurants in Tokyo

Below we take a quick look at some of the best Michelin Star restaurants that can be found in the heart of Tokyo, Japan.


The latest addition to the exclusive list of three Michelin Star restaurants in Tokyo is the modern Kadowaki. Located within the Minato-ku neighbourhood. Diners that take a look down the menu here will experience some more unusual combinations. What’s more, chef Toshiya Kadowaki utilises a range of techniques, in order to create an East meets West tasting sensation.

Sushi Yoshitake

Authentic food experiences in Tokyo should include Sushi at least once during your visit. What better place than at a three Michelin Starred restaurant? Sometimes the simplest things can be the most impressive, whereby the Edomae-Sushi is based around the best quality produce. However, you can also sample other culinary delights, such as smoked tuna or the delicacy of Awabi sea snails.

Joël Robuchon

Stepping away from Japanese culture, restauranteur and head chef Joël Robuchon brings a touch of France to Tokyo. Although even foodies with an undisputed knowledge for French cuisine will be in awe of Joël’s talents. This fine-dining experience is far more than your standard high-end restaurant. It’s a venue whereby dishes are presented in a way that wouldn’t look out of place at an international art gallery.

Recommended Dish: Edomae-Sushi

Recommended Dish: Langoustine ravioli with truffle
