Hi, I would like to know about themed-restaurants in Tokyo.
We are 2 females in early 20th, going to Japan in April, and want to at least once, come to themed-restaurant or even butler cafe while in Japan.
I have some ideas : Kawaii Monster Cafe or Ninja Akasaka or some Alice-in-Wonderland-related restaurant (if you guys have any other ideas, please tell me).
The problem is I am kinda confused with reservation and not wanting reserve through middleman (with fee, since themed-restaurant is known to charge entrance fee or any additional fees).
As far as I know, both Kawaii Monster and Alices owned by Diamond Dining, which is can reserve from https://ddmile.com/reservation/d/(restaurant
number). Does they the only way to book? I notice we have to have a Japanese number to reservation validity and of course, we as foreigners don't have one. And their websites doesn't have any inquiries form. Any other way?
Or can we just go there and choose the seat (we want to since we want take pictures)? I have searched that Kawaii Monster can receive guests w/o reservation (dunno about Alice) but we can not choose the seat and probably have to queue really long. Please tell me if my information is wrong.
For Ninja, I noticed from their website that they have abolished the service fee and I can reserve through their website directly.
Is there any additional fee aside from service fee? Ie reservation fee, entrance fee, photo-taking fee, entertainment fee, etc (some restaurants use different terms to "come-in fee" and "service fee" so I dunno...and sometimes they charge so many additional fee and have so many regulation that we don't aware of).
From the three of them, which one is most worthies?
Anyway do they have requirement of order perperson?
Some detailed helps would be appreciated.
