A visit at @Home Cafe is an unique Japanese experience. At first, we felt a bit akward when entering the cafe with its waitresses dressed and acting like maids. But the maids are incredibly cute and hospitable. They also performed a very entertaining dance number. Moreover, you can also get a snapshot with your favorite maid, for which you'll have... More

I went to the 7F @Home Cafe last week, my first time in a Maid Cafe went as a solo traveler, "my" maid was a cute young girl that spoke fair English, single words, similar to my Japanese, single words, but I was able to get my order across and we were able to have a enjoyable limited conversation, did...

I've just visited the @home cafe, so I can't tell if it is best, but here is my story. I heard about the Maid Cafes before my trip to tokio and I've seen a coverage about a maid cafe, not @home - but that was totally diffrent. If you feel anyhow offended by girls wearing short school girl dresses and... More

My wife had heard about the maid cafes and suggested we visited one and based on the reviews, going to @Home during our day out in Akihabara seemed great. It was fun at first, although given we didn't speak Japanese we didn't get the same level of chat as other guests. Obviously a novelty and kind of weird but also... More

My travel partner to Japan wanted to experience the Maid Cafe Scene. I was different to say the least but definitely a memorable experience. It is not by "cup of tea" so i may never return but my visit here was good. The food was good, the service was good, and they even had a waitress that spoke English. a... More

I'm not sure who this place caters for. There's some families with kids and and women on fun trips out. But there's also queues of Japanese salarymen who come to be served by Japanese maids. Now, nobody comes here for the food. The meals looks ghastly and the desserts are purely for kids (diabetic coma stuff). You can get a... More

Pros: - Lets face it we all know why you are here - You're here to see Japanese women dressed up a maids - To be called up onto stage with a microphone - And have your photo taken with one while you both do a weird pose while wearing bunny ears - And possibly pay 200Y for a premium... More

One of the few experiences in Japan that I didn't enjoy. A fairly long wait in a short queue before we were taken to our table for our '1 hour slot' in the restaurant. When arriving in the restaurant, people are on the stage having their photos taken, and the whole thing is pretty strange! Once seated the menu is... More

If you can overcome your embaressment at the door give it a try. We had a brief 10 minute wait for our 1 hour slot and then we were seated. The maids speak basic English so don't worry to much. The crowd is also quite a mix of age and gender which may go against any preconceptions you may have.... More

The at home cafe is adorable to say the least. I personally had so much fun. The place is small but does have many floors. Floor 4 was strictly Japanese. Meaning no English speakers. Floors 5-7 had English speaking. Kinda. My maid was very sweet but she and I had a language barrier for sure. But that didnt stop her... More
