Having said the dining experience was great because of the ambiance, the food was just okay. We came to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Observatory for free and it was evening and hadn’t eaten yet. Rather than go look for a restaurant, we decided to eat here at Good View Tokyo restaurant. I didn’t like the fact that we had to pay a 500 Yen service charge just to sit, but we noticed the ambiance was pleasant and since we hadn’t paid to come up the observatory, we felt it was worth it. Thankfully the food prices were quite reasonable. They food was just okay but since it wasn’t very expensive, it was okay too. What you are paying for is the experience and if you can accept it, it is really a good value for the experience. I also didn’t like the fact that we couldn’t sit next to a window despite there being open spots near a window but they said it was reserved. We were there for over an hour and the spots were never claimed. Besides the fact that there were some things that bothered me about the restaurant the overall experience for my wife was worth it.

Good View Tokyo restaurant is in a perfect location : On the 45th observatory floor of the north tower of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (see separate review) , about 15 minutes walk from Shinjuku Station . The place has a relaxed and quiet atmosphere , although it may get a bit crowded , as many tourists come up here for the observatory .
The restaurant is a gourmet one .
On the table : 2 sets of Beef Curry and rice with a side salad and a soft drink .
On the bill : 2000.00 JPY
The beef curry was very good and the price very reasonable . We have enjoyed the place .

We visited one evening and were surprised at how good the food was. Weren't expecting much and it was delicious, the view of course, was superb. Made for an entertaining eveing, if you stay at Hyatt Regency it's just across the road so you can view during day and then enjoy evening. I would recommend and would visit again.

We waited about 20 minutes for a table and sat at the bar looking straight out over the city. It might be a good idea to book in advance, they seem to have empty tables inside but always a queue at the door, perhaps for an air of exclusivity or due to bookings.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. There was an impressive range of vegetarian meals and the fries with wasabi sour cream are a must! Also try the Tokyo sling cocktail, an original for the bar made of Japanese plum wine. Yummy!
If you are looking for beautiful views and a sophisticated atmosphere at a reasonable price, this is your place. Meal for two and four cocktails came to just over 8000 yen, including the 500 yen per head cover charge.

The Good View Tokyo not only offers great views of the metropolis, but also great meals at a good price. I had the curry meal, which included a salad and a drink (I chose Pepsi in this case), and it was all very good, especially the salad with what they called "French dressing". The waiters, while not speaking much English, were very helpful. Overall, a visit to the Good View Tokyo while visiting the Observatory is a must!
