Shibuya is one of Tokyo's main areas, known worldwide for its landmarks such as the Scramble Crossing and the Hachiko statue. As a hub of Japanese youth culture, it has flourished as a town of art and music with many museums, live houses, and clubs.

Since my student days, construction has been ongoing everywhere, making it a very stimulating place that offers new discoveries every time you visit. Recently, it has also become known as an anime setting, attracting many foreign tourists.

Shibuya, which attracts people from all over the world, is also rich in izakayas, bars, and restaurants. This time, among the many restaurants in Shibuya, I'll introduce "Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo," a legendary Western-style restaurant where history and innovation merge.

Shibuya's Restaurant Scene

Shibuya has over 4,000 restaurants offering various types of cuisine including Japanese, Western, Chinese, and ethnic foods. Known as the "city that never sleeps," many establishments in Shibuya operate 24 hours a day, offering a wide range of choices at any time.

Among these many options, "Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo" is a recommended restaurant offering a unique taste and service.

What is Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo?

Revival of a Long-loved Restaurant!

Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo was originally known as "Shibuya Shokudo," a legendary Western-style restaurant. It opened about 100 years ago, and it's said that even Hachiko, Shibuya's symbol, used to visit.

Later, after reconstruction, it became known as "Manyokaikan," but it reappeared in August 2021 in a Reiwa-era style. Currently operating as a restaurant where you can enjoy casual French cuisine, it offers authentic dishes at reasonable prices. While continuing to evolve with the times, it maintains the concept of "a restaurant that anyone can enjoy casually."

Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo is attracting attention from many people as a restaurant that continues to evolve while preserving tradition in the ever-changing Shibuya.

1-minute Walk from Shibuya Station!

Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo is ideally located just a 1-minute walk from JR Shibuya Station. If you use the Hachiko Exit, cross the Scramble Crossing, enter Center Street, and you'll immediately see the Takagi Building with IKEA on your right. The restaurant is on the basement floor of that building.

There's also an entrance on the opposite side of Center Street, near the Seibu Department Store, which is also accessible. Being so close to the station, it's recommended to drop by casually before sightseeing or shopping in Shibuya. While Center Street is busy with people day and night, the restaurant interior is spacious with a relaxed atmosphere, allowing you to enjoy your meal at leisure.

Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo also has reasonable prices. Appetizers start from 450 yen, with a wide variety of menu items to choose from. If sharing with others, large plates like the "Charcuterie Platter" (1,980 yen) are recommended. There are also healthy menu items like salads and carpaccio.

The lunch menu includes a salad, rice, and a main dish all on one plate, priced from 1,080 yen. You can choose main dishes like hamburger steak or chicken cutlet. If you're hungry, you can add toppings like fried shrimp or fried egg for 150 yen! Additionally, the drink bar, which can be added as a set, is all-you-can-drink for just 200 yen, a surprisingly low price.

The " Kids' Lunch for adukts" is a special menu item available only on weekends. A "kids' lunch" typically refers to a luxurious one-plate menu with multiple main dishes arranged on a single plate. Originally developed for children, it's characterized by a colorful arrangement that's visually appealing.

Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo's kids' lunch maintains this concept but is tailored for adults. It features their signature hamburger steak, an impressive Napolitan pasta, omurice topped with fluffy eggs, fried shrimp with exquisite tartar sauce, and a salad, making it a truly luxurious and voluminous meal. When I can't decide on a main dish, I always choose this!

No.1 Popular Item: Lamb Hamburg Steak

Among the many hamburg steaks offered by Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo, the most popular is the "Lamb Hamburg Steak" (1,800 yen) from the dinner menu. The juicy and succulent lamb hamburg steak is topped with basil sauce. The robust meat flavor of the lamb and the fresh aroma of basil complement each other perfectly. While maintaining the distinctive character of lamb, it doesn't have a strong odor, making it recommended even for those trying lamb for the first time. It's also a plus that it's served on a sizzling hot plate.

It's accompanied by generous portions of popular side dishes: ratatouille and potato gratin dauphinois. The volume is very satisfying. This is definitely a dish worth repeating!

Additionally, a generous amount of truffle is added on top of the steak, spreading an elegant aroma. The bavette steak is a luxurious dish that's both wild and sophisticated.

Is it OK for Family Use?

Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo welcomes family use. There are private rooms available for groups of 6 or more, so it's fine even with children. You can enjoy your meal leisurely without worrying about disturbing others.

They can also accommodate groups of up to 120 people for private events, providing a comfortable environment even for large groups with children. If you have small children, it's recommended to make a reservation in advance or visit during earlier hours.

Recommended Ways to Use

Reservations are not mandatory but making one in advance ensures a smooth experience. You can book either online or by phone. Even if there are no available slots online, there might still be seats available, so it's worth checking by phone.

Shibuya Shokudo Ventuno Tokyo has many private rooms and offers party plans and all-you-can-drink menus, making it ideal for birthday parties or farewell parties. However, for group use or party plans, it's necessary to make a reservation at least two days in advance.

Also, there's a nice perk where you can get a free drink bar by following their official Instagram account. If you can't get a table, don't be disappointed. Take-out is available, so you can enjoy the restaurant's flavors at home or in your hotel.
