'Alamas' means diamond in the Thai language, but this chill café on Shinjuku Ni-chome's main drag exudes more of a Balinese vibe with its hip ethnic decor and laidback staff. Look out for the seasonal edibles or go for one of the classic curries, which are voluminous enough to fill up even big eaters. The drink menu ranges from coffee to cocktails, while neighbouring Diamond Studio boasts a DJ booth and daily performances from the likes of DJs and drag queens.
