This airy, high-ceilinged Israeli restaurant on a backstreet near Ekoda Station is home to one of the best dinner deals in Tokyo. Shamaim's all-you-can-eat course gets you a generous spread of hummus, falafel, schnitzel, chicken shishlik kebab, pita bread, soup and a variety of small dishes for a wallet-friendly ¥2,400 per person (there's a meat-free version available for vegetarians, too). At that price, we can forgive things for being a little rough around the edges at times, and only the most hardened kvetcher is likely to go home unsatisfied. Sure enough, the place can get packed-out in the evenings: call ahead if you're planning on heading there at the weekend.
