Time Out says

You'll be in for a whole new dining experience at theatre-themed restaurant Suigian. The basement eatery was designed with the help of Hidetomo Kimura, the artist for the annual Eco Edo Nihonbashi Art Aquarium event − which explains the golden koi motifs, embedded in red-coloured wallpapers, which add to the traditional-yet-modern atmosphere. In the middle of the restaurant is a 5.5-metre square stage with an illustration of a large bonsai tree, painted by the famous Kano school, which was active during the Edo period.

On offer is a daily changing program of Noh and kyogen (traditional comic theatre), as well as traditional Japanese dance. During lunch and dinner, you can sample a course meal provided by Edomae-sushi pioneer ‘Sushi-ei’, and for tea time, there's high-quality green tea and traditional Kyoto-style confectionery. From 8.30pm the restaurant turns into a fancy lounge and bar, when you'll be able to pick from the à la carte menu and extensive selection of sake.
