Restaurants around main stations in downtown Tokyo
There are 4 restaurants of GUSTO around the station. When I tried the one closest to the station, there was a long line at the entrance. I gave up trying to eat here. It is on the 7th floor in a building with some other restaurants, but there is only one elevator with a small capacity. I also had to wait in line to get on the elevator. I suggest you go to one of the others if it is peak time or the weekend.
Photos were taken in 2018 and 2019. Prices are current as of November 2019.
