History of

Koso Tsutsui, the founder of the restaurant, was born in the town of Ono in Fukui prefecture on May 8, 1912. His grandfather, Rihei Tsutsui, was a traditional indigo dyer. When business started to decline due to advances in chemical dyes, he opened an upscale, traditional restaurant called Konri-tei.

Koso went to Tokyo and worked as an apprentice at Ginza Suehiro. He became independent in 1950, opening a restaurant in Kayabacho-Shinkawa, which he later moved to Akasaka in 1955. Ever since then, his brilliant ideas have become the foundation of Japanese Western-style cuisine.

Because we believe that the pleasures of the table come from being able to enjoy food and that meals should not be a source of apprehension, we have developed Japan's Western-style cuisine which can be eaten with chopsticks.


Japanese Western-style Cuisine

Akasaka Tsutsui is a Japanese Western-style restaurant located 6 minutes on foot from Akasaka Station on the Tokyo Metoro. The restaurant has been serving delicious Western-style food since its founding in 1950. The famous beefsteak bowl created by the restaurant's founder, Koso Tsutsui, is a perennial favorite and continues to evolve and reach even greater heights of flavor.

The restaurant consists of two floors, one at ground level and one below. The ground floor houses the main dining area and private dining rooms, whereas the basement floor consists solely of private dining rooms. Enjoy your meal in a luxurious atmosphere overlooking the waterfall in the garden.

We invite you to savor our Western-style cuisine suited to the Japanese palate.

Akasaka's famous Beefsteak Bowl

Many connoisseurs of Western cuisine have fallen in love with our Beefsteak Bowl. Premium Japanese Black sirloin is marinated in a blend of tamari soy sauce, mirin, and sugar, then excess fat is drawn out over the grill. The result is our pride and joy— meat that is tender and moist, with the sweetness of the marinade blending with melting butter and black pepper.
