Rokkaku Japanese Restaurant is located within the Washington Hotel in Nishi Shinjuku, just west of Shinjuku Train Station, around 10 minutes walk. Rokkaku is primarily a Yakiniku Japanese BBQ restaurant though they also serve Shabu-Shabu (Japanese hot pot) and Sukiyaki (Japanese beef hot pot).
I went in for dinner on a Thursday night, I did not have a reservation, just walked in and there was no problem getting a table as there was no one else dining there. I got there at around 7.30pm. At about 8pm a few more tables had people dining so I was not alone.
I went specifically for the Yakiniku as I love Japanese BBQ. The menu is only in Japanese but all the food has photos and the waitress I had spoke fairly good English so it was easy to order. I ordered up some good quality Japanese Wagyu beef, some chicken and some pork belly. The plates of meat came out quickly and I was off cooking.
The waitress came over regularly to check I wasn’t burning my food! She would adjust the heat on the BBQ. There are a number of different dipping sauces to dip your cooked meat into before eating.
