Respond to Review of CLOSED: Cafe Chidori
Review: Before you go to Cafe Chidori, make sure to email them or give them a call and tell them when you are coming. They also would like to know whether you would like to have the raw lunch set for 2000 or 4000 yen. It would be best if you speak Japanese or have sb. who speaks Japanese call / email for you, as they only speak Japanese. The lunch set for 2000 yen includes soup, salad, main course, mini desert. I had a pumpkin soup, some kind of salad, raw spaghetti with raw ricotta cheese, and a cookie + chocolate mouse. It was delicious. And the staff (a couple) is very friendly. So it is definitely worth the trainride from Tokyo city center. In order to get to Cafe Chidori, take the Seibu Shinjuku line from Takadanobaba to Musashiseki. You can only take the local or the semi-express, the others do not stop at your destination. If you look at the route from Musashiseki station to the cafe at google maps and print it out and take it with you, and then precicely follow the map, you'll find the cafe easily. It is only a 5 minute walk from the station. So, it takes some time to get there from Tokyo city center, and the staff does not speak english, but the food is very good and the cafe is nice and they are very friendly!
