Fodor's Review

In the heart of one of Tokyo's old working-class shitamachi (downtown) neighborhoods, Sasa-no-yuki has been serving meals based on homemade tofu for the past 325 years. The food is inspired in part by shojin ryori (Buddhist vegetarian cuisine), although not everything served is vegetarian. The basic set menu includes ankake (bean curd in sweet soy sauce), uzumi tofu (scrambled with rice and green tea), and unsui (a creamy tofu crepe filled with sea scallops, shrimp, and minced red pepper). For bigger appetites, there's also a 12-dish banquet (reservation required). There's both tatami and table seating, and the dining room includes a view of the Japanese garden complete with an ornamental waterfall.
