The photos on the menu bare no relation to the food that was served to us. Also the portion sizes were very small. The meat was very dry and tasteless.

Uskduar is located near Shinjuku station. Great for winter or cold weather. Free hot tea after the meal. Restaurant is sometimes crowded and no seats available
