Dining in Wonderland: The Concept

Alice in a Labyrinth, located in Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district, is one of seven Alice in Wonderland theme restaurants in Japan. While all of the restaurants are modeled after the popular Lewis Carroll fantasy tales, each has its own unique characteristics and decor.

The Alice restaurants have become a popular spot for both Japanese and international visitors. While this is certainly a must-visit for any Alice in Wonderland fan, it’s also a fantastic choice for a date, party, or special family dinner.

Enter the Labyrinth–and Become Part of the Story!

The Alice in a Labyrinth adventure begins right at the entrance, as guests open a door resembling a storybook, giving the feeling that they are actually stepping into a real-life fantasy. Staff dressed as characters from the Alice books greet visitors by offering rabbit ears and other such accessories, allowing for everyone to become part of Wonderland for the duration of their stay.

Several unique areas make up the restaurant. The Cheshire Cat Room and the Rabbit Seating are two such areas. Large groups may opt to reserve the Tea Party Room. Guests even have the chance to dine inside a giant teacup at the Teacup Room!

With teapots and playing cards hanging from ceilings and large, kaleidoscopic mushroom murals, the decor is everything one could hope for in an Alice theme restaurant.

Much of the menu at Alice in a Labyrinth is British-inspired, offering fare such as roast beef, fish and chips, and meat pie. However, there is also plenty of Italian-fusion cuisine to be found. The fried chicken with berry sauce is a unique dish that is fit for the Queen of Hearts herself. Diners wanting pasta or salad have several options to choose from, as well as three kinds of gourmet fries.

One of the restaurant’s most popular menu items ordered by international guests is the Cheese and Meat Omurice. This fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth rice omelette is surrounded by both cheese and meat sauces, offering two distinct tastes in one dish.

For diners interested in sampling several items, there are several smaller options that are perfect for sharing, or by oneself. The English muffins with a choice of savory toppings are frequently ordered by groups of friends. The “hacha-mecha (nonsense) tea party” offers a selection of petite-sized culinary delights, each served in a glass teacup.

Both the dessert and drink menu are equally impressive. Guests can have a taste of several sweets: Royal Milk Tea Brulee, Apple Kuchen, and a Wonderland Cheese Cupcake, to name but a few. For a truly decadent, shareable dessert, we recommend the Rabbit and Cheshire Cat Lovely Parfait, made with cakes, sherbet, fruit, chocolates, and lots of cream.

There are many original cocktails on the menu, with and without alcohol, as well as standard offerings, such as wine and beer. And of course, what visit to Wonderland would be complete without a cup of tea? There are ten different kinds of tea offered, from classics such as Earl Grey to more unusual blends which include pineapple jasmine and chocolate herbal teas.

If you would like to make Alice in a Labyrinth part of your Tokyo dining experience, it is recommended that you make reservations in advance. Dinner time is especially popular. Menu items may vary depending on whether you visit during lunch or dinner, and may be subject to changes. There are also season-limited items, so you are sure to find new options with every visit! Please note that there is a 600 yen table charge per person. There are various prices depending on your individual order, but the average price is about 3,800 yen.

The restaurant is just a five-minute walk from either Ginza Station or Shinbashi Station. So, bring your appetite, your sense of wonder, and be prepared to have the fantasy dinner of your life!
