I was very excited to visit Alice in a Labyrinth, the Ginza branch of the Alice in Wonderland Japan restaurants earlier in the year (2013). I was sorely disappointed.
I had a great night, but that was due to the company of wonderful friends and little to do with the quality or atmosphere of the restaurant. The lighting is very dark, the space is very cramped and the food is bordering on awful.
However, the presentation of the food, the character dressed staff and the decor are fun and something different and the desserts are the only delicious thing on the menu.
I had hoped that it might be suitable to bring the kids for a fun dining experience, but from my experience that night, it is not suited to young children. There is no room for a buggy (stroller), there are no changing facilities and as far as I am aware they don’t have high-chairs. Older primary school and junior high school children might enjoy it though.
There is a big tea-cup booth in the main section of the restaurant. There are a few private booths and the rest are regular tables. I really don’t have much else to say, except the website is fairly horrendous too! You can check it out for yourself here; official restaurant home page or direct to the Ginza Branch.
Due to the lighting in the restaurant it was very hard to get a photo of the decor. We did get some more photos of the food, although they didn’t turn out great either:

Information was accurate and up-to-date, to the best of my knowledge, at the time of posting. Please note that In Saitama started in 2008 and is a not for profit blog maintained by one person. I try to update articles frequently, but with over 500 posts and 300 events it is impossible to keep things constantly updated. Please do check with the official website linked in the post to check for any updates or changes.
It’s too bad that the atmosphere and food wasn’t good, I love themed restaurants!
I know, I was so disappointed! But it was still fun I suppose. Maybe one of their other branches is nicer. I think I might have to go and find out!!
Thank you for your comment ☆:-)
You’ve convinced me. If ever I get to Japan, that won’t be on my list. I know I would have been disappointed too, especially where the children’s experience is concerned.
It would be a waste, especially when there is so much else on offer and of much better quality and ambience. Lots of other great photo opportunities too 😉
