Spice Diner: Tameike
Spice Diner Tameike: Indian

Tandoori dishes and spicy curries are paired with Japanese craft beers at this unpretentious basement Indian restaurant. The generous tandoori platter was the star of the evening during a recent visit, while spinach curry and a very spicy mutton and onion stir-fry were also first-rate.

The selection of Japanese beers is fairly typical, but with ten taps you'll probably find something you like, and the staff are ready to help with advice. The decor is pleasantly modern and low-key, and while the tables are closely packed, the restaurant's non-smoking policy makes things easier.

Beers are priced at Y700 and Y850 for medium and large glasses, and three-part tasting flights are on offer. Budget around Y3000 for dinner with drinks, or Y800 at lunchtime.
