Located in Nishi-Azabu, just down the hill from Roppongi Hills, the Gonpachi Nishiazabu branch is allegedly the inspiration for the restaurant in Kill Bill.

The food is more or less standard izakaya fare, with some better quality craft beers thrown in. The restaurant can be best described as a Japanese-themed restaurant in Japan. Tsugaru-jamisen music plays through the sound system, the staff are very boisterous, and there are taiko drumming performances. The target customer is very much non-Japanese.

Check the photos near the entrance to see all the world-famous movie stars, musiscians, and politicians who have dined here.
