    I enjoyed dinner at "Garlic Garlic", Italian restaurant, located Shibuya, 15 min. on foot distance from Shibuya station of JR Lines and Subway lines …

    It serves Italian cuisine based on garlic. I never saw foreigner at the restaurant.
    They do not need tip.

    But there are problems.

    Maybe the clerks do not speak English, nor they have English menu.

    Copying map in the above site and texts the bellow maybe helpful.
