Run by the friendly folks at Tokyo Family Restaurant, Good Meals is most notable for their comfortable second-floor "stand" area, where you can pick out some nice imported craft beers from the refrigerators and either take them home or drink them here. (Don't worry, in spite of the name, there is some seating in addition to the standing bar area.)

The twenty or so beers on sale at any given time are clearly chosen by a beer connoisseur, with bottles you don't see every day such as Tiny Rebel Dirty Stop Out, a smoked oat stout from Wales, and Coronado Mermaid's Red Ale. Both US and European craft brewers are well represented, with stock from four or five different importers regularly available.

Most bottled beers are priced Y530-730 to go, with an extra Y300 charge if you want to drink here. There are also a few Japanese craft beers on draft, served in small glasses. You can accompany your beers with food from the third-floor restaurant (unless the kitchen is very busy) - mostly Middle Eastern fare such as couscous and mezze-style dips in appetizer-size portions. The bar also serves espresso beverages and home-made ice candies.

Up in the third-floor dining room you'll find an impressive menu of cocktails made from small-batch liquors and artisanal mixers, plus a handful of mid-range wines.
