Namae no Nai Gyozaya - Mita
The Namae no Nai Gyozaya (literally "The Unnamed Gyoza Shop") in Mita can a little difficult to enter due to the red noren curtain above the doorway, but there are some seriously delicious gyoza dumplings to be had in this establishment. They panfry their dumplings to perfection, and balance the meal with rice and soup.
Sweet Baozi - Jimbocho
Opened in 1964, Sweet Baozi (or suwi-to po-tzu, スヰートポーヅ in Japanese) is a well-established gyoza restaurant. Lunchtimes are usually busy with local salarymen queuing out of the entrance. Instead of the typical gyoza dumplings where the skin is closed at the edges, this restaurant's specialty is to wrap the skin around the filling inside, so the juices leak out a little. The red miso soup at this establishment goes really well with the gyoza!

The set meals at Kairaku (開楽本店) consist of three gyoza dumplings. That might not seem like a lot, but these dumplings are so large you'll no doubt feel satisfied by the end of the meal! The skin of the dumplings has a nice, springy texture, and the accompanying soup is a mix of both seafood and meat.

At Shoryu (昇龍), they call their set meals "gyoza rice." The naming convention is said to come from a secret dish hidden in these simple elements. Since it's so mysterious, the dish is not merely a "set meal," but something more.
Ginza Tenryu Tokyo Soramachi - Oshiage
For those who love gyoza, Ginza Tenryu Tokyo Soramachi (銀座天龍 東京ソラマチ) is the place to be. The name is a mouthful, but so are the dumplings, and the filling is juicy and plentiful—especially when combined with rice.
Daikoku - Shibuya
