A Tes Souhaits is a charming little French restaurant tucked in the backstreets of Aoyama/ Shibuya not far from Aoyama Dori. It looks just like a real little French brasserie and the food is great. I went there for lunch one Sunday and my favourite was a black pepper flavoured chocolate pudding!
This is absolutely my favourite bakery in Tokyo. The croissant aux amandes is just out of this world! They also have branches in other parts of Tokyo, see website below: http://www.maisonkayser.co.jp/
Viron is a French patisserie that also offers lunch. Just make sure that you get there well before 2pm. It's a nice place with atmosphere and the pastries that you can buy there are superb. They also have a branch in Shibuya which is a little less fancy. The Viron millers of Chartres are known for holding the trademark Retrodor baguette patent.http://www.marunouchi.com/common/COM_E/shop/detail.cgi?SH_MSH_code=3018&fn=all&pn=7&SH_MGE_code=1700

Here's an article about Hamburger Inn:
Il Buttero is situated in a lane just off the Hiroo shopping street. It in a old house with a lovely tree outside. The food is your basic Italian and the attitude from the partially Italian staff is a bit macho, but basically it's a place for a good not too sophisticated Italian feed.
Mai Thai is my favourite Thai restaurant in Tokyo. Great Thai food similar to what one might get back home in Sydney (so I'm not sure how authentic it is but hey, it tastes great!). It's crowded so be prepared to line up some nights.
This branch of the Benitora chain situated under a non-descript office building in Marunouchi serves rich spicy northern Chinese dishes. If you're going on a Saturday you need to make sure that you get there before 2pm as they will not let you in after then. The food is great!
