Kakiya is as good as it gets for oysters. They were the most succulent and delicious oysters we have tasted having a unique creamy component. We had them raw, fried and grilled and they were all great but the purist in us selected raw as our favorite. Is a busy restaurant but well worth the wait.

Went here for lunch today after reading reviews on TripAdvisor....definitely lived up to the hype! The oysters were amazing & so fresh. The food was a great price considering how modern and hip the restaurant is. I would definitely eat here again!

Here you can eat only oyster (fried, BBQ, fresh, boiled). Please if you love oysters eat them raw with a french or italian wine! The restaurant suggest sakè, but is not the right choice. Eating fried oyster is like eating fried mushroom...

We went here for some oysters. Cold oyster were out of season apparently so we had seven different types of cooked oysters. Never had them cooked before. I prefer them cold but these were pretty good all the same. The wines list was good and cheap as well. If you here I definitely recommend giving this place a go.

Best and largest oysters I've ever seen. Succulent and delicious. Also, not so expensive. The grilled oysters are awesome.

We absolutely loved the grilled oysters and the breaded oysters. The latter was very crispy but didn't lose that fresh oyster flavour despite being fried in oil. It was done perfectly and the dips provided were delicious.

We wanted to try oysters because we heard so much about the great oysters at Miyajima. We were there for lunch. We ordered the BBQ oysters in the shells, and two set meals with oysters in different ways. Great food and taste. We had never eaten oysters like this. Service was fast and friendly. Fair prices.

Family style service...few pretentions...but I have to say...the very best oysters I have had, that I can remember. Each bite was pleasurably scrumptious, and if I could have eaten more, I would have.
