If you wish to escape the bustle of bikes and street food for a while, without spending a fortune in a five star hotel restaurant, Skewers is a decent place.

After finding the restaurant we had planned on visiting was closed we went to Skewers as it was very close to our hotel. The food was great, very tasty and perfectly cooked. The waiter was very polite and attentive and the pice was ok. I recommend a visit.

Just from the outside you can see the restaurant is busy serving a lot of foreigner guests. A lot of Japanese who are known to be picky. This is a first good sign. Then you come in and you are welcomed by the owner. Another good indication that this is no food factory. You sit and get the menu. The... More
