Best ramen in town

This place is pretty slept on, at least when I went it was pretty empty and the vibe wasn't exactly exciting... But the food was. Started off with some gyozas, really tasty and properly made, with the proper folds instead of the gloppy mass you'll get at most other Japanese places in town... read more

Located in Lastarria, this restaurant doesn't really look like a good place to eat, but don't let appearances fool you! It's probably one of the few restaurants in Santiago that offer authentic japanese food, with good quality, great taste, and at reasonable prices. The first time I went there, I had a bowl of tempura udon, and a tofu and... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants in Chile under price/quality rating! It's a small and very personalized place, with the perfect atmosphere...Totally recommended! Also they have a lot of handcraft beers! really good!!

I tried other places and here we had the most traditional and delicious dishes out of the other restorants our there. And you receive more than what you pay for. Very satisfying.

People sometimes expect things in a restaurant that it's not the focus of the store, so sometimes there's disappointment. But if you want Japanese food, that you actually would have in Japan, this is the store. Not fancy, not showy, no spotlights on decoration, but food, good food. It's the Japanese restaurant that a Japanese native would feel at home.... More

First of all I don't want to say that I am a Japanese food expert but I have been enjoying Japanese food for many years in many places around the world and lived for some time in Japan so you could trust what comes... First of all, it's not really an izakaya or at least it doesn't have the feel... More

I have been going to this restaurant since 1987. The founder and original owner was Yoko San. About 20 years ago he decided to return to Japan, and sold the restaurant to Ija San, the actual owner. He has been the chef since the beginning, and he has always had a delicious and authentic menu. His rolls are great, going... More

On your way to the bustling streets of Santiago if your wondering around Plaza de Armas or visiting Museo de Bellas Artes or Museo de Artes Visuales, this place should be top of your list for something fishy! The gyoza's are to die for and the sushi is prepared by a master of this art. Also one can spot some... More
