We went there following others posts and that was worth it. Very good tempura, nice local people and great couple managing the place. Very small but very good. Don't miss rhe tempura ice cream.

A small cozy place, we sat at the bar, with few local people, watching the owner preparing the food. Tempura was tasty, fish excellent. The owner is very nice and moreover, speaks English. They offer a menu with miso soup and rice but you can pick items as u like like in a tapas bar

Reserved and went because of reviews. Terrible disappointment and wonder about the reviews! In and out in less than half hour, tempura was prepared in what we regarded as a terrible rush.-stacked on the plate , And quality not very good. owner and chef appeared disinterested. We had two sahimi sets , miso soup the poorest we;ve had inJapan .... More

Chose this restaurant because of the reviews. Have literally just walked out the door and back to our ryokan. We had one sashimi (no tuna, salmon or expensive cuts ) to start shared between two followed by two serves of grilled fish with rice, pickles and miso. Washed down with a beer and a coke. Finished with tempura ice cream... More

Lovely atmosphere, watched a sumo match on tv whilst served delicious light tempura. Owners very friendly. Came with a delicious miso with enoki mushrooms. Not the cheapest we've come across but reasonable and very tasty. We were there in the winter so no other tourists in sight.

This was such a great meal and highly recommended by all four of us who went. Only seats around 10 people along the counter, where you watch your host cook your meal. Make sure you book to avoid disappointment or go early. Great food - you won't be disappointed. Only word of warning - smoking is allowed in this restaurant... More

We would have loved a return visit. Small friendly bar with fantastic fresh food. Very close to the little Mexican place.

Easily one of the best places in Takayama... there's really nothing else to add, but I have to as there is a 100 character minimum for reviews... Food is outstanding (healthy japanese cuisine such as ramen etc.), the owners are very friendly, and it's right in the centre of town.

Trusted Trip advisor recommendation for our last meal in Japan before heading home. Booked for 6.30pm, only customers, TV on beside us all meal or what we ate of it. Poor meal, nil ambience, paid bill and went elsewhere to finish dining. Cannot reconcile our experience with other reviews!!

Found this small Japanese style restaurant as I was exploring the small, narrow back streets of the new town. Having read previous reviews on Tripadvisor I thought ' Gonna try that later'. Went for the 1650 yen set with sake and what a compliment. My best meal so far in Japan. Cooked with heart by the owner right in front... More
