Our favourite meal in Japan

This small restaurant certainly lived up to the reviews and was our favourite during our two weeks in Japan. The food was delicious and the portion size very generous.

We visited this restaurant on the ratings and it is just as the others have said. Large portions from appetizer to entree. Food quality was excellent and the friendly couple that run the place we're great hosts for the evening. If your in the area it's a great choice. I will definitely return.

I looked this place up in TripAdvisor and we thought we would give it a try. My husband had the seafood curry and rice and I had the beef curry and rice. Both came with salad and a soup. Servings are huge and it is like real home cooked food. So yummy!!! Highly recommend, the place was full when we... More

I just came back from this superb restaurant. If you want to eat somewhere small, traditional, where you can get "home made" food then go there. This is authentic! The whole place is so lovely, everything, down to the table decoration and the plates. The portions are HUGE and the prices are cheap for what you get. For most dishes... More

I decided to go to Takuma one chilly Japanese night and used google maps to find it. It looks like it has moved as it is in a different place to where google maps takes you but it is not too far away, only about 30 metres or so. If you are coming from the castle direction, keep walking past... More

This small restaurant surprised us with what you can get for 1000 yen: tea, two small starters, a big plate of cabbage and fried pork, and even miso soup and a bowl of rice. And it all was delicious! I don't know how the place can stay profitable with providing this amount of high-quality food for this price, but we... More

We had the chicken with ginger and the pork cutlet which both came with miso soup, rice, vegetables and fruit and was really tasty and excellent value. People so nice, very friendly and thoughtful would recommend.

If you like deep fried stuff then this is the place to be. Serves deep fried pork, chicken or prawns. Local meal called "tonkatsu". The serving was huge and good value for money. Didn't try the japanese style curry - but some of the other diners had it and it also looked good. However - it is very small place... More
