Unforgettable fried chicken

When we were in Otaru, we decided to try out something special and found this restaurant. We need to take number for your table and sat at the entrance. You can see many signatures on the wall.

We ordered take out from this place and even before we reached the hotel, the delicious smell of fried chicken was already wafting through the air. We thought that by the time we had our dinner, the chicken would have turned into a soggy mess. But an hour later, the skin was still crispy on the outside (even though the... More

Naruto has the best chicken I've ever tasted in a restaurant. The restaurant is worn down, but it is a perfect local style eatery. Nothing fancy, just good food! We had the half chicken set meal that comes with rice, miso soup and tofu. The chicken skin was crispy but the meat was tender, flavorful and juicy. Japanese chicken are... More

Good value and quality on their speciality, old fashioned fried half- chickens. The rest of the food is ok, can be hit or miss. Seafood is fresh, but not their speciality. Downside is smoking is allowed thought restaurant. Get the chicken.... Good choice for lunch.

I went to this place at 810 pm on a Thursday night. It was snowing heavily and the restaurant was located in a dark back alley. I was informed that the restaurant was closed for the day, but managed to take out half a fried chicken for ¥980, having to eat it standing up at a nearby 7 11. The... More

I ate at the restaurant and got takeout from the station. The karage/zangi was good but too much ginger for me. However, the 1/2 fried chicken and sashimi set was excellent. The skin was crispy and the chicken was juicy! I hope they open a store in Tokyo.

Went with my family after being recommended by a friend. No regrets. The sashimi with half spring chicken was great ! Ordered also two sets of "zangi" (5pcs boneless chicken) meal and a children meal. Total 4100 yen. Ambience is comfy, and it will be best of they can have non-smoking area. Very traditional setting with friendly staff. The chicken... More

We had their "waka dori set" (half a fried chicken, rice, soup, tofu, and pickles) and their "osusume set" (half a fried chicken, salad, sushi, chawanmushi, and pickles). The chicken was very moist and the fried coating was crispy. It's not a first date kind of place--you'll be licking your fingers and getting your hands involved in the large pieces... More
