Very popular fried chicken place for locals and tourists

Chicken are very well prepared and very well seasoned. The fried half chicken (980¥) is perfectly cooked. The fried wings has different marinate and not to our tastes. The half chicken set was the most sensible choice. You will need some draft Asahi beer to wash down those fried food, Sapporo beer... read more

I read how people are raving about delicious naruto chicken in otaru and how different it is from any other fried chicken on earth. It was first on our agenda when we arrived in otaru and we got the ¥980 half chicken. It arrived freshly cooked, crisp skin and steaming hot meat with every pull. It was good in terms... More

Kitchen closes at 7 PM on Sunday. The restaurant is NOT OPEN ON MONDAY. We attempted to eat here three times but did not actually get to eat here since the hours are not listed anywhere at the time of this review.

Easy to find, near to JR station Fried chicken itself considered well cooked but overall nothing spectacular really... After awhile, the same dish becomes one dimensional, too dry too salty... Can try somewhere else....

We read about this famous Naruto fried chicken in Otaru before we fly over. This is the freshest, non-oily fried chicken we had ever tasted.

We ordered the fried chicken set with rice, miso soup and tofu¥1000 and half fried chicken ¥980. There is sushi and sashimi too.... More

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.
