Delicious!

We made a reservation days in advance as this place is very popular. Upon arrival by car there was a line at 5pm waiting to go in. There is a dirt parking lot a hundred meters away, very convenient. The tuna really is melt in your mouth. Impressive! Their English menu is limited, yet we found... read more

Went on Saturday but was rejected as it was just packed.booked for Monday and finally was welcome by a friendly staff.... Tried the maguro sushi and was not disappointed. The ishigaki beef thing was really unique with fat and tenderness!! Then the tofu chanpuru was so good with orion draft beer. Friendly staff and place was packed at 6:30 on... More

This might well be the best rated restaurant on Ishigaki, but if it were in Tokyo it would be about 6,000th. My pacific blue fin tuna sashimi was not eh best quality. The fatty tuna sushi was not fresh, neither was the Ishigaki-gyu steak. So I was quite disappointed. And they allow smoking in the restaurant. Oh, also note that... More

This place is great. Lots of choices and diversity on the menu and everything was easy to share and delicious. For what we ate, we thought the prices were totally reasonable. Highly recommended!

This is apparently the best izakaya place in the city. Food was amazing. The tuna sushi melts in your mouth. Beef is about the same. Reservations should be made a week in advance as its always full. Service is great.

Great izakaya with friendly services, fun atmosphere, and fantastic food. We recommend the excellent sushi, as well as all the Ishigaki specialities (sea grapes, bitter mellon, fried fish, etc.) Everything was great here! Don't miss it!!!

Fresh and tasty food, especially the sushi, at a very good price. We went there for dinner two times without reservation and were able to get a table. However both times the restaurant was crowded and we had a time limit (1h30) to finish our meal, it is probably better to book a table in advance. They have an English... More

Many choices for fresh sushi with very reasonable price. Their service was great. Even though they had trouble understanding English but they still tried patiently to understand what we need. The restaurant is located in downtown area but will need a car to get there. There's a paid parking for about 5 minutes walk. I would recommend reserving a table... More

Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews and have to say that it didn't disappoint! I ordered a whole selection of stuff, including the fabled Tuna Sashimi and all of it was delicious. They were fully booked but as I was a solo diner they found space at the bar for me so I didn't have to wait very long to... More
