Nice...but nothing special

Wanted to try this place based on other reviews. It is so popular...couldn't make a reservation but happened to be passing just before 5pm and were told that we could sit at the counter until 6.15 The reviews rave about the tuna..but actually you can get the same or better at any revolving sushi... read more

This restaurant is popular with locals as well and I would recommend to make a reservation beforehand even in low season. The food is delicious (especially the sushi)! Some portions can be quite big if you're only two people so go with some friends so you can try more of the dishes. The only thing I'm missing is a non-smoking... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Ishigaki! According to suggestions from others we had tuna (excellent, really special quality!) noodles with sea urchin sauce, spinach salat (especially tasty!) and mango pudding (best pudding eaten in my whole life!). All in all highly recommendable!

Ended up eating here twice, each time got a table immediately without having to wait. Be prepared to take off your shoes and put them in a little locker before being seated. The place has an English menu, unlike many other places in Ishigaki. Service is very quick and friendly. Good for sashimi and sushi, but they also have Okinawan... More

We were lucky to get a table in this restaurant. Probably we looked too hungry and the lady at the front counter pitied us, just after saying the restaurant was full. They assigned us a table on the second floor. We had assorted sashimi, seaweed tempura and peanut tofu. The fish melted in our mouths, as well as the silky... More

Try this place for our family's first dinner in Ishiagaki and we were stunned. The quality of sea food is utterly impeccable. If you think you know "tuna" after a few visits to Tokyo, you have not seen (or tasted) the real tuna yet. Tuna sashimi & sushi Spicy Shirmp Sea urchin noodle (Kind of pasta) Chicken skewers (Yakitori).... All... More

Due to the high volume of customers, I had to miss out on this restaurant on my first-day in ishigaki and make a reservation for the next day's dinner. Note that only an hour and a half is allocated and your last order is taken 15-30mins before your time slot is up. Make sure to try the maguro sashimi and... More

Like a lot of other people are writing, you need to eat the sushi with tuna, and for sure take the set since the price is very good. In general all the things we tried was very good quality and very tasty. they do have a english menu which is helpful.

While this restaurant is a bit hard to find, it is worth it! We made a reservation the same day. We needed to eat early because we have a baby who needs to be in bed at a decent time. This place opens at 5pm. It is a true izakaya, you order many small dishes. As others have said, there... More

This is a small restaurant with lots of fine foods especially tuna. English menue is available. Reservation is absolutely needed - and has to be done a few days before your visit. Price: tuna sushi set (4 sushi and 6 maki) 980 yen. Sashimi mix for one person 900 yen, for two 1500 yen. You can get warm dishes as... More
