Although we made a reservation, the restaurant was quiet when we arrived.

Saki of course and tea were served. The food is excellent, I'd come back.

I tasted sake before in several places but I didn't really enjoy it honestly so I thought I was not a sake person. HOWEVER, after I tried the sake at Kirakuya, I just can't stop thinking about it. Kirakuya is located in Midtown. Once you get in, you feel like you were in a totally different place. I mean..just hard... More
