The food here is legit. Excellent Japanese bar food. Some much to choose from. Don't be fooled by the entry or get lost finding it. You need to walk downstairs to get to it. Find it you won't be sorry

Sake Bar Hagi had all the right ingredients for fun, dive restaurant. You would walk right by it and not notice this hidden gem. If you dared to look down the stairs you'd notice a line of anxious diners all wanting to get in. The restaurant had a mix of regulars and tourists in the tiny space. I sat at... More

A colleague and I ate here on our first night in the city. It was an easy walk from both of our hotels. The food was great, not overpriced, and my drink was delicious! I will definitely eat here again even though there are thousands of choices in the city.

Found this place online and had to try it! Long line and non reservation but that added to the experience! Mixed tables and close quarters with others but we enjoyed that sort of dining! Food was fantastic and amazing value. Had a fantastic night there and would recommend to others! The only thing that let it down was being dragged... More

The place is kind of hard to find with only one small door, but when you go downstairs into the restaurant you find a lively place full of people and nice food. We had to wait for quite a while, but it was a Saturday night so it was ok. We ordered several different dishes and shared, and they were... More

This is a very vibrant restaurant and seems to be busy regardless of the time you arrive. The drinks are very reasonably priced and the sheer variety of food is excellent and entertaining. The staff is friendly, but it can be somewhat difficult to get their attention... The sake service is authentic, adding to the ambiance. Great Find and easy... More

We stumbled across this place which is subterranean and easy to miss. Once you find it, you will go downstairs and walk through the entry door. Now you must write your name on the "list" (like a Dr's office) and wait. There are usually tables available and if not, the table appear to turn quickly. Sit at the counter if... More
