Description: Japan's first restaurant to serve blow fish which had previously been prohibited.Blow fish is a speciality of Japanese cuisine served at Shunpanro's hotel and flagship restaurant.Eating blow fish was trictly prohibited until Japan's first Prime Minister Hirobumi Ito ate it at Shunpanro. He then lifted the ban on eating blow fish which then became a popular and integral part of Japanese cuisine.In Shimonoseki the regional pronunciation for FUGU is FUKU,which is the same pronunciation as the Japanese word for luck.Shunpanro wish all our customers to enjoy the delights of our specially prepared seasonal menus which include a variety of dishes especially pleasing to the eye. Regular holiday:Sunday,national holiday and others. Lunch:11:30AM-2:30PM(L.O.2:00PM) Dinner:5:00PM-10:00PM(L.O.9:00PM)

“Just Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

I was skeptical as I have never had blowfish before and had no idea what to expect. However, I thought I would trust tripsadvisor as so many times before it has been right and indeed agian this time tripsadvisor did not fail.
I have never had anything like this before. I went for the blow fish lunch menu, I was blown away!
The service was brilliant and the food was absolutely DELICICIOUS.
When I left the restaurant, the waitress even followed me on the street to help get me a taxi... really? I live in Geneva and no way in hell will a waitress go that far.
Honestly, don't even hesitate, just go, you will not regret it!
I cannot say it enough, AMAZING food.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

I am glad I tried the fugu but I'm not sure what all the hype is about. Most of the dishes we had were flavorless. You had to dip everything in the ponzu sauce to give it flavor. The best fugu we had was deep fried. Tasted like a fried frog leg or fried chicken. The service was very good but extremely underwhelmed by the food.

“Exquisite food and excellent services”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

Tripadvisor did not fail me. My son and I shared one ¥5,400 fugu set for lunch, which includes pre-dish, sashimi fugu, fried fugu, Japanese hot pot, steamed egg and rice porridge cooked with egg, mushroom and fugu fish and a desert. Everything came beautifully presented and tasted fresh. We were very consented. Every cent is well spent.
