“Excellent Okinawan food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

No English menu, although we managed to figure out enough options by using a Japanese phrasebook. The usual items were all there --- pig ear salad, sea grapes, etc. What we ordered was promptly delivered, well prepared, and delicious. The waiters were very helpful and friendly, despite being extremely busy.

If I had only one place to eat in Ishigaki, this would be my choice.

“Great Okinawan food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

Recommended by Lonely Planet, I wanted to try. No English menu although waiter did speak some English and just look around at what others are eating. I had standard Ikasumi chahan (squid ink fried rice), goya-champuru (bitter melon, tofu, egg), sashimi Moriawase (sashimi assortment), sashimi salad, and fried noodles. All were great dishes and very fresh. I would consider Paikaji one of the best Okinawan restaurants.
