On a whim, I brought my boss to this restaurant. He's the kind of person who prefers his tried and true restaurants, so this was a bit of a stretch for him. We both ordered the garlic ramen and the gyoza. We were both very happy with our choices (and I was relieved). Since that night I have returned to... More

We loved this place so much we came back twice. This place is located on the far end of American village, just pass the canal. There are many restaurants on this street and the entrance to this place looks like a small garden of someone's home. Don't miss it and go to the wrong place. Highlight of the meal -... More

We went to this restaurant in the recommendation of the Hilton Hotel that we were staying in. What I didn't realise about Okinawa is that it is heavily influenced by the large American airbase there, so there is a lot of American style food and fusion food. We were looking for something which was truer to the country we were... More

Uber friendly staff. Awesome setting. Amazing food. What else do you need? The Ramen is off the hook. Goya Champor is amazing. Gyoza is like none other. And the sushi is amazing. Heading back next week, and we'll be eating here at least once.

Going with the review below on the garlic ramen, and I was not disappointed. The chef was friendly and smiley, but more importantly, I don't even know how, but I ended up drinking all the delicious broth "that has been simmered for 18 hours to extract all the essence". If you're around the area ("American" Ferris wheel and area), and... More

We went to Kinpa Ginpa with friends who HIGHLY recommended the place to us for the garlic ramen. This is probably hands down my favorite ramen for when I want comfort food, or just need a good dose of garlic. All of the flavors were amazing, the noodles were cooked perfectly, there was enough garlic to make it delicious but... More

This tiny house/restaurant is easy to miss, but you'll be rewarded when you find it and it's hard-to-see entrance. The sushi rolls are incredible, especially the ginpa roll -- huge and delicious and so reasonably priced! I also had eggplant stirfry which was amazing too. The waitstaff/cooks are helpful and friendly. This is true Okinawan food and our new favorite!!!

This place offers a variety of delicious Okinawan cuisine for a very affordable price (i.e. ordered five different dishes for ¥2400). My favorite is their ramen, salads, and rafute (pork belly)!!

This is a fantastic restaurant that has a wonderful atmosphere and delicious food. The sushi was great and the wasabi very fresh. We enjoyed great cocktails, great food, and cozy Japanese atmosphere. I would definitely recommend coming but without kids, it's a small place and great for a date night or out with another couple.
