Our party of grown up men/women , child in different nationalities were incredibly happy with TsubaraTsubara. The curry broth comes in choices up to 20 escalating degrees of spiciness which in itself is a fun item & conversation topic. More importantly the broth was appetising & all the ingredients were farm-to-table fresh which always means the taste would be great... More

So glad I did, cause I ended up eating there twice in 3 days!!!!! Not only is the food fantastic, the service is friendly, the beer is cold, and the sake even colder!!!!! My tip... More

Leaving at 1.30pm we noticed about 20 people in the waiting room, so arrive early. JPY 4'700 for 2, so a bit on the... More

This place does one dish very well... Japanese soup curry... so you should come here when you're in the mood for that. Of course there are other Japanese foods available like sashimi but the curry is enough to fill you up. My group all ordered the original recipe, which contains a meatball, carrot, potato, Lotus root in either a clear... More

We had a little screw up with the reservation BUT I'm happy they were able to accommodate us with a table. ARIGATO! The food? DELICIOUS - get the curry soup for sure. Garlic and cheese is a must. We were lucky enough to meet other Canadians and talk about our favorite places on the mountain to board. We will be... More

Definitely try to get to soup curry if you are in Niseko. I couldn't eat it weekly but it's enjoyable about once a month. So many flavours and the right amount of spice to suit you.
