I have been religiously going to tsubara tsubara (soup curry) over the last 3 seasons, it is without a doubt the tastiest food in niseko. Lunch and dinner are both reasonably priced (lunch is slightly cheaper) and is a quick, delicious meal. I normally pick a zero (spice level) because I enjoy the flavour more than the spice. If it's... More

We stayed in Popcorn lodge at Izumikyo, along the east village shuttle and niseko United bus route. Both buses stop right outside this restaurant. Level 3 mild spice level is the typical Jap choice. We took level 5 and found it alright for one who like spicy food, and finished all the soup in the soup curry. Ordered a meatball... More

The soup curry is delicious, 3-4 spicy level were perfect for most of us, but 3 is mild and 4 is spicy. We hear this place was around for a long time, it shows.

We visited this restaurant based on recommendation from a friend. It did not disappoint us. In fact, I will rate it as the best meal we had in Niseko. It is very authentic. We tried this restaurant on the second last day of our stay here. If we had discovered it earlier, we would have made many visits during our... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is always great. It is the perfect winter meal, hot, spicy, filling with a lot of vegetables. I always enjoy the tsukune with egg. I highly recommend this restaurant and take any visiting friends to try the delicious food. There is a larger room out back for groups, otherwise a booth... More

This place is unique for the degree to which you can customize your curry hot pot. Flavour, meat, vegetables, and of course the degree of hotness, adjusted to your exacting wishes. Other dishes are also tasty and well made, especially the lamb hot plate and the roast potatoes. Situated in Izumikyo, it's a must visit for anyone staying there, and... More

A nice variation to thick coconut milk type curry. Different level of spicy-ness for individuals. Worth a try. Can go there for lunch before heading to Hanazono on free shuttle bus.

Just had to post months later because I'm feeling curry withdrawal ... this was one of the highlights of my trip to Nesiko :) you must have the curry soup - my husband tried something else and missed out!
