A typical izakaya where you have to take off your shoes on entering. The food was delicious, especially the signature mackerel which they torch at your table. We chose the 4,000 yen course that includes an all-you-can-drink menu and set food - it was more...More

This is a really fun Izakaya in the Shimo-Katazawa neighborhood. I'm not sure if this goes on every night, but when our group was there, we had a $40 per person 12 course "tapas" style meal, with all the sake and beer you can drink....More

I loved the food I ate here - the mackerel, braised beef and karaage were all perfectly cooked, flavoured, and presented. There was nothing to fault in the food. The atmosphere was also great - a vibrant izakaya with a bar around a central kitchen,...More

Friendly place, with some English speaking staff, and excellent food. Had the mackerel specialty, "torched" right before your eyes! More than just a novelty, the fish tasted great. Highly recommended.

Delicious food and friendly chefs! Amazing Japanese dining experience! We basically had a chef to ourselves preparing and cooking our Japanese dishes in front of us, the blow torch also came out which was exciting! I highly recommend the flaming mackerel and bamboo sake!

Great place. Loud and lively. We were seated at the bar in a recess (somewhat tricky to get in and out of). Had some drinks and then amazing food. Mackerel blowtorched in front of us was a memorable highlight, but everything we had was completely...More
