A lovely setting, we got seated and faced the opposite roadside which was similar to a barstool seating area. Food and service great, highly recommend the octopus. Waitresses were very informative and jovial. I would definitely visit again.

My wife and I enjoyed an early evening meal here and were pleasantly surprised. While not expert on Japanese dining Tamago appears to offer a choice of Japanese street food and ramen style meals. The service was knowledgable, quick and efficient. The food when it...More

Great choice of beautifully prepared Japanese food served by attentive (but not OTT) staff. I ordered kimchi ramen and couldn't finish it as the portions are so good! Well worth a visit 👍👍👍👍👍
