One of my worst dining experience in Japan (and I've lived in Tokyo for the past 10 years). We specifically asked for a non smoking table (in Japanese) and we ended up next to smoking salary men. Staff was mostly composed of college girls either rude or slow, some obviously in a bad mood. Food was served in the wrong... More

Read about the place in the Lonely Planet guidebook but the place did not at all meet our expectations. Looks very nice but service was quite bad for Japan (some staff very slow, some even in a bad mood), and the English menu was very limited. Quality of the food was ok but not everything was very tasty and not... More

The one BUT about this restaurant is the fact that they have 2 menus, the tourist one in English and with the typical photos, and the genuine Japanese one, without photos. The food you really want to eat in this place is ONLY available in the Japanese menu, and that's the Kaiseki, or Kaga Kaiseki, which is a menu of... More

At first sight this place looks really nice. It was crowded and the table setting was nice. Even some sort of booth setup. But service was poor. And they even charged extra for it, at least thats what the menu said. The food was best compared to Japanese tapas style. Small dishes and it tasted OK. But in the few... More

The restaurant is in a convenient location, accessible on the South Western corner opposite the JR station (ground level, enter on the left side of the building). Booking is needed - when we arrived before 6pm for dinner we took a queue and came back at 7pm for our reservation. The food was decent, for the price it could be... More

We could choose from a limited English menu. I choose the "meat" skewers. They did not know what kind of meat. Well, when the dish arrived it seemed to be bacon and chicken skin!!! 3 pieces. Awfull taste. That was all besides of 3 pieces of spring union and half a musroom. Drinks were full with ice so the real... More

We settled on Daiba after wandering around central Kanazawa, not having anywhere particular in mind (when the intended restaurant was closed). It proved to be an excellent choice, as both the food and service were faultless. We chose a number of dishes from the extensive menu so were able to experience a good slice of the available food. Each dish... More

Fun venue---easy to get to across street fro Kanazawa station. Our family (4 adults) had a great evening there: good food, friendly service, reasonable price/ private rooms. The duck stew was very good, sashimi also very good. We went on a Monday night and did not need a reservation. There were many business people there, so it may get more... More

We came here based on TA reviews, and we were not disappointed. Both the sushimi platters and the cooked dishes were excellent ~ so good that we came back the next night, something we rarely do. While it's true that they have a menu in English, we found that the waitress was quite willing to make suggestions. I found their... More

This highly rated and popular and easy to see why. Conveniently located near the station (what a work of art!) this izakaya proudly serves the regional food style called, "Kaga Ryori,' the Kanazawa sub-regional cuisine of the Noto peninsula, which the locals are proud and extremely happy to serve. First up, they have Yebisu beer on tap, the beer I... More
