They served very tasty fried chicken, the set meal includes half a chicken and is ok for two to share, if just want to have a taste, prices are also reasonable. You may also want to try their local beer, Otaru Beer.

We made this our first meal in Otaru. The fried chicken is marinated with salt. Crispy skin, juicy n tender meat without the oily discomfort from the usual fried chicken. Their best seller is the original half chicken costing 980yen.

We had a number of fried chicken serves here. They serve two principal types of fried chicken. One is whole pieces of chicken with bones in place or the other is the de boned battered variety. They have other items on the menu but fried chicken is the highlight. The latter had ginger mixed in with the batter. This imparted... More

The looks of fried chicken is simple but delicious and crispy. We have sharing 2 set chicken among 5 persons during the time visit. But all is regret, we should order each person a set. Is damn nice of their chicken. I love it.

Forget KFC, Popeyes or even Jollibee. This fried chicken is the real deal. Crispy skin coupled with moist and juicy meat without that lingering oil taste. Set lunch @ 1,000 JPY inclusive of a soup, rice, some vegetables and tofu. Order, pay at the counter and food will be served to your table. The place is popular amongst locals so... More

For travellers bored of Japanese fare in Hokkaido, this will be a treat. The fried chicken is prepared to perfection. It is served with the chicken piping out and still oozing juices. It is absolutely heavenly. Don't miss this if you are in Otaru. The fried chicken doesn't taste oily at all.

We arrived on a Tuesday, slightly after lunch hour but it was still pretty packed. We were seated within 10 minutes. Looking around us, there are both locals and tourist but I would say more tourist. The staff place a card (written in Chinese) at our desk which is the instruction on how to order and our table number. The... More
