I arrived a bit before opening (5:30pm) and I’m glad I did - the lineup as I came out at the end was quite long! It appears that lots of locals go to this place, and for good reason. Their specialty dish is Tofu Katsuni,...More

Our visit there was not planned, so the surprise of having found such a nice place was doubled. We decided to try some local cousine, so tofu katsuni (made from local tofu) seemed like a perfect choice. It was excellent, I'd really recommend it to...More

The tofu dish really is awesome. Wish I could find it here at home or recreate. Great place to try if near Gora.

We were a bit disappointed with the food. They serve the decent tofu cuisine, but not exceptionally good to justify the long queue. Instead we thought the “tofu” ice cream that was selling just next door is definitely a hidden gem!

Had to wait an hour to get a table but was definitely worth the wait! Tofu was delicious and around £6 was definitely somewhere I would recommend. Also nice place.

Expect a wait (up to an hour), but so worth it. The tofu is delicious and sauce light with a touch of sweetness. Cost was very reasonable.

We visited Goza for the day and was looking for lunch. This place rated very high on TripAdvisor so we thought we should give it a try. When we got there, the line was a mile long. I thought that was a very good indicator...More
