Food is amazing they made us salmon sashimi even though not on the menu, there is a English menu as the waitresses speak a little English- we booked through out hotel in advance and when we left there was a line up to get in.

Loved this restaurant. Had our hotel call to reserve and they said they were full for the duration of our trip. We went anyway to see if there were any no-shows. There was no room but they let us reserve for two days later at 5pm, and it was definitely worth the wait and the early dinner. We left completely... More

My friend visited the restaurant few days ago but too full to get in, so she booked a table for dinner few days later. We ordered Uni and Tuna sushi. The tuna 大トロis the best one that I highly recommend everyone should try it! The beef fried rice is a bit salty that we can't finish it. I drive there... More

Came here without reservation. They did not have any seats, so we made a reservation for a few days later. It seems to be very popular among tourists and locals. Fortunately, when we left, they suddenly had some spots free and the woman looking after us, came running, so we eventually had a seat. So props for the services! The... More

四角豆またはアダンの刺身食べた。その後の2週間同じものをさがしても見つかれなかった。 This place serves a great variety of food all apparently fresh and good. The highlight for me was the local "square beans" and adan sashimi. I couldn't find them anywhere else in the next two weeks travelling in Okinawa.

Glad that I made reservation or else they just do not allow walk-in at all. The tuna sushi set was superb in quality, very fresh toro. The ishigaki beef sushi also was so good. We tried the fried squid rice it also didn't disappoint us. I am sure I will visit this place whenever when I come to Ishigaki again!

Due to many positive views at Tripadvisor, my friend and I decided to try this restaurant. A few days before we arrived Ishigaki, we booked a table at the main shop with the assistance of the hotel staff. The hotel staff told us the restaurant had 2 shops and recommended us the main shop since the other branch was fully... More

友達の紹介で行きました。=English is following= シーズンオフの2月というのに、お店は予約必須で、6時ですでに満席。マグロがおいしいのはいわずもがな。驚くべきは、ほかのメニューも豊富ですべておいしく、量が多くて、本当に注文に迷います。観光客用の店ではなく、主に地元の人に愛されているお店だと感じました。メニューがおいしすぎて、豊富すぎるので、2日間分予約をすればよかったと後悔しました。 We visited at this restaurant in February which is supposed to be low season there, but there were so many local people and couldn't get in without any reservation. We booked a moth before. An extremely high quality and delicious with very reasonable prices. They had not only fresh seafood but beef, vegetables and more.

This is one of the must go restaurants in Ishigaki (the other one being Paikaji on the same road). The sushi is delicious and very cheap. 800Y for eight extremely thick pieces of maguro tuna sashimi! You need to book well in advance so just pop by on your first day in Ishigaki to see when they will have a... More

We made a reservation days in advance as this place is very popular. Upon arrival by car there was a line at 5pm waiting to go in. There is a dirt parking lot a hundred meters away, very convenient. The tuna really is melt in your mouth. Impressive! Their English menu is limited, yet we found plenty to enjoy. The... More
