Looks very modest outside. Also inside a bith rough. Except for the bar, you sit on the floor. Small private cabinets for 4-6 persons set apart by thin curtains. Menu list in english easy and comprehensive, although less extensive than the japanese. We had sashimi,...sushi, tempura and steak plus a salad. Delicious!!More

The lunch we had was excellent, a very substantial portion, and so very reasonably priced, and the service was great. This place really is a hole in the wall and not easy to find, but if you do manage that, go ahead - you've earned...it.More

This is really a hidden gem in Nagasaki, situated in an alley which not so easy to spot. The sushi is absolutely good and price is reasonable!

Best sashimi in Japan (21 days trip)! The nigiris had a little bit too much Wasabi for western patterns but we were asked about it by the amazing sushiman so... Our fault!

Those were the words used by the friend who suggested we should have dinner at Uotatsu. Meaning that the young chef is very skilled slicing sashimi.This restaurant is located just in front of Edo-machi koen (park) nearby Dejima site. As you know I don't eat...fish. However, my husband was very happy eating one of the best sashimi he has ever had (his own words). He was amazed at the reasonable cost for such quality sashimi. Although it seems very small (8 seats at the bar) they have rooms for a total 50 persons at the back.More

The shop is pretty small. The sushi bartender only speak japanese , so do the other waiter. But they are kind enough to help. the sashimi is superb. And the price is very reasonable.

Went here for lunch (open 11:30-14:00) despite not having an english menu the staff will gladly assist you in ordering. Some of the best sushi I've had here in Nagasaki, not to mention the very affordable price and serving size. Place is relatively small but...cozy. Will definitely comeback and bring friends on my next visit.More

This cozy den restaurant (an apt term for a windowless establishment) served top sushi at a reasonable cost. Located near to the former Dutch enclave/trading post of Dejima, we ordered a filling soup and excellent sushi set for a ¥950 fee (see photo). The place's...mellow atmosphere, food and a glass of Sapporo should provide a relaxing respite after a morning of sight-seeing.More

Visiting Nagasaki for four days, we asked our hotel for restaurant recommendations. Uotatsu was their top izakaya recommendation. The sashimi was delicious, some of the best we've had in Japan. The food and drink selection was wide. We especially enjoyed the awamori, an Okinawa alcohol....The service was fast and friendly, and the prices were reasonable. The location is only about a 10-minute walk from the station, and 5-10 minutes to Dejima wharf. Easy access.More
