We had to book to eat here and the booking service was simple. The dinner and dessert was lovely. I did not love the Japanese Vodka that I ordered- def not to my liking. The meal and restaurant were authentic, and the restaurant was comfortable

We went to dinner there as a family. The food there was great. We all enjoyed it so much. After our disappointing Izakaya experience the night before, Rin is an uplifting experience. The price is so cheap as well.

Highly recommend Rin. Interesting and tasty japanese menu. A number of small dishes on the menu to order provides opportunity to try lots of different foods. BBQ skewers of pork were particularly tasty. Good service, japanese and western tables available.

Since Rin was so highly recommended by Trip Advisor our party of four decided to make a booking. Upon making the reservation by phone with the manager John a rather unfriendly chap that insisted unless we would re-confirm with a credit card number 24 hours prior to our booking he would cancel the reservation. He also mentioned that if we did not show up our credit card would be billed for 2000 yen per person (8000 yen in total). An hour or so after the original call he called again but we couldn't pick up the call. So In order to make sure we liked the place and the menu we dropped by that night and checked it out. The four of us agreed that we wanted the booking and reconfirmed our reservation for the following night with the head waitress. She gave us a card with our booking number but did not qsk for any credit card. The next day while we were skiing we saw two calls on our mobile and recognized Rin's No. so we called back and had an irritated John on the phone that said he had cancelled our reservation because we did not give him a credit card No. So we explained that we had a confirmation card and No. from his staff to wish he answered "It wasn't up to the staff to decide". I personally would have told him to keep his reservation and food but we knew our friends were keen so we obliged and provided him with a credit card No. We eventually got our table BUT...
We were assigned to a Tatami seating style table which is very uncomfortable especially for people with back or knee problems which I happen to have! The Tatami Horigotatsu style which is a floor type seating (Tatami style but with a hole under the table) which allows you to sit properly at your table and allow you to be more comfortable to enjoy your meal. I was in pain for most of the dinner which did not allow me to enjoy my food!
At the time of reservation I feel, John the credit card man, should mention the different seating especially that they have other proper table and chairs western style seating. As they are always booked out of course we could not change upon arrival. Our bill came up to 7400 yen well under the "no show" charge! Thank God for that....
BOTTOM LINE: Beware of the Credit Card man and the seating if u have a bad back! Beside that the food is good, well priced and a good atmosphere.

This is a popular and busy little reputation that lives up to its reputation. Seating is for larger groups so if you are a couple, as we were, you sit at the counter. No problem with this as you have a bird's eye view of all the action in the kitchen. The food was delicious and the service was good.
