Great food and friendly service for our family of four. The couple running this restaurant know how make the most of food and setting. The meatballs with rice is spectacular. Fried dumplings too!

We were very lucky to stumble upon this restaurant because it's located right on Kokubunji Street (not Tenman-cho, as listed on TA). It's almost directly across the street from the Hida Kokubunji Temple, about three blocks west of the Kajibashi Bridge. The husband and wife team welcome you with big smiles and a menu in Japanese, English, Spanish and a couple of other less decipherable languages. You can sit at one of about 8-10 seats at the counter or on the floor at a couple of low tables. Although the specialties of the house seem to be vegetarian, there are plenty of delicious chicken and pork dishes, all prepared before your eyes behind the counter with fresh local ingredients. This place richly deserves its No. 1 ranking.

Incredible. A husband and wife team - he cooks and she waits. Exceptionally friendly, they speak English and there are vegetarian options.

Grilled gyoza (pork and vegetable) are light, the pumpkin soup to die for, flavoursome yakisoba with pork and tofu and little amuse-bouches in between. Chilled Sapporo in frosted glasses to wash it all down with too.

Perfect!

As the tripadvisor fan that I am I checked out this place because it was listed as the number one, and after this evening it has earned the top rating by me as well. This place is a gem. Fantastic food (not only vegetarian), good atmosphere, very cheap and good sake. We would definitely come back!

We visited this restaurant and it was a really outstanding experience. We went there based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed.
The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is very cosy.
The hosts were very kind and took time for everyone.
The food was excellent and tasted very good.
The price was also very reasonable. You really get value for money.
When we come back to Takayama we surely will visit them again.
