We recommend this as an awesome local experience in Naha. Great service, food, and atmosphere. We ate the Jimami (peanut tofu), Goya pickle dish, rice with pork, sweet potato fries (as recommended) and beni-imo desserts. The music was great and a very friendly ending to the evening! (And bonus - free parking!)

We just got back from dinner at Paikaji. The food is amazing (try to Jimami tofu - made from peanuts, and the sweet potato fries - they`re purple!), the restaurant itself is done in incredibly beautiful Okinawa style, there`s outdoor seating, the greeters wear traditional Okinawan `kimonos` and there are wandering sanshin (3-string instrument) players everywhere it seems. The sanshin player hung out at our table for about half an hour, playing songs, letting our friend play (she`s had lessons before), we danced, and then he even treated us to a free dish of sweet potato crepes. After that, we took pictures with the staff in their beautiful kimonos and then they dressed us up in kimonos too! They even took our picture and printed it out for us there, all for free. Amazing. And the food is very well priced. We even saw fireworks from our seats.
