“Amazing food and a wonderful evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

A fantastic experience all round. I was given a very warm welcome despite my very limited Japanese. The staff were extremely helpful and the food was amazing! (I ordered the Mackerel) A really authentic Japanese experience, one of the best nights of my time in Japan. Thanks to the super friendly locals who were kind enough to share a sake with me and the chefs who made a special effort to make it a great experience. Truly a night to remember. Arigato from Australia!!

“Absolutely amazing food at a very reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This restaurant is impossible to find having been recommended by the hotel - no English on sign outside but the food was the best we had in Japan and the service first class - the bill for two came to £30 with an enormous beer and a Sake! Recommend the chicken kebab, mild mackerel on grill and salad.
