Located in a slightly difficult to find location
A restaurant famous for its huge portions!
A small portion is a normal (large) or larger portion.
If you ask for a regular portion, a lady will ask you.
People say things like "It's big" and "Are you okay?"
Then something really big comes out.
This time, I ate a small serving of golden toriage curry bowl.
Curry paste with soup stock
It was exquisitely delicious!
My stomach is full lol
Basically, parking is on the street, so if you go by car, you may not be able to park.


It is located in a residential area between Kumiyama and Yodo.

This restaurant is famous for its large portions, and the [regular portions] on the menu are large. If you want to eat a regular portion, ask for a small portion.

I ate a curry bowl with egg sauce that contained chicken and fried tofu, and it was very delicious.

I think there was about 700 to 800 grams of rice in a normal portion.

All the store staff were kind.

The only payment method was cash.


This restaurant is famous for its shrimp tempura bowl and curry udon that overflow from the bowl. It's hard to find because it's in a residential area, but there is a parking lot for one car next to the store.

Anyway, the portions are huge, so there is a small portion menu, but even small portions are about the same size as other restaurants. The tempura bowl is full of volume with 4 shrimp tempura, chikuwa tempura, and several types of vegetable tempura. There is also Tentojidon. Personally, I find the sauce a little spicy.

Curry udon and curry bowl are the restaurant's most popular menu items, with a choice of meat, chicken, minced fried chicken, oyster balls, etc., served in a thick red bean paste with a choice of spiciness. This is also quite a large portion. Many people choose a small portion and rice.
