Delicious eel rice dishes with polite serving by a old lady waitress. Feel like home.


You have to eat!!!


The staff are very energetic and cute.
The most disappointing thing is that vegetarian tempura is only available in the tempura set meal (there are only three vegetables 🥺).

Overall it was good.
