Dontsuki Hidari Reviews

A rare place that specializes in shellfish dishes. Very impressive course layout and freshness. Thanks to the previous review for the ease of navigation. Highly recommended for shellfish lovers!!!


Great find, great food. Not easy to find. It's at one end of a narrow alley that's easy to miss. Look for the Dontsuki Hidari sign. The entrance is at the corner nearest to the near road. The door is a sliding door, so you can't tell that it's actually the entrance. I couldn't find the doorbell as suggested but a previous reviewer. If you find a door handle, it's actually just a wall - the real entrance is about 2m to the right. I have attached some pictures of the real entrance here.

We had the shellfish courses. Each dish was good and some were very good, and they were all presented in a captivating manner.


Offer only shellfish Japanese dishes. we ordered the the 9 course set menu everything cooked perfectly. Just like others mentioned it is in a dark alley and difficult to find. It is also very small place. Reservation probably is critical unless you show up right at the open time like we did 5:30pm.
