The food is really good. Went for dinner. 17000 Yen /person. Is worth for the food and atmosphere, but not the service.
The service is just very normal, the lady staff not really friendly. Our appointment at 7pm but we was late, reached around 7:30pm... The dishes will keep on coming out no matter you finished your dish or not....
When come to their closing times, they will keep on reminding you they are closed and chase you out 😅😅😅

Sorry to say that very good experience for the food and atmosphere but the service can be improved.... 😆😆😆


Opening time on google is not updated for this restaurant. Went there for lunch (shows on google they are closed for lunch and only open for dinner) on a weekday and it was very quiet. Tried their limited time lunch set. It was good but wasn’t mind blown…super amazing. The chicken soup was good but wished it was a tad bigger for the set menu.


If you want to try this amazing chicken soup, come for the lunch! Dinner is a little pricy for over 10000yen per person but it's totally worth it if you can afford it. But for ppl who don't know if they like it or not, the lunch set is affordable, same quality as the dinner and you can experience this signature dish in Tokyo. Highly recommended!
