Interesting experience at a standing izakaya! I must say that the staff is very accommodating to guests who do not speak Japanese and cannot read Japanese menus as they are willing to guess what we want and we showed that the dishes we want thru google review photos

The more memorable dishes are the bottarga soba. The fusion of umami savour of the bottarga and the homey flavours of the soba is heavenly!

I would definitely wanna come back here to try other dishes!


Even this is very popular place, still their location is hidden area

Nice food and sake …
Good to know if you are around


Cozy isakaya with excellent dishes.

It's been a while since I last visited, but it's a great store with a comfortable atmosphere and good value for money! My partner was not feeling well and only had 12 drinks, but the price was so cheap that my eyes popped out. Even on a Saturday night in winter, there is no cafe even at 6pm...


Translated from Japanese:

As expected from Ore Co., Ltd., we were able to eat while standing and get high quality ingredients at reasonable prices. Even if you have made a reservation, a seat will not be available on time and you will have to wait outside. The inside of the store is small and there aren't many employees, so it's difficult to order, which is inconvenient, but it's easy...
