Normal food. Nothing special,
Tons of rules and you can sit on tatami.
Yeah it just typical japanese restaurant.


My wife and I went to 近江町市場 (おうみちういちば), this is one of the most exciting fish market we had visited so far in Japan. There are so many good restaurants inside the market, but be ready to line up. We went to 市の蔵 (いちのくら), this restaurant open at 11am, but recommend to line up earlier. Their special version kaisen don is definitely one of the best I had tried in Japan. We also like about their private room setting. Highly recommend if you would want to sit comfortably inside a cool room, and don’t have time to line up for those in the market.


Excellent fresh local fish. Fantastic service. I went on a Sunday afternoon and sat at the bar alone with no wait. With little Japanese and Google translate in hand, I was able to order and received amazing service.
I ordered the May special set: katsuo (skipjack) tataki , shiso and cheese croquettes, rice, miso, and pickled vegetables. The katsuo was out of this world and priced fairly.
I couldn’t help myself and ordered extra dishes. The kani (crab) croquette is AMAZING! Sooooo good! Creamy, crunch on the outside, fuwa fuwa on the inside. I also ordered Kanazawa’s famous amaebi (sweet shrimp ) sashimi off the menu. Yes you should get it!!!!
I will return and highly recommend this restaurant above most selections in omicho.


Translated from Japanese:

It was a very satisfying lunch. Three adults arrived on a Friday when the store opened at 11 a.m. I was able to enter the store without lining up. There are many seats inside the store, and there are counter seats, so there were some customers who came alone. shop...


Translated from Japanese:

[Visited in December 2023] ~ We will cook a whole bowl ~ You can choose to cook it as sashimi, charcoal-grilled, or steamed ◎ The recommended cooking method is half-sashimi and half-grilled. (Please allow about 30 minutes for steaming.)


Translated from Japanese:

The crab was so delicious! I want to go there again when I go to Kanazawa. Next time, I wanted to bring more money.There was a wide variety of crabs, and the most expensive one was around 30,000 yen. I couldn't eat it because I didn't have money, but I'll definitely eat it next time...
