Local chain of izakaya. Fresh sashimi and not too expensive kaiseki-like Japanese cuisine. Casual atmosphere and staff was very friendly. They offered us free sweet potato fries when our food was taking good amount time to be cooked. My favorite was pasted lotus root with thick sauce.
Would come back or try going to their other locations for sure!


nice small isakaya, they have three restaurant under their management and this is the one started all. there are english menu too. Very popular restaurant, have to queue up everytime but it would not fails you. Seafood is a must, not only shasimi but also roasted and deep fried. be sure that you have the seasonal menu as well, there are additional menu like crabs in winter times too.


The house special sake was amazing! I also loved the oyster
