Great food and great staff! Willing to communicate within English sand provide English menu.

Tofu soup hot pot is a great saver for a winter night dish. Shrimp, stew beef, egg roll are yummy! Cold udon was impressive as well!

Highly recommend!


If you, like me, came across this place on your travels, then this is the type of place you wish to come across when travelling. The sashimi is super fresh and well served. The fried dishes are clearly fried in quality oil. There’s a comprehensive Ishikawa nihonshu selection that they can’t even fit on the regular menu. And everyone there is super friendly even though the place is justifiably busy. They do give you a heads up that dishes might take some time to come and they try to get some orders in early. But the wait wasn’t too bad. They represent Kanazawa well and you really can’t do better than here.


Sashimi was fantastic. They were so fresh and tasty. We also enjoyed Kanazawa-style Oden which was excellent. I particularly enjoyed Yum-potato Agedashi, in zesty broth. Great personality and entertaining stuffs. I highly recommend it!

My first visit was on a Sunday night. I stayed at the ANA Crown Hotel in front of Kanazawa Station and was introduced to this restaurant by the hotel staff, who also made a reservation for me. It was in a good location, just a few minutes walk from the hotel, but it was a little down an alley. Sunday...
