Taste…★4 (Delicious! Spiced creative cuisine)
Atmosphere of the restaurant...★4 (Quiet atmosphere between an izakaya and a set restaurant)

I got in at 18:00 on Saturday without waiting. We were the first group of customers.
It's quite far from the station and in a residential area. The store also feels like a renovated ordinary private house.
There are only a few counter seats and tables, but the number of seats is small. However, it gives the impression that it is relatively spacious.

All the dishes were delicious and had lots of spices!
The aroma of spices spread in your mouth, with a good balance of sourness and spiciness.
Chicken 65 (deep-fried chicken with spice sauce), masala omelet, and grilled sardines with spices are all good!
The dry curry (kind of like fried rice) was also delicious.

I thought it was a restaurant for adults, but there were also families with small children. One person too.
I think it's easy to use for people of all backgrounds.
It is also recommended for dates as you can spend a relaxing time.

Thank you for the meal.


I visited there the other day after hearing that it was delicious. I arrived before the store opened, so I was able to get in right after it opened. The day I visited was Meals Day, and the menu had instructions on how to eat it, so I was able to eat several different types of curry. It wasn't a punchy curry with spices, but it was an easy-to-eat curry, but the spice gradually came into play later on. Unlike other reviews, maybe it just happened to be a good day?Personally, everything was delicious, and I was able to get refills of rice, so I thought the price was reasonable. We will also visit you on other menu days.


The one and only authentic curry, with a seasoning that is easy for Japanese people to eat, and before you know it, it's gone (*´ω`*)

Does the curry change daily? So it's best to visit multiple times, as it's often full as soon as it opens!
