Great homemade Okinawa food. Kind owner and her colleagues.


Visited in February 2022.

This is a restaurant where you can enjoy Okinawan cuisine made by an elderly woman.
The food is definitely delicious.
The anticipation for the dish grows from the first three types of udon that are served to you.
Everything I received was delicious, but I especially liked the stir-fried bitter gourd champuru and yaki udon noodles.

The customer service is frank and comfortable.
The atmosphere was open, and the customers who were drinking at the table next to me were able to leave earlier because they had time to catch a flight, but they left me with a bottle of awamori to give me lol.

I think this is the perfect shop when you want a taste of homemade food.
However, when it is crowded, the response is slow, so please be careful if you are concerned about it.


It's insanely delicious. Tokyo level.
You can tell that they value the taste of the ingredients.
Many regular customers follow the friendly staff.
It is run by three beautiful women who were kind to us tourists. (It's not a snack, so if you're on your own and don't order much, don't come if you're a man who talks too much.) It was delicious! !


This is a must-visit shop when you are in the city.
Enjoying the delicious home-cooked food and interacting with the energetic ladies, you can't help but stay for a long time. The price is also very reasonable.
The seats are always full. At the counter, regular customers are enjoying awamori kept in bottles.
After visiting several times, we were told that we could keep the awamori bottle, so we finally asked to keep it.
I always enjoy looking at the side dishes lined up on the counter, choosing them, eating them, but since the coronavirus warning has been issued, I haven't been able to do so. (Last visit was at the end of January 2020) How are you, ladies and gentlemen? I want to visit the store soon!
