If you don't have a reservation, then you should go early.


We will have lunch for ¥2,000 and tea (various choices) for ¥400.
The dishes made with careful work are quite good.
Each dish was carefully made, and I was impressed with the deliciousness of the food, which was ``not overly seasoned, but still so satisfying that you won't get tired of eating it.''

I would like to go to the night session again🤤


This is my first visit.
It's usually packed from weekday evenings onwards, so I've always wanted to go there someday, but since summer is coming to an end, I came here with my family of three.
We started with the drooling bird appetizer, and the tomato shumai was delicious, even the kids who can't eat tomatoes enjoyed it.
The gyoza served for two people, but it might have been better for just one. The blackboard conger conger and vegetable grilled with zucchini had a good taste. Is conger conger normal?
Is that hell-roasted spare ribs from the blackboard again?
If you have 2 or more, you can add one at a time.
This has a pretty good taste⭕️I thought it would be spicy, but it has a spiciness that even children can enjoy.
It was a bit much for the crab fried rice and hot and sour soup.
Drink alcohol and eat dessert for a reasonable price.
I'm curious because I don't understand the blackboard very well.

There are only adults around, and the number of items is less than half?
It's a place to drink alcohol.
If you ate like Goro Sanbari in Kogu, it would cost something like that.

Thank you for the meal.
