We were fortunate enough to eat here a few nights ago (June 2019) and we had a truly amazing meal. Their authentic and thoughtful Okinawan cuisine was second-to-none (the staff recommendations were phenomenal), the awamori was delicious, the space was clean, quiet, and nice and the service was excellent. We were fortunate enough to make friends with the owner, Teiko, in the process and she is an amazing woman. I learned more about Okinawa at that dinner than in a week touring around historical sites on the island -- it was truly a special night that my wife and I will always remember. It was a great meal served by great people in a centrally located area in Naha City -- don't miss it.

(If you'd like another good full review, google " sakazen maeda " which is the romaji for the name of the restaurant)


Very good atmosphere, services and delicious food!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻


A lovely dining experience with wonderfully kind and caring hosts. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain everything to us!


A restaurant serving Ryukyu Dynasty court cuisine, which is a bit more luxurious among Okinawan cuisine🙋‍♀️
I ordered a course, and all of them were excellent😋, I was very satisfied👍️
It has a calm atmosphere and is not noisy, so I recommend it 🍀
There are almost no seats available on the day, so it is best to make reservations in advance~🙋‍♀️
