3,500¥ course at dinner. VERY reasonable. All foods were served beautifully with enough portion and everything was good. The service was also good. Cozy and comfortable atmosphere.


This is our second visit, and their oyakodon was really impressive. Their spicy beef soba was also good!


Wanted something not to heavy for dinner and came across this place.
Was on my own and arrived around 615. There was a few people but could easily get a seat. I sat at the back which had a little garden - nice atmosphere.
The staff were friendly and quickly provided me with a English menu.
I had the regular size zaru tenpura set for 1850 yen - slightly expensive for what you get. Soba was good but the tempura was a little soggy rather than crispy.
But overall good place and worth the visit.
