(Difficult to make a reservation without a referral) This is a hidden gem of Chinese cuisine that can be eaten in a room in an apartment.
When you open the door, you will see a kitchen, and at the back there is a restaurant (indoors) with only two tables.
The only option for your meal is the chef's choice course.
So, I'm looking forward to seeing what comes out that day!
(From 2024) Lunch course is 3,000 yen, dinner course is 4,000 yen. Reservations must be made for a minimum of 4 people, and the restaurant will be reserved for parties of 8 or more.


Visited for the first time after being invited by a friend. A popular restaurant that is difficult to reserve.
In an unusual system, we have to serve drinks, plates, and serve food ourselves.

The inside of the store felt like home, and it didn't look like a store at all. Everything was delicious from the appetizer to the finish!

Choose one course.
Although it does not use high-quality ingredients, it is very reasonably priced. Dondon on a large plate! behaved boldly.
There was a wide variety of flavors, from gentle flavors made with bean paste to those with lots of chili peppers.
At this price, this quantity and quality.
It's almost addicting.
I can see why it's popular.

I visited with 6 friends and we had a great time together.

my friends say
A specialty? Except for the fried chicken, which is sprinkled with lots of chili peppers.
It seemed like they all had different menus.
I would love to hear from you again.

*After April 2023
They said that they have stopped accepting reservations.


Located on the second floor of an apartment just a short walk from Hankyu Hanakuma Station,
A hidden Chinese restaurant

Rather than inside the store, the interior has an Asian feel.
One operation by the store owner alone,
The dishes served one after another are of outstanding taste.
I'm sure you have your own preferences, but for me it's a strike.
Pasteurization is also exquisite!

Everything is carefully handmade, and even the spring roll wrappers are handmade.

Eating Chinese food while sharing it on a large plate is a gathering experience.

Drinks are self-service from the cold case!
It will be accounted for at the time of checkout.
Soft drinks (oolong tea) are free

I'm impressed no matter how many times I go
I want to go again
