Great restaurant. Very elaborate and delicious course dinner for only ¥11,000 which I think is extremely reasonably given the quality of the food. Plus, as a coeliac they were able to make my food gluten free at no extra charge. Amazing all round!


Impeccable dining experience! I highly recommend opting for the wine pairing along with the prix-fixe menu. Each glass blended perfectly with its corresponding dish and the chef even offered a couple of additional ‘bonus’ drinks to complement seasonal offerings. Food presentation was beautiful and waiters were extremely helpful in describing / presenting each dish. The space is small, but cozy. Perfect for a quiet / intimate dinner.


It’s really a hidden gem! Very reasonable price, great service and fantastic food.
