Each element of the dish is carefully selected to create a harmonious and satisfying dining experience.

Not only does Saganobori excel in chanko-nabe, but their lunch menu also offers a range of unique and flavorful dishes. From the medicinal curry to the popular five-color natto rice bowl, every item on the menu showcases the chef's dedication to creating innovative and delicious meals.

The perfect spot for a private gathering. Loved all the food, I highly recommend this place.


The Chanko Nabe here is insane. I've been a couple times now that the colder weather is coming in, its just hard to beat how comforting, fresh, and traditional this hotpot is (little tired of eating Ramen lol).

I'd also recommend coming for dinner as during lunch things seem to get a bit hectic since so many business people come by for lunch, I think some have experienced this.


Luckily our server knew English and she recommended the shio Chanko nabe. Everything was delicious and service was great!


Translated from Japanese:

Salt Chanko had a gentle flavor and was very delicious. All the other side dishes were delicious and I was very satisfied. The entrance is hard to find, but once you enter, you'll be surprised at how spacious it is. The customer service from the store staff was also good. Reserve your seat online...


Translated from Japanese:

Shio Chanko is my number one restaurant, located right next to Kanedanaka near Shinbashi Enbujo. I met her shortly after I entered the workforce and was shocked, and since then I have been visiting her regularly for business and private purposes while in Tokyo. As time passes, the ingredients will release soup stock...


Translated from Japanese:

Today's lunch was at the famous Chanko restaurant behind Shinbashi Enbujo! At Saga Noboru, you can taste Oshiogawa-style chanko nabe! And for lunch, we have a limited number of seafood bowls! This is by far the most popular! Aim to be sold out by 12pm after opening...
