Hydrophobic soba. Hearing that there is a restaurant serving exquisite tandoori chicken, he visited. It may be better to make a reservation. (There were vacancies when I went.)
The menu is only a tandoori chicken set (?), so you don't have to worry about ordering (laughs)

The taste was... delicious. The vegetables were also nicely grilled and delicious. I ordered beer and wine (no, I think it was just the wine... as I remember...) and it was delicious.
It's not that cheap, so I wonder if there were customers who didn't order alcohol.
The cutlery is also nice, so it might be a good idea to visit once.
Personally, I don't feel like I want to eat tandoori chicken today! yeah. It was delicious. (write twice because it's important)


The chicken and vegetables were cooked perfectly and were very delicious. It is better to make a reservation.
I don't know if the bread is homemade, but it was delicious rather than impressive.
I'm satisfied with just one plate, but I'd be even happier if there was a dessert, or at least coffee.
When I first entered the restaurant and took a seat, I could feel the owner's uncompromising commitment to everything from the menu plate to the tableware and cutlery used.
You can feel the season by changing the seasonal vegetables from time to time.It's very sweet and delicious.
I think the colors were chosen carefully.


You can enjoy tandoori chicken with slightly large thigh meat, and vegetables that are a waste to say the least as garnishes. Both are cooked perfectly in an oven (steam convection oven, maybe multiple ovens with different settings?). It comes with bread, and when it is served, it may seem like a bit much, but once you eat it, you will be satisfied with it. Even women. In fact, I was the only man there while I was there...

It's an easy-to-understand system where you only choose drinks from one menu. It matches the scale of 4 tables for two people, and is served sooner than expected.
When I visited on a Saturday at noon, the place was packed with people spending lunch before or after viewing art in the area. I think it's best to make a reservation before visiting.


Translated from Japanese:

Every time I go, the level of deliciousness increases. I feel grateful and moved by the chef's incredible passion for bringing out the deliciousness of the ingredients. I am always impressed by the vegetable feast (kyouen) that can no longer be called a garnish...


Translated from Japanese:

My wife and I made a reservation in advance and visited for the first time. A small but stylish and wonderful restaurant with only 3 tables. In the past, it was selected as a Bib Gourmand by the Michelin Guide. I was given a menu, but when I opened the box, it was golden ratio tandoori...


Translated from Japanese:

The menu I ordered ☆ Tandoori chicken with golden ratio 2,200 yen (tax included) Organic JAS, ancient seeds, pesticide-free with vegetables and Bridor bread ☆ Cold-brewed oolong tea 400 yen (tax included) Thank you for your meal...
