The best meal I’ve ever had in Okinawa.
They provide local foods which are very delicate and delicious. The ambiance was cozy and comfortable. The staff and chef were friendly even with language barrier. Overall experience was very good. Highly recommended! And I want to been there again.


Went here under the recommendation by a local. Had the omakase all you can drink liqueur set. It did not dissapoint

They had some of the classics but made a twist with it. Even their tofu appetizer taste heanly. Don't get me started on the chawan mushi. Total of 8 course meal and I throughly enjoy the 1st 7 dishes but the 8th was mehh...

Had some Awamori, sake and umeshu to acoompany the dinner.

I will come back here again ❤️❤️❤️


I always visit every year
You can enjoy Okinawan-style dishes that are elegant and go well with alcohol, but are not too overpowering, such as using island rakkyo instead of soy sauce for sashimi and delicious Yushi tofu.
Perfect for enjoying Okinawa to the fullest


I visited on the last night of my trip to Okinawa.It's truly a taste of Okinawa, a creative taste, and it's really delicious. Recommended.
There's a lot of alcohol, so please try it once (lol)
The general is also a very nice person and can talk to you about various things. If you ever come to Okinawa, I think it would be a loss if you don't go at least once.
Anyway, everything is delicious. I think this is a restaurant you should make a reservation for.
We had a beer, 5 glasses of awamori, my wife had 2 sours and 1 awamori, and we ate various a la carte items for 12,000 yen.
Gurukun's namerou is delicious.
Auntie, please do me a favor.


I visited the store for the first time.
Creative cuisine using Okinawan ingredients.
I ordered the obligatory course.
There are so many great ideas and a lot of carefully prepared dishes. And it feels like a good deal. (It's a must for Kansai people lol) The atmosphere inside the store is nice, and I plan to stop by when I come to Okinawa regularly.
