*See photo for menu

Visited on Saturday at 12:00.

Timely and without waiting
I was able to sit at a table by the window.
(The place was full with me)

Inside the store, there is a pleasant aroma of spices.
Calm Western music plays.

The owner has a cheerful atmosphere.
With people who seem to be regulars at the counter
They serve customers while having fun and conversation.

▶︎What you ordered
▫︎Assorted 2 types of curry (with side dishes) ¥1,200

One species is a rare shark and I decided it right away.
I couldn't decide between chicken or chana for the other choice.
I wanted to try something vegetarian so I decided to make chana.

Incorporating Thai taste
Hidden flavor of lemongrass and kaffir lime

For a rich taste with a hint of salt
I feel refreshed too

It also goes well with coriander.

The spiciness of spices
A sour taste.

As a pub at night
Spiced snacks and alcohol
so that you can enjoy it.

Finish off with curry, of course!

The store is very clean
I can feel the commitment to design.
The owner was friendly and I had a good impression of him.

Thank you for the meal.


I finally got to eat Kozaburo's curry.
The level of hospitality and the taste of the curry are both excellent.
Decided to visit again.
