A beautiful hidden gem. The food was amazing the staff very friendly. A highly recommended location for dinner.

My partner and I are staying around the corner from here and decided to pop in before lunch ended to enquire about dinner.

We booked for 6pm. The staff were very accommodating they provided an English menu and also explained each dish as it came out as we had chosen the full course option.

We shall definitely come back before we fly home


The menu and system for lunch and dinner are different; this review is for lunch. No reservations for lunch, you must line up. There are numerous curry options to choose from, and you have to get a set lunch of 1 or 2 curries (sides, small coffee/tea, dessert included).
•Curry: great taste, each curry has a curated flavor. There's no "one sauce with different meats" business here.

•Volume: the bowls of curry look small, but that's because they are in separate bowls (rather than all spread out). There is a lot of rice, and you can get another half size refil for free. The sides (lentils, potato, veggies) are decent size. If you've got a western appetite, you'll be fine, but if you're used to Japanese portions, you will feel full! Next time I might get just 1 curry to have a smaller plate.

•Dessert: taste was amazing! The dessert d'jour that day was a chestnut mousse, what a rich flavor. It looks small, but I was satisfied.

•Coffee: my only complaint about the meal is the coffee is small. It is not written as "espresso," so I was surprised.


Tiny magical restaurant, a few minutes walk from Oshiage station. Reservations are needed, but quite easy to make through their website. Fully recommend their small course: the beautiful row of 5 seasonal starters is cooked with such care and talent it brings the simple ingredients to a whole new level. The main is two curries of choice with a side of rice (coconut and keema are absolutely amazing), and for dessert you can choose from a pretty ample list of freshly made, delicate sweets.
Do yourself a favor and visit this charming place to enjoy an evening of incredible food in a warm, cozy woody space with a beautiful garden view and excellent service.
