Really awesome experience. The staff have awesome service - even for a person like myself that doesn’t speak Japanese, they take the time to try to explain and translate through Google! Do make sure to make a reservation in advance as the place is very popular. I’ve been here twice and love it that we were standing by the kitchen bar (best place to enjoy the food and have the chef explain the concept!). The appetizers are amazing - highly suggest them. I think all 4 of their main specials are great! Pork ribs are super tender, beef cheeks yummy, chicken namban tasty!


We love this bar so much that we revisit in our 6 days trip !


Great place to have a drink with delicious finger food. Spare ribs is a must try. The price is also very reasonable.
