Sushidokoro Kippei Reviews

Five adults and I brought our one-month-old grandchild to a Japanese-style room for a meal as a baby shower gift. The nigiri for the lunch set was average, but the eel, fatty tuna, amberjack, and nodoguro that I ordered individually were excellent. The amberjack was especially delicious. The Japanese-style room requires 10% of the food and beverage cost, but I was satisfied with the fact that they also prepared a place for the baby to sleep.


It was located in a quiet residential area, with a spacious lot, and had a nice atmosphere from the outside.
It's about 14,000 yen, including side dish, crab and Chinese cabbage, sashimi platter, 16 pieces of Yoshihira nigiri, and 3 additional drinks.
The taste is not strong and the ingredients are delicious.


Lunch at Yoshihira in Nara City. I came here with high expectations, but this is a super talented sushi restaurant that exceeded my expectations.
The world of Shota's sushi that I was looking for.

I made a reservation for a private room with my baby and went there with my family for lunch. They prepared a futon for the baby. We added nigiri and red soup stock to each of the Hana Gozen and Lunch Gozen, and the total cost for 4 people was less than 20,000 yen. You can order one nigiri piece at a time. The view from the room window was also wonderful. All the sushi is delicious and you can keep eating it forever. The red soup stock was also very delicious. By the way, the frames displayed in the room and shop are works made by the general using ``Haran'' and washi paper.


My daughter took me there for Father's Day.
The food is prepared and served right in front of you by a veteran chef at a counter seat.

As expected, the ingredients are fresh, the grips are good, and it's very delicious. The total cost is around 400 yen to 1000 yen. As expected, if you eat your fill, it will be enough. They also have nigiri sets and lunch sets, so you can eat them at a great price.

There is also a tatami room, but there is a small charge for the room. The view was outstanding, so we said that next time we would like to sit in a tatami room.
