This restaurant really awesome
Nothing to say about quality

Whenever i visit to fukuoka

Thx for great hospitality to master


(I am a wheelchair user)
When you think of fish in Hakata, you think of Taro Gen.
That's why I've bothered you.

I went there after looking at the reviews
If you are unsure about ordering, here are some recommended items
They explained the dishes carefully.

First, the sashimi.
Each job is done with great care.
Of course, the quality of the fish is also top quality.
This is a must-try item.

For grilled fish, use black-throated finfish and tuna.
With an overflowing amount of fat
The body is fluffy.
The saltiness is modest, personally I would like a little more.
I liked grilled meat with a strong salty taste.
Enjoy the luxurious taste of smooth and light fat and fish
It was the classic salt-grilled dish.

More than anything, what I want you to do with me is
Jako's rice balls.
The accent of perilla leaves is exquisite.
The miso soup that comes with it makes it even more delicious.

Also, the shrimp in the tempura were large and crispy.
All vegetables are delicious
Can you get this quality at this price?
I was impressed.

The grilled food can only be described as wonderful.
In addition to the tenderness and large amount of meat juice.
You can really feel the flavor of the meat,
I regret that I should have asked for a little more.

Although it is a small shop
The customer service was pleasant, and even the general staff
Until sending off.
Enjoy delicious food in a relaxing atmosphere
It was the best shop.

When making a reservation,
Please take the trouble to call me again
From finding an elevator location to securing a seat
Please make sure that you can visit us safely even in a wheelchair.
I'm really thankful to you.
