Top experience and very good food!


The beef tongue, the nodo nankotsu, the Nihon-shu, everything was awesome


I went to this restaurant alone on a business trip to Okinawa.
It was a little late when I returned to the hotel after work, so the restaurants that looked good were already full.
After visiting several restaurants and finding a seat at the end of the counter, which was a bit cramped, we finally found dinner.
When I arrived in front of the store, I thought it was a traditional yakitori restaurant based on the name, but the inside was completely different, with a calm atmosphere with dim lighting.
There were so many options on the menu that I had a hard time deciding what to eat, but since there's only so much I can eat per person, I ended up having several types of skewers, tomato salad, and assorted sashimi.
All the dishes were delicious, served at the perfect time, and were freshly cooked.
The staff at the store took great care of me, and I had a great time.
Next time I come, I would like to come with a few more people and try more different dishes.
It was a feast.
I would like to visit you again.


All the dishes were delicious and there was a wide selection of alcoholic beverages, so I was very satisfied. Also, all the staff members were friendly but kept a good distance from each other, creating a very good atmosphere.

All the dishes were delicious, but the one that stood out to me was the duck and chicken roll with Chinese cabbage. This went perfectly with red wine.
Also, the mackerel sashimi, pork belly skewers, and Chinese cabbage rolls were delicious and left an impression on me.
Although the price was reasonable, it is a very good shop and I would like to visit again.
