One of my favorite spots to eat here. They made me feel like a local so fast! I tried every meat the had on the menu. They had organ, tongue you name it! All of it was cooked directly in front of you and it was a fantastic experience! highly recommend. There will be a wait because it is a popular spot!


This was a pick of the lottery of beautiful quaint restaurants and we had a wonderful time.

The grilled beef and grilled pork was my favourite.
The grilled deep-fried tofu was my partner's favourite.

Please take this chance to enjoy Umeshu (Plum wine) on the rocks as it will compliment every dish on the menu.

To finish off the night, our new friend recommended we try the Stingray fin. It has the texture of jerky and has a sweet flavour.

We will make sure to go back on our next trip!


Bopping hectic atmosphere, great tasting authentic little bites, minimal English but they work with you to figure it out. Fun night!
