Urizun Reviews

Urizun Google Average Rating



Don't understand why the rating is not higher. Please make reservations. Local okinawan dishes such as goya chips, tempura onions, seaweed salad are good. Nice place to get aged Awamori too! For the Amt of food and drinks we got, it's very reasonably priced too.


If you want authentic Okinawan food, there is no better place to go. We went here on a Sunday night, didn't make reservation, and were lucky to get a seat. Owner said we could only eat for one hour as they had a party coming. Place was packed with locals and people kept filing in and out. Amazing food, enough awamori to get your wasted. This is the place to visit when you are ready for the real local food.


Very old shop that has air of taking you into a different time. The wines here are supposed to be aged as "ancient" so you may wish to try those. But the star of the place is the local Okinawa food done very well. The pork belly and trotters are very popular and so are the ribs and soba. It gets crowded so make sure you get a reservation to be safe.


Fancy place with good quality food! Try their pork ribs and yam croquette!
