Yakiniku Ishiya - Uzumasa Reviews

BBQ joint that was happy to accommodate vegetarians: staff were super friendly and accommodating despite the language barrier. They've got Dolsot Bibimbap on the menu, which we could order "vegetable only". Accompanying Kimchi was great, they also have some vegetables available to throw on the BBQ. Recommended!


I made a reservation for Friday at 6pm. Since it was early, there was only one customer in the store who had come with his family.
There seems to be a second floor, but this time I was able to have a very calm meal in the box seats (private rooms) on the first floor.
All the staff members were polite and made me feel very welcome.

The meat tastes better than the price and I think it's a great value for money.
Honestly speaking, I wish it had a little more volume.
Apparently they also have lunch, so I'd like to go there next time.


The recommended Ishiya lunch was 1800 yen, which felt like a great deal! It was also great that for an additional 390 yen, you could turn the rice into half stone-grilled bibimbap! The second floor seats are comfortable and I want to come again for lunch!
