Great place with superb ambience. Fantastic lunch set, lots of variety, 4 different kinds of fried fish. Very authentic and straight to the point. The sauces are amazing, remind me of some of the best Indian chutneys. A very filling meal, great choice when hungry. And all this for only 1320 yen!


Came here for lunch craving grilled fish and it exceeded my expectations! Everything tasted great and for the price you can’t beat it!

The only downside is they don’t speak much english and the menus are in Japanese so I recommend having a Japanese speaking person come along if possible.

They are also reservation-only so you should come with a reservation already made using their website. We were lucky and got in with no reservation but had to wait a little outside.

The lunch menu was great and you get a little bit of everything such as four different types of grilled fish, several different tempura, miso soup, rice, and eel. There are also complementary pickled cucumbers and seasonings for the fish.

There were private rooms, as well as a U-shaped bar which is where we sat. I will put this down as one of the best grilled fish restaurants I’ve been to on Okinawa!


The food was amazing, fresh fish grilled in front of you 🥰 sushi by night perfect also 👌


Love the restaurant with many local fresh seafood options. Menu all in Japanese. Not very friendly for non-Japanese speakers. Staff were not trained well with limited profession. But Google Translate did help and we turned out having some great grilled fish. Very satisfied!


Used for lunch. There is no parking lot. There are 4 tables for 4 people and 20 people can sit at the counter. Ordered the grilled fish set meal. They serve freshly grilled fish in order, and all of them were fragrant, had crispy skin, and were very delicious. We also have salted squid and pickles to go with your rice, so you can even get a second helping of rice!
All the seasonings matched to each fish are delicious!
The white rice that poured into the bowl was gone before I knew it! lol
Restaurants that serve delicious fish are rare in Okinawa. I would like to repeat it again!

I visited on a Sunday around 12:00, and the seats were empty. There were signs that about 15 people were there when it opened, so it might be a good idea to go a little later.
