I went to here for dinner. There are abundantly good menu in that restaurant. My most favorite is Sashimi by local fishes. It was so delicious but much cheaper than Tokyo's counterpart.

I read with surprise the 2 reviews from people who were turned away for lack of proficiency in Japanese! They were clearly a little nervous at the door, but it was rainy and we were wet and hungry and felt very welcomed. To our knowledge, there is no English menu, but there are pictures... and we do know some fish... More

We travelled Japan to try seafood of various locations. This place had a fun atmosphere and the daily menu changes slightly according to whatever's in season. They have a good selection from shellfish air dried fish (interesting item, must try IMO, the customers heat up the fish themselves on a little coal grill). The owner looks after the restaurant floor... More

Met at the entrance by a very confrontational manager, 4 out of the 5 of us have lived in Japan for years so the "Japanese speak only!" tactic wasn't an option. First told the place was full, which it clearly wasn't! Then that it was last orders "soon", how soon turned out to be in 90minutes! In the end we... More

In fact my wife and I didn't even get a chance to try this place, we were simply rejected of entry straight at the entrance simply because, as tourists, we couldn't speak Japanese. We tried this place on our first night at Kanazawa and a young lady who could speak English told us politely that the place was full and... More

We have had lots of great meals in Japan but this place ticks all the boxes. The food is superbly fresh and simply cooked. They have an English menu. We only speak a few words of Japanese and it wasn't a problem. We did get little extras to try and despite the language barrier the chef happily chatted to us.... More

We had some of the best sashimi ever at this restaurant! Nobody speaks English and menu is in Japanese, but they told us tourists visit who dont speak english and somehow it always works out. Once they found out we could speak Japanese, all staff members started talk to us and gave us some small dishes and sake on the... More
