Japanese “fast food”. Small restaurant with limited menu, everything tastes really well, rapid service. Friendly staff. Loved the chicken and the spicy cucumber. Decently priced. Be sure to make a reservation, we saw many people being turned down in a friendly way because the place was fully booked all night.

Recommended by our hotel and a good recommendation it was. Reservations are a good idea as it’s a small place. Small portions, as expected, and everything was good. We ordered a second round on some of the food since it was so tasty! The chef stopped by to check on us a couple times. Nice cozy location. Try it out!

Very popular and very tiny so it pays to book in advance. We didn’t but managed to get the last of two outside tables with a glorious view of cow lane, lol. There were heaters going so it wasn’t that cold and comfortable enough. It was kinda tappa like so I left very satisfied by the delicious food but still a little hungry. It was the only Japanese I’ve been to that didn’t have Asashi beer but had a just as nice other beer so no loss. Very polite and friendly staff so would go back but order more food next time.
