We have just had a fantastic night out at this restaurant!! The food is delicious - everything is so fresh! We were seated at the counter and the kind gentlemen next to us shared selections from their meal so that we could taste things! The staff are all so friendly and helpful that even though we struggle to say just a few basic words in Japanese we felt as welcome as if we were locals! We got to have the two Okinawan things that I had been wanting to try - Goya and sea grapes! The Goya is very bitter, but dipped in the sauce it tasted really good. The sea grapes were the perfect accompaniment for the sashimi kibinago. The vegetable tempura that our neighbours introduced us to was delicious - we ordered more of them! Then there was the local marinaded sushi which the chef suggested to us - everything we tried was fantastic.
But what really made it such a lovely night was the atmosphere and the conversation. We talked a bit with our neighbours at the counter and with all the staff. Later we exchanged a few words with the family sat at the end of the counter - their daughter had such a beautiful smile and was so clearly enjoying all the food!! Later still another lady joined in as I was trying to ask the chef whether he dived and if the photos on the walls were taken by him - I did not manage to ask that but did get the name of the fish in the photo in Japanese! It was the best night out of our honeymoon!!
The bill seemed very reasonable for everything we ate, plus beer and sake!
So in short we would say that if you are in Naha and want a GREAT night out - this is the place to go! If we are ever fortunate enough to come back to Okinawa then we will head straight here!!
A huge thank you to all the staff and people we met tonight - what a wonderful evening you gave us!!
