the restaurant is well designed and attractive to a westerner; the food was not as special as I thought and frankly if i knew that one needed a reservation when arriving at 11:30 on a monday, i would have rather done the local ramen houses. We had the lunch specials - they were good but frankly not worth the wait.

建物の雰囲気はよかったです。ですが食べ物は特別ではありませんでした。週末、祝日はランチでも大変混んでいるので予約をした方がいいです。my husband (not Japanese) probably enjoyed the experience more than I. This is probably a good place to take foreigners - but on weekend or holiday - make a reservation - even if you come around 11:30 like we did.

Thank N_Midori
