Charming Izakaya (Japanese bar), great food and service. We had the shitake mushrooms, clams, horseradish rice, tempura asparagus, pickled vegetables and salad. The cuttlefish potato ordered by the next table looked delicious too. Warm sake was great.

We had dinner there twice. The staff was very nice and food good. We ate mushrooms with cheese, spicy chicken. Dishes with potatoes are specially very good. It is a simple restaurant but good.

I felt bad that we had to leave in a rush to catch the bus so we were not able to complement the chef for the food - hopefully this review would suffice. We had a booking but it was quiet when we were there...More
