We made a reservation and indeed they are very full. Tried the king crab, sashimi, oden, and onigiri. They were all superb. Good quality, good choices of sake too. Do drop by, and there are also plenty of choices around this area too!

Ebisutei is about 5 mins walk from the Hirafu intersection. Its grilled hokke and oden were absolutely amazing. Spicy chicken wings and tempura were great and highly recommended too. Highly advised to make reservations as walk-in customers were politely turned away.

Delicious and wonderful menu. Well prepared and well thought out. A gem and has so much “hole in the wall” atmosphere. Great drink selections.

Great food and large portions but the extra special factors were the guys running it who were so friendly and the general ambience - felt really relaxed and chilled and then super stuffed!

This gem is worth the scary walk down icy Yamada streets - wear your shoe spikes if you have them! The food is delicious and inventive and the ambiance is cozy. It's a great place to go if you're getting tired of typical Japanese food....More

There is a lot of choice. The food is fresh and delicious. We shared our plates. It's not big so best to book. Would definitely go back again.

A very small place hidden at the end of the street. Better make an advance booking because they seem to be always full. Friendly service and good food.

This tiny restaurant came recommended as the best Japanese food in Niseko and did not disappoint. We were lucky to get a reservation at the bar. The amazing thing was each dish was unique and new (despite a dozen prior trips to Japan). The Oden...More
