The food is excellent. The pancake appetizers were especially memorable. You have to take off your shoes in the restaurant, and you sit on a wooden platform, in front of a rather low table. I guess that that contributes to the atmosphere, but I could...More

We family visited after booking table. for Indian vegetarian, this was good place but little pricy. Beancurd kimchi and kabocha pancakes were good, and vegetarian S/b rice was very good. Ambience and soft music and sitting without shoe, surely relaxes.

TripAdvisor asks above: "Is this one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant?" That's really hard to say - I've been to many restaurants in my life, and many were very good. You can't compare this style of cooking to, say, Italian...More
