The first night of our holidays in Japan we passed by here and decided to give it a try just because it looked inviting and traditional. We were lucky to come early since afterward the place filled up very quickly. So it is a bit busy and the live music doesn't make it any more quiet but it's great to... More

The live music was a nice addition to the atmosphere in this busy restaurant, alongside the Steak House on the coast road north of Onne. An interesting menu, ordering done online with a table top computer terminal. That worked and we came away pleasantly full of a whole variety of Japanese dishes. Recommended but ask for non smoking if you... More

Amazing fish. So fresh. Best we've ever had by far. The fish to rice ratio is nuts! Also it's got brilliant decor, friendly staff, a cool tablet touchscreen ordering system plus live music. Affordable too! £35 and we had 5 meals and 3 drinks each! Stuffed. Amazing this place isn't rated higher. Must still be a hidden gem.

Easy for a Gaijin, you can order with a tablet computer! The food was excellent, good combination of Okinawan specialties and Japanese classics. The music really makes a big difference, and made a memorable impression on us. Just awesome place (but watch out for Bitter Melon! It splits opinions, and mine is not overly positive, but...matter of taste).

A small local restaurant with very good fresh food and good service. They speak a bit English. Good price quality ratio for combination menus, for lunch expect to pay less than 1000 yen including beer, and if you come back drinks are half price. The sea grapes, Umi Budo, are a local sea weed specialty with the sashimi. The have... More
