Walked the streets near our hotel looking for a casual, local place to eat. Happily, we happened upon Chochinyna and there was one last spot for two. No English spoken but there was an English menu...of sorts. We mostly pointed and ordered a variety of items all of which were tasty. The wings were by far our favorite - two... More

Beer and wings and gracious service - who could ask for anything more. These wings are exceptionally delicious as was everything we ate here. The next day we stumbled upon a food and wine event in the park and to our delight, there was a booth of this restaurant with their wings available which we gobbled up immediatly. Eat here... More

Staff were super friendly with us even though we spoke barely any Japanese. The food was amazing and very cheap. Had a wide range of food but the wings were the highlight. They were epic... Seriously. Epic.

Like other reviewers, we were after some dinner that didn't involve sushi for a change. This place fit the bill perfectly. There was a menu with about 60% of items translated on it so some of our choices were a roll of the dice :) We had the chicken wings and they were delicious. My other favorite was the Kurobota...

I have visited Chochinya twice (one in Katamachi, and the one in Morinosato), and I can't get enough of those wings! They are crispy, and the sweet and salty seasoning with sesame is just perfect! (Note: wings are not spicy/hot) During our last visit (3 people) we ordered 40 wings, yakitori (chicken with plum sauce), fries, and rice wrapped in... More

As the previous comment, we were slightly sick of sea food and wanted some meat. This place nailed it! Excellent chicken-wings and yakitori. Highly recommended!

My wife and I were dying for a Japanese meal that didn't involve fish or anything weird (by Western standards). Chochinya delivered. Put this on your itinerary if you are in Kanazawa. Amazing wings and delicious Yakitori in a cool bar environment. Servers were friendly and english was spoken. I loved this place! Make a reservation, its small and they... More
