Whether your style is Dixie Cup or Gilligan Hat this place is fantastic. From outside you see people wearing sailor hats and that's not just the staff. Guests can too! Everyone here was having a fantastic time. Themed or not this place is great!

Great chefs, great food, and entertaining to watch the chefs ply their art. Yes, it may be slightly touristy, but it's on Kokusaidori so that is expected. Doesn't take away from the experience at all. Suggested to make reservations.

This restaurant was recommended in the tourist guide I bought, but I was rather disappointed with it. It's located right on Kokusai Dori, the famous International Street. Unique setting of a ship and staffs were dressed in sailors' outfits. Service was so-so as we felt...More
