The special one was old chicken indeed. The taste is stronger and the meat is firmer than the baby chicken. (And you can have baby chicken everywhere!) Don't forget to order the ginger rice. It was perfectly matched with the chickens!

The restaurant served chicken legs grilled in salt, pepper and garlic, which are really yummy, and no one should miss them. I tried Hinadori (young chicken) which was tender and good! A bit salty and oily but good to eat with steam rice and veggie. No worries with Japanese menu, because English menu with explanation is available. The restaurant is... More

As the only non-natives dining and with a line out the door, this restaurant is not a tourist trap, though it felt like it. The tender chicken was tender and tasty; the "firm" was like biting rubberbands with greasy snapback. The best experience was listening to the waiter scream and smile as he sat you, cleaned your table, and served... More

No 'wow' factor about the food here, it's simple and straight forward. Chicken! There's limited choice if I'm honest, but I was advised to visit here by some locals I met in Takamatsu earlier in the day. The menu is in English, so no struggle in ordering, and basically I went for the fried chicken, which was incredibly fatty (nice... More

Ikkaku is a well known restaurants in Kagawa, serving Hina and Oya chicken. I usually get Hinadori, soup and rice balls. Very oily, so rice ball is great with the oil. If you have chicken craving, there is no better place than Ikkaku ;)

The drumstick here is really good. Could be a bit oily and salty for some people but I personally like salt and pepper better than any other sauces, so it tastes perfect to me. You can order meal sets at a reasonable price. So far all my friends especially non Japanese that visited really liked it. High recommended if you... More

We tried both the Hinadori (young chicken) and Oyadori (old chicken). The Hinadori was definitely one of the most succulent chicken leg that we have ever tasted. We recommend sharing the Oyadori, which was much tougher and more chewy, but it gets more flavorful as you keep chewing. Interestingly, the skin tasted like gizzard. The chicken were rather oily and... More

The specialty is "Honetsuki Dori" or roast chicken on the bone. We had one order of the Oyadori and one Hinadori both roast chicken thigh and leg done slightly differently. Also had two orders of Musubi-rice roll incl. soup. Topped off with a draft beer large (874 Y ) and one small (360 Y). Total bill was 3854Yen. Good value.... More

a hint of garlic and salt made the chicken taste great! very simple meal, a bit complicated and challenging if you don't want your hands get messy. eating bare hands is the to do it!
