Came early for dinner, had the pork vege curry. Nice kick to it for a level 2. Love the soup and the lassi drink. It was my 1st experience with this shop and they really impressed with their curry

Picante happened to be right next to the hotel I was staying at so I went down for a takeout. The restaurant is small but cozy and the staff was all very friendly and nice. It was not too crowded when I was there and the place had a comforting atmosphere. I had a chicken soup curry with average spiciness,... More

We have found this place in the dark evening, cold and snowy day. it was hidden from a main road or any foot path. Perhaps because of mountains of snow in Sapporo. This was one of the best finding of hot delicious comforting dinners that we have ever tried in Sapporo.

Picante undoubtedly serves tasty food, but the portion was quite small compared to other soup curry and curry restaurants in Sapporo, and the prices were also higher. The wait was also quite long and the music was very random and not very pleasant to listen to.

This is absolutely different kinds of Japanese food we have ever had. It is a soup curry served with rice. Unlike other Japanese food, this curry is spicy and so tasty (I've ordered an extra spicy which was so perfect). The service was also excellent (Japanese norm, i guess) but slow (if you are in rush, this is not a... More

食物好吃但服務態度不佳,希望只是服務生因為英文不好而產生的感覺。 如果要顧客在外頭等候,可以簡單說而不是只用“out"一個字這樣的用法。讓人非常不舒服。而且所有的服務生都沒有笑容。 食物好吃,但我會提醒大家這見店的服務是罕見的差。 Food is good but the service is terrible. No-smile staffs, if you wish the customer wait outside, you may use any other word instead of "out".

Always crowded, excellent place to enjoy soup curry. They have good varieties, and you can choose ingredients, type of soup, and spiciness. I don't know if they have English menu. Recommended. They don't have vegetarian menu- soup stock includes animal product- do not for vegetarian.

This is the second soup curry place my husband and I tried over a snowy weekend. The presentation of the food was lovely and I especially enjoyed the shredded cheese over the rice. It was better than the other place we tried that looked like a cheese single put over the top of the rice. The English menu was also... More
