We went to Karela based on the recommendation in Lonely Planet, and it was excellent. Food was delicious and so cheap, just 900 ¥ each! Manager spoke excellent English and gave us some recommendations on places to visit.

I needed a break from Japanese food and was happy to find this around the corner from my hotel. Lovely meal and realised how little spice the Japanese seem to use and that I had missed it! Friendly staff who spoke perfect english.
