Less stuffy and open kitchen concept makes this bistro like. Lunch at JPY 5000 before tax was a fair deal. Was not that hard to score a lunch spot on a weekday. They take seatings till 2.00pm and close at 3:30pm. Dishes were beautifully presented and service was impeccable. They were very accommodating about switching dishes even though I only managed to tell them about my wife's shellfish allergies at the last moment. Would certainly recommend; and let the picture speak for themselves.

We were able to walk in without a reservation and sit at the counter for the amazing tasting menu. ¥10000 per person, and worth it!
