Food: 2/5. Overrated. very bland and mediocre. Price: expensive. Lunch is cheaper. Customer service: 1/5 The worst customer services I've received in Japan. Our waitress, who apparently is also the supervisor/manager of this restaurant franchise branch, treated I and my friends disrespectfully. She is rude,...More

同三個家庭一行14人,有人提議食蟹道樂,嘗試上網訂位,先知到要早幾日前訂位。所以行街順便直接去舖頭睇吓可唔可以早兩日訂位,好彩都可以訂到! 有好多蟹宴套餐選擇,豐儉由人,平嘅有4000yen到貴到8000yen都有,結果我地選擇咗6000幾yen嘅!後來再加個蟹膏軍艦,蟹粥同燒皇帝蟹腳,全部好好食,一啲都冇投訴!服務仲好好添,14人埋單9萬幾yen,人均500蚊港紙,算喺好抵食! Highly recommended but please do online booking 5 days in advance. Food is great Service is good Not cheap but Good value for money Family and kids are welcomed

You can try asking the hotel concierge to make the reservation for you. I have found this very useful as I don't speak Japanese. In my case, I went early to the restaurant and managed to get a table.
