First time we tried Harajuku and we will certainly be back. It is a cosy location, i.e. small number of tables, with friendly attentive staff and excellent food. We had Agedashi Tofu and Shiitake Mushroom Gyoza for starter which were both totally tasty. Followed by...More

Very fresh and excellent food. Interesting to get out of the tourist hub and eat among locals. Be prepared to eat leisurely - service is slow but attentive.

We didn't book a table but were able to sit outside (there are only two tables, so we were lucky). I love sushi but friend does not and we both loved our meals! We split the gyoza, and I had sashimi and the spicy tuna...More

We had high hopes after reading the reviews. Rang up on the day and made a booking for 8:45pm, this was the only time they could fit us in, understandable due to booking on the day. We arrived on time and promptly took to our...More
