Great for Vegetarians as well as meat eaters ( one of our party is Veggie). The food was great and made to order so you are given an option to how spicy you would like your dish. The nan's were also really good. The service...More

Eating gluten free in Japan is not impossible but it's very difficult. Yak and Yeti not only offered gluten free options, but understood cross contamination issues as well. The food was delicious and the people who worked there were so nice. I highly recommend this...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
