After reading a few excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, decided to go for Shikairo. The food was indeed very good, we had to wait for only 20 mins, we were the only Western looking tourists there and the view was amazing! The staff was very friendly, quick and good, but there was one problem: being a vegetarian is tricky for a... More

We were the only non-Japanese customers in the crowded and full restaurant at the time we were there, so I'm confused about the reviews mentioning tourists. The restaurant is on the 5th floor and a sign in the lobby said, "No Seats Available," which we took to mean a waiting time for a table. We were seated in about 15... More

Personally I thought this place has become overly commercialised for tourists. We didn't mind the champon, it was ok but definitely over-hyped. We ordered other typical Chinese dishes such as fried noodles, sweet n sour pork, etc. The sweet and sour pork came over fried and the other dishes were pretty bland. Shikairo's saving grace is its reputation as the... More

I was craving champon, so on that front it didn't disappoint. It literally has mountains of ingredients and tastes like it should (I ended up drinking all the soup as well)! The place is on the 5th floor, so if you are lucky enough to get a table with a view, you're in for a treat. I did have to... More

Everything is great here, the taste, the price, the service, the location, and the entire atmosphere. I ate only Sara-udon (皿うどん), fried noodles with sea foods, pork, and vegetables for a dinner, but it was filling enough. It's very convenient for a solo traveler with small budget to eat something of best quality for such low price, contrary to the... More

Seen it in all the review, anyway is just opposite the Ana Crown Plaza we are putting up, might as well give a try. Ordered the Champon, a vegetable and crab with egg. Champon is a tasty soup but nothing spectacular, is just seafood noodle soup, egg and veg was again regular. Not really worth the hype, but portions were... More

The food here was amazing. We made the mistake of arriving around noon, and had to wait at least 30 minutes to be seated. But as soon as we had a bite of the food we completely understood why there was such a long line. The house special Chanpon is incredible and I did not regret a single second I... More

Champon and Sara udon were pretty good and we had wonderful time together as a team of people and enjoy the traditional way of service. It was prompt without reservation but we could use nice japanese mat place and enjoy meal and wonderful service of the waitress and waiters there. Praice was pretty reasonable also

If you are looking for a place to eat the Nagasaki Champon, or Sara-Udon, this must be the place. It is commonly known as the birthplace of the Nagasaki Champon. I can recommend Champon, of course, but at the same time, I would like you to try Kani-Tama. (Crab and Eggs) I may not find any better one ever!
