DONBURI a rice bowl meal with fresh veggies, a bit of meat, and a delicate soup type sauce, a glass of cold beer and good friends.....special. Bowls does not look like a traditional rice shop but it provides a fusion of east and west in its menu selection of rice and noodle dishes. The decor is modern and iconic (a... More

Not very traditional, but they mixed japanese style with western food. They sells pizza and don-buri in one place! You must try anchovy pizza!

I tried the Roasting Tuna Bowl, Medium Set Size for 1580 Y. Including a Tiny Octopus Salad, Miso Soup & a cup of Green Tea A bit pricey compared to what... More

Great food but be prepared to possibly wait a long time! Took 2.5 hours for a few pizzas and salads...I would try this place again because the food was really good, I'm hoping maybe they were just understaffed the night I went.

This restaurant was a true relief after a day visiting Kamakura. The food is healthy, tasty, inventive and cheap. The atmosphere is cosy and the music is good. And they have free wifi!

One of the few large restaurants in Kamakura. Very good food. Very limited menu so don't look for a large menu selection. Website shows a bigger menu than what was available at lunch. Lunch specials are good. Only gave this 4 stars because it is a little pricey, even by Kamakura standards. Very efficient restaurant with a very unique drink... More

Fantastic little place on the main drag in Kamakura just a few blocks from Hachimangu Temple. Had the smoked salmon bowl set which included ratatouille starter followed by wonderful miso soup and a heavenly donburi bowl filled with aromatic rice, smoked salmon, and ripe avocado. A beverage accompanies the meal - green tea is excellent. Staff is wonderfully kind, there... More
