“very good okonomiyaki”
Review of U-Maru

U-Maru
Ranked #98 of 889 Restaurants in Ishigaki

Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 January 2018

Umaru was one of the restaurants open for dinner in Kabira when we visited, and we were pleased with our dinner experience. We tried some beef dishes - the Ishigaki beef served was of good quality, albeit not as good as in the Ishigakiya restaurant in Ishigaki town two days earlier. The okonomiyaki (a recommendation from the waitress) was very good indeed - good that it came towards the end of the meal, as it was quite filling..... There is an English menu but it does not correspond to the Japanese one, so ask the waitress if in doubt. English is spoken although it is limited.... prices are cheap.

This is simply the best restaurant in Kabira if you ask me.
The meat is very delicious and the quality is very good. We also had a pancake with shrimps, which is a recommendation as well.

The owners are so friendly and they speak English very well. Nice to have an English conversation! ;)

If you are in Kabira, please go to this place and try the local Okinawan food!

Came here on 2nd night in Kabira and had the okonomiyaki, it was that good came back the next night and had the ishigaki steak. without doubt the best steak I have had anywhere. English menu and limited English spoken by the waiters/owners. would highly recommend even without the beef!

We arrived at 21:10 and even if tripadvisor or google says it closes at 22:00 we couldn't get in. Very disappointing.

Came here with friends on first night of Kabira kitesurfing trip. Very homely, family run local restaurant. Speciality is Okinomayaki (Japanese pancake). Delicious food.
