Tiny lanterns light the pathway through the faux bamboo grove upstairs, but we prefer the entertainment at the big counter down on the main level. House specials include free-range chicken from Kochi (both grilled and raw), charcoal-grilled beef, pork and fish, homemade tofu and oden. Dinner with drinks costs around Y4000. (Kaiseki lunches are also available for groups of 8 to 40.)
