One of Tokyo's most reliable kushiage shops, Kushinobo offers creative skewers, a decent sake selection and good value for money. A ten-skewer set menu is Y3240 at dinnertime, while an eight-skewer lunch set with soup and rice is Y1080. The lunch is a nice introduction - it features salmon, green pepper stuffed with ground pork, prawn, chicken with celery and other delicacies, all served hot from the fryer.
This particular branch has all non-smoking seats; there's another branch upstairs on the eighth floor in the same building for smokers.
