Open 11:30am-1:30, 5:30-11pm (LO). Closed Sundays.

Top-quality seafood, meats and vegetables go into the kushiage here, and while the average dinnertime budget is around Y6000, lunch is a real bargain at just Y1000. The set lunch features eight assorted deep-fried skewers, and since it's the only thing on the menu you can just take a seat at the counter and wait for your freshly prepared skewers to arrive, one by one, on your plate.

Our seasonal selection included tasty whitefish and baby scallops and remarkably tender squid. Even the multi-colored diced pickles are fancier than average. Lunchtime service is friendly and quite efficient, although seating can be a bit tight if it's crowded. No lunch on weekends.
