Sanmaruco Curry Takashimaya
Although the curry sauce is made of more than 20 kinds of spices, it has a mild flavor by being mixed with yogurt and fruits into the sauce. Our favorite is a standard beef curry. If you would like to try "curry Omu-rice", this is the best place to come. "Omu-rice" is a seasoned fried rice wrapped by omelet and is originated in Japan. This restaurant offers "Omu-rice" with a curry flavored sauce. Staff in this restaurant are all friendly, and menu written in English, C...morehinese and Korean is available.

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I enjoyed adding some garnishes on the beef curry. Cucumber pickles make this curry more fresh and tasty. Please note that only counter seats are available, so you may wait in line for a while if you visit during the lunch time.
You would have your curry within 5 minutes after ordering. We recommend this restaurant for those who want to have a meal in a short time between shopping. You can also purchase a bag of retort curry in the shop next to the restaurant. It’s good for a souvenir as it lasts for 3 months.
Beef curry
1Must Eat !
Beef curry / ¥691
This is the most popular curry in this restaurant. Curry sauce is deeply soaked into low fat beef and it goes well with the white rice. We suggest that you put some garnishes set on the table to have different tastes. Member's recommendation is ground peanuts which make this curry even milder.
Omu-rice with curry flavored sauce
2Must Eat !
Omu-rice with curry flavored sauce / ¥721
You can choose the sauce for "Omu-rice" between curry and hashed beef flavors. We recommend that you try a curry flavored sauce as it is different from the standard curry sauce. This sauce is thickened by starch and has a lighter taste. Rice inside of omelet is fried and seasoned by curry powder, and it matches with sweet omelet.
4 kinds of garnishes
