For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I was surprised about the number of menus. Usually, a lunch set is offered in any other restaurants, but dinner set is really rare. Since, this restaurant is located in the business district, I guess that it is crowded with office worker who finish the work every night. Of course, it offers some alcohol, please enjoy dinner with sake.
