Charcoal-grilled,
kushiyaki-style
brochettes and
steaks are the main
specialties here,
with some very good
Japanese craft beers
to wash them down.
The attractively
furnished dining
room is surprisingly
spacious - it's
narrow but very deep
- and it's all
smoke-free, although
smoking is allowed
out in the comfort-
able terrace area.

Highlights from the
food menu include
big slabs of juicy
home-made bacon,
lamb brochettes
marinated in seven
spices, and pleas-
antly chewy,
charcoal-infused
beef tongue. Our
shrimp and brocolli
ajillo was livened
up by copious
amounts of garlic,
and our grilled
marinated zucchini
was pleasantly in-
fused with curry
flavors.

Ten beer taps dis-
pense product from
well-regarded Japa-
nese breweries such
as Shiga Kogen,
Kyoto Brewing and
Swan Lake. When we
last visited they
were pouring four
different beers from
Shiga Kogen, one of
Japan's best brewer-
ies.

Beer prices are a
bit higher than
average for Tokyo -
typically Y1350 and
Y850 for pints and
half-pints - but the
food is very reason-
able so it tends to
balance out. Craft-
beer fans may want
to get here for
Happy Hour (until
7pm), when small
beers and most other
drinks are just
Y500. Budget around
Y4500-5500 for a
full dinner with
drinks.
