Fresh-off-the-docks seafood at bargain prices - that's the drawing card at this popular chain of 24-hour izakayas. Many fish and shellfish items are ready to grill at your table, and the blowtorch-charred mackerel is particularly entertaining. There's also a wide selection of sashimi, sushi, and very filling assorted-seafood donburi dishes.
Drinks include beer, shochu, cocktails, and various sakes, including a pleasant and light nigori-zake that goes well with seafood. Note that the non-smoking hours at this branch are 11am-midnight; after that the ashtrays come out.
