How to Order

Usually at an Izakaya, customers choose several "Tapas" style dishes and either pick what they'd like for themselves or get multiple dishes to share between the table. You can order extra dishes or repeated servings at any time. The dishes come out as soon as they are prepared. To order repeats of your dishes / drinks, simply call out "Okawari Kudasai!" to our staff. If you are allergic to any food or if you are vegetarian, please ask our staff to advise you on your order.
