A tiny alley off main riad...we almost missed it if it werent for the pics from previous reviews and google msps! Great local food at reasonable prices. Bathrooms are TINY. You need to take off your backpack to get into the toilet, but hey, you don't need to pay to use them. Huge oyster for only 500yen at this one place we stopped for lunch. Def stop by for the local experience!

Lovely little street. Smoky, well lit and what a vibe. Mainly tourist, which for some is unfortunate. Most unfortunate is the price of food and drinks, more expensive than literally the street next to it. It’s understandable given how popular it is but just a shame.

I think it’s for the experience/ vibe rather than the food really. It’s a short alleyway with lots of small food stalls (mainly grilled chicken/meat). The vibe is very old Japanese movie style. The food is definitely not very good, service is probably below average . However if you are opt for the environment, you’re in the right place. You can easily find better food elsewhere but just not the atmosphere. As a tourist, 1 visit is enough for me.

Didn’t even realize that we were in the middle of an “attraction”; came upon this narrow street of restaurants while searching for a restroom (very clean for public space) We walked through the packed streets but nothing jumped out at us to eat. It was moody/dimly lit with many places wanting cover charges and posted signs to not take photos of inside. I would appreciate that if I were actually sitting down for a meal.

My friend discovered this place in a guide book and suggested we visit. We were there late afternoon, just as places started to open. It was a good time to be there as it wasn't too busy and we should choose a restaurant. When we left, it was very busy already. I don't know the name of the restaurant we chose but we had excellent meat (pork, heart, liver, chicken) and vegetable (green peppers, onion and mushroom) skewers, cooked perfectly. One friend and I had beer and my other friend had sake with lime. Very fun!
