We came for the tofu and weren't disappointed - Edit

The different textures, flavours and styles of tofu on the menu made this place well worth a visit. It's a more traditional restaurant than others we visited which was a nice experience. It also meant the staff were a little less sure of English. There is an English menu but it wasn’t always clear what to expect.

One of us tried a few a la carte dishes, the other had a tasting menu. We mentioned that we were vegan in case there were fish flakes etc, but we weren't convince our waitress fully understood (we speak a little Japanese so didn’t just shout 'vegan' at her!). That said there was only one element on one of the 8 dishes which we thought may have involved meat or fish.

And about those dishes.... They were great. Traditional Japanese flavours and tofu in fresh blocks, made into dumplings, dried and powdered, jellied... Everything tasted lovely.

Pros: Quality, traditional atmosphere

Cons: English menu was vague

Amazing plain tofu and attentive service - Edit

A previous reviewer mentioned that you could get a few things, but in our experience the only thing we could get was plain Cold and plain Hot boiled Tofu with some soy sauce.

Staff were lovely and attentive. Would definitely go again.

Pros: delicious tofu, wow so delicious, friendly staff

Cons: can only have plain tofu (fish stock in everything

Good tofu - Edit

Lots of tofu options here. Very limited English spoken on our visit but they have an English menu. Dashi is used in many of the dishes but there are a couple without.
