Small place offering small portions of tasty Japanese delicacies. We chose the 8000¥ menu which came with 10 servings, all excellent in both quality and taste. Discreet service. Menu in English, also waitress explained all plates in English. Worthwhile a place for a treat or...More

If you don't speak Japanese, please don't go to Wontana and save yourself a lousy dining experience, they obviously don't welcome non Japanese, should have known from the fact that they don't have English menu

We visited Wontana on a Saturday evening for dinner. We selected the 8000 JPY menu which was 7 courses and delivered a delightful selection of dishes which tickled my tastebuds nicely. The restaurant itself is very stylish, the service excellent and the food delicious !...More

I took my wife (and two teenage daughters) for my wife’s 50th birthday. This place really hit the mark. We ordered the degustation. The kids don’t like seafood so they ordered a la carte. The food is exemplary. The staff have limited English but are...More

The lunch sets are delicious and varied. Even objects on the plate that are odd to the Western eye turn out to be worth exploring - tastes familiar and yet at the same time new. The staff speak accurate but minimalist English. And if they...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
