“Pretty good - a fun night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

This place is only a few minutes away by foot from Ueno station in the bustling heart of this area (close to the 1010 Mall).

It's pretty noisy and lively inside (which is a good thing) and a bit too smoky (which was a bad thing). But we had fun nonetheless. This place is fun for fish and seafood lovers. Choose some items from the big menu. You grill your fish and seafood yourself on the gas-grill, which is placed on your table. This way you can cook the food to your likings.
They also have a good list of drinks here. And they don't save on the alcohol...strong stuff! It's like an Izakaya...but specialised on seafood. And they do it well! Prices are fair and the food was fresh. The Crab Head was a bit of a let-down though (too much sauce, to less meat). But it's a good option in this area. Be prepared to wait for a table, the place is mostly pretty packed.
