  • Great food and great times! One of the best experiences I have had in Japan. I was wondering though the shopping arcade and while at the MTG shop I ran into another foreigner who then took me to this place and also a little stand up bar outside on the main road with foreign English speaking bartender. Many of the regulars of this little stand up bar like to come to practice their English. This made it fun and easy to communicate with locals at the bar. They also recommended where to get food inside and the flavor was incredible. This is a must see attraction of any evening in town.
  • Quite a large food court with wide selection of Asian cuisines, prices are affordable. Biggest downside is smell of cigarette everywhere.
  • Great place to eat! Lots of selection of local Japanese foods and delicacies with various selection of bottled and draft beers. A food court style of setting where there are food kiosks and tables in the middle. A must visit here in Kochi.
  • Fun place to eat and drink. Great guide!
  • The indian naan bread was very tasty, but funny they provided ketchup! Maybe to fit in the local taste. They cooked bonito in a traditional way and it was awesome!
