Sabanisen

Reviewed By SamNSara

Didn't expect too much coming in but to our surprise, everything was very good! We came as a family of 4, ordered small sashimi set, Ishigaki beef sushi, mixed roll, bitter melon fried egg, cheese dumplings, chicken ramen, and a grilled welk. Starters were a couple of prawns with thousand island dressing, they do charge an extra 300 per head for those. Nothing disappointed us! Will come back to this restaurant again. It's quiet, no advanced booking required. Highly recommend this place :)

But I'm a boy. And I care about things like depth of flavour and relaxed atmosphere.The dishes here are beautiful. Lots of diligence in plating.Everything was very light on flavour. The staff are quite bossy - telling you where to stand while waiting, telling you how to sit (as the place is quite cramped), and then telling you how to eat the damned food. This is not some exotic cuisine like banh xeo or something where you need guidance the first time.Really not delicious or relaxing.But chicks dig it. Very cute, blah, blah, blah.Once is enough for me.

Sushi Taro

Reviewed By Ada C

This restaurant was recommended by our dive company. Small Japanese style restaurant. We sat at the sushi bar which was great. The food were reasonably priced and the sushi was very fresh. Also had some okinawan food such as umiputou. Highly recommend!

Akebono

Reviewed By DrGuillaume

Small sushi place near the city office of Ishigaki. I ordered a selection of the finest sushi ("matsu"), so it was 2400Â¥ for around 15 pieces. There was shrimp, salmon, eel, omelette, salmon eggs, urchin, squid, mackerel, and also fatty tuna (excellent!) and raw ishigaki beef.Very simple atmosphere and quick service. I recommend.

Tofuno Higa

Reviewed By anubism

The location of Tofuno Higa is a bit far from the central area. So I recommend you to get there either by car, scooter or bike. Or else, you need to have a preparation for a long walk. Went there with friends around 6ish in the morning for Breakie. I ordered the small tofu set and it's nice and fresh. Moreover, you better visit the restaurant before they sold out all tofu ;)

No English menu, although we managed to figure out enough options by using a Japanese phrasebook. The usual items were all there --- pig ear salad, sea grapes, etc. What we ordered was promptly delivered, well prepared, and delicious. The waiters were very helpful and friendly, despite being extremely busy. If I had only one place to eat in Ishigaki, this would be my choice.

Hitoshi Ishiganto

Reviewed By MMMandM

なかなか予約取りにくいです。電話で予約が取れなかった人は開店と同時に行くと入れる可能性があります。。今回は英語で。I usually write my reviews here in Japanese, but after I read some of the English comments, I decided to give some tips to you guys who are poorly informed due to language barriers.First, if you failed to book over the phone in advance, you should go there directly right after it opens, around 5p.m.~, then they might give you the place until 6:45 p.m. if you are lucky.If you are fortunate enough to get your table, and your appetite level is normal, you should order "Sashimimori (I didn't check the English menu so I don't know what it is called in English there...that's the dish of assorted Sashimi) first!No set of Maguro(tuna) sushi, your first dish should be Sashimimori, because it's full of various sashimis including Fatty tuna, middle fatty tuna and normal tuna (but it was like a jewel!) and costs only 1500 JPY, it's unbelievable. Then you would like add other dishes, I recommend you the sushi of Ishigaki beef, and fried rice with calamari ink.But again, you should taste the sashimimori first, because that's the highlight here, and that should be tasted when you are hungry. You can eat the slice of Chinese radish and seaweeds which could be a good substitute for a salad!

This restaurant offers regional Japanese food in a tradional setting. They had menus in multiple languages and our waitresses spoke good English. The food is interesting and good (would recommend one of the sets plus a few additions) but not spectacular. They have a Japanese song performance over dinner which started mellow but then got the whole place up and dancing at the end. Overall this is a great dining experience and given the excellent atmosphere something I'd recommend for a trip on Ishigaki.

Ishigaki beef salad and pork cutlet rice both superb. Only downside was that it was a wee bit warm inside (only fans) but not too bad.
