Mr. Ojisan Restaurant Review

: Mr. Ojisan’s menu and calmly efficient service keep the limited seats in high demand. Start the meal with a bowl of maguro natto (fresh tuna chunks with fermented soy beans) before enjoying a teishoku (set menu) meal of your choice. We suggest the grilled sanma (mackerel pike) that is accompanied by miso soup, pickles, a seasonal small dish and rice. Meat lovers will go for the wafu steak served in the same manner. Pull out all the stops and order a sashimi platter. You can't go wrong with the specials, as these are rotated seasonally and often based on the freshest fish from that morning's fish auction. Saké, wine, beer and a small well drinks selection are available.
