This is the kind of restaurant that puts meat on your bones, so you can survive the frozen tundra. Those with dainty appetites can certainly find something on the menu that suits them, but those who want to feel the weight of a good meal sitting in their stomachs are likely to be more satisfied. And having been open since 1960, it appears that the restaurant has satisfied more than a few customers. The interior, with its iron and brick, is dim and quiet, but not depressingly so. The mood is generally subdued, though you could hardly call it gloomy. In some ways, it may remind you of what nicer establishments in early 20th century Russia might have looked like. The clientèle consists mainly of older couples and families. During lunch hours, between 11am and 3pm, there are some set meals between JPY800 and JPY2,000. More expensive dinner courses run from JPY3,000 to deluxe JPY10,000 feasts. Other items on the menu begin at JPY800. Wine is very affordable here. Bottles start at JPY1,800, while glasses are only JPY200. Beer starts at JPY500.
