Taste:9/10(Delicious. The two sets that I ordered which is sardine in soy sauce and sardine sashimi were good and up to their standard of being one star Michelin restaurant. The sardine were fresh and well prepared. As for the sashimi, the sardine were finely chopped by the skillful chef).
Price:8/10(Cheap. This restaurant serving great sardine dishes during lunch time is a bargain as this is a one-star Michelin restaurant. Good food, low price and good service. The lunch set start from 800 Yen. My two set of meal only cost me 1,400 Yen (USD12) which is well reasonable in Tokyo with such good food).
First set of sardine. Nizakana - sardine in soy sauce. Taste great.
Small dash of fragrant herbs and ginger on the fish. Good.
The lunch set comes with pickles, miso soup and green tea.
Not satify with the first lunch meal, I ordered full portion of sashimi sardine. The sashimi served finely chopped, with addition of some spring onions, lemon, sesame seeds and ginger.
The chef is so skillful. He able to slice the sardine so fast and precise.
