Craving authentic sushi, yakitori, tempura, gyoza, set meals, bento boxes? This is a secret gem that most people have long forgotten existed, and the only lingering people in the restaurant that night were japanese families catching a bite to eat. 

Restaurant Critic

The restaurant is not visible at first, tucked on the side of the street shadowed by a petite zen garden. When walking in you’ll notice the interior takes one back into a Kyoto styled ryokan: you are met by a super-friendly old japanese couple, taken into a room full with memorable Japanese decorations, and if that wasn’t enough- a tatami in the back for that extra authenticity. A perfect place for couples, families, and friends who appreciate the food and culture of Japan.

Food Critic

Doesn’t everyone love things delivered in a box, packed neatly in different compartments, decorated beautifully and taste delicious? One of the many reasons I love bento boxes and set meals. I also reason that one’s selfish desire loves the concept of small numerous dishes place in a box that are all meant to be for one person. Kitayama offeres great set meal selections. They also have a la carte which offers sushi, small hot pot, rice, noodles- all taste wonderfully delicious. A few examples: melt-in-your-mouth fresh sashimi, juicy yakitori, crunchy gyoza, lightly fried tempura etc. Though prepare to pay the price for the abundant quantity of food; 150 pesos for each bento box which comes with 4-5 options/box. Painfully share with others if you are not starving and order something else.

Pros

  • ambiance
  • service: japanese-style service
  • bento boxes
  • delicious authentic japanese
Cons
  • a bit expensive
  • temakizushi had too much rice
