Fodor's Review

On the south bank of the Sai-gawa River close to the Sakura-bashi Bridge, this elegant restaurant serves Kaga specialties like duck stew with wheat gluten and gori no tsukuda ni, tiny soy-simmered river fish. Kutani china, Oribe pottery, and lacquerware provide the perfect canvas for these culinary works of art. Dinner in a private room overlooking the garden is a splurge, but worth it. In traditional Japanese style, the meal finishes with rice, pickles, and soup; in autumn the broth is clear with herbs and a shrimp dumpling. Full-course dinners start at ¥15,000; the ¥3675 "Ladies' Course," which anyone can order, is a more reasonablly priced option. Lunch bento boxess are ¥3,360. It's a fancy place, so you'll want to dress up a bit.
