Well well, we check another off the list of 'Tokyo's greatest sake pubs'. This was decent, just uninspiring and a bit expensive. Having been to a good sampling now, I can safely say that the 'Gauntner list' was written around 10 years ago, and that the 10 recommended drinking outlets on there no longer apply in any way. I'd be happy to update the list, but the izakayas page has everything I'd say...Let's get into the package.
This was Tuesday night after the long weekend, pissing rain, still aftershocks, nucular scarez...not the time most people would pick to go out. So the atmosphere was a bit empty and quiet. But it didn't help that the master and waitress didn't want to talk to us. That left us to focus on drinks and food, but it threw an oppressive blanket over the proceedings.
All that's separating this place from greatness is the prices and the atmosphere.
