Chinese vegetable house Okadaya

Chinese restaurant Chugoku Saikan Okadaya / Since 1956

Your neighborhood Chinese restaurant

Three generations of regular customers come to visit landmark Chinese restaurant

I am the third-generation owner of this restaurant that my grandfather opened in 1955. Over 80 percent of our customers are regulars, with some continuing their grandparents’ dining tradition. Until ten years ago, we had employed cooks from China, but now, our Japanese cook takes great care to craft each dish one at a time. Our menu is child-friendly.

Okadaya flavor has come down through the generations

Classic dumplings are made without using garlic. The former owner has since left the kitchen but comes in regularly to taste for consistency. The thick, delicious wrappings are specially ordered from the factory. Dumplings are 400 yen for a five-piece order.

Chinese food that you will enjoy even if you come every day

We carefully season our items so that you can enjoy them every day. Several dishes use fewer spices that are easy on the palate. Some of our trendier items such as sour hot noodles add spice to your day.

I’m Ryosuke Okada, the third-generation owner/operator. I was born and raised in Soshigaya

We offer set meals, banquet dishes and second floor private dining and more

Mikawaya liquor store

Mikawaya Liquor Shop / Since 1928

Third-generation shop owner, Junji Takeuchi. The shop owner's special bottle is recommended for gifts

Carefully selected sake to offer

The shop owner sells genuine shochu and wine, with a focus on sake selected by tasting. Especially recommended is sake, which is maintained at 0 to -3 ° C throughout the year and is always in the best condition. Brewed sake is a delicate thing that the same taste cannot be made twice even with a top-rated mulberry. In order to serve customers with no mistakes, even the same manufacturer drinks sake once a year.

“The real taste of sake”

If you can tell the image of the taste, such as “Sake of this taste that you drank at that izakaya” or “I want to drink sake with a sweet and clean mouth,” we will propose the perfect sake. We sell with the desire to deliver really delicious sake to our customers.

Popular “Binkago” 2000 yen made by owner

When walking in the city with a bottle of liquor in a “bottle basket”, you may hear “Where are you selling it?” It is strange that just putting any liquor into this “bottle basket” will give a lot of atmosphere. We are very pleased for small souvenirs and gifts. Please use it together with sake.

Japanese sake from all over Japan is lined up
