The whole kitchen is GF which is a nice change in Tokyo. Lots of amazing choices including fried chicken waffles and fried gyoza. A must in Tokyo

This tiny cafe is 100% gluten free. The menus are clearly marked in both English and Japanese as well as vegan or dairy free options as well as one gf beer option. We had the pizza, gyoza, and Japanese fried chicken which were pretty standard. We would go back for dessert as the crepes looked delicious. The salad also looked really good. Be aware that this place is very tiny and has only 13 seats.

If you are gluten free in Tokyo, you have to come here full stop. It is worth the trip to Japan all by itself. Ramen, Kaarage, crepes - all things that are near impossible to find quality and gluten free anywhere else.

Amazing! One of my favorite gluten free places ever. Chicken is great and so is the ramen and the gyōza. Avoid the burger and go straight in for the Japanese food - it's amazing!

We had many meals. ..fried chicken, udon soup, okonomi-yaki, yakisoba noodles. ..and dessert too.All the food was incredible. Vegan and vegetarian choices too.Its on the 3rd floor. The owners are celiac, so they 100%get it. Only down side is they don't take reservations and it's very cozy inside with not much seating, yet quite busy when we arrived.

Huge servings! And amazing food! A Celiac meca for sure! It is a very tiny place on the third floor. It took us a minute to find it the first time. It’s sometimes busy but well worth the wait when there is one. We went here a couple times while in Tokyo. The sizes are much larger than anything else we ate in Tokyo. My favorite was the Banana burger. I enjoyed the Goyza, the pizza, the Karaage as well.

This restaurant absolutely saved me on my work trip to Tokyo. The food is divine; I wish we had something as good in NYC. Recommend highly the fried chicken, ramen and chocolate banana parfait. Took five meals to go plus my two items I ate for lunch — all only 50 USD. It’s also just so nice to meet friendly people who understand that the struggle is real in Japan for us!

What an experience! Some Of the best food we had while in Japan. Three of our party of seven are GF, so when I found this place on FMGF, I knew we had to check it out. We were NOT disappointed. The non-GF people in our group were amazed at how good the food was. My husband is still excited about his fried chicken burger two weeks later! And the pricing is quite good. My one and only complaint is that water glasses were not filled during the meal. It is a TINY restaurant and the staff was immensely busy as the place was full (13 seats). I suggest the staff leave a carafe of water at the table for people to refill their own water. What we got at our table: fried chicken burger, noodle soup, gyoza, seasonal (strawberry waffle). It was more food than we could handle and we shared our potato fries with our friends at the other table. The portions are liberal! I literally wish I could fly back to Japan right now just to eat there. If you are in Japan and you are GF, figure out the trains and get there! Then ask someone where it’s at because the sign is tiny and the restaurant is on the third floor of a very skinny building. I know that’s a lot of info not related to the food, but if you’re there, I don’t want you to miss this place! Dang. Now I want a strawberry pancake and fried chicken.

Food was AMAZING! Had a little bit of a hard time finding the place but our tour guide also loved it and my GF critical husband said it was amazing even for non celiacs! The gyoza was amazing, ramen and udon were delicious and our guide got the pizza and loved it. Also get the fries with pesto so amazing! I wish I could live in this restaurant

The ramen, fried chicken, and burger were great. The chicken and waffles were just ok, since they use frozen waffles. The seasonal ring dessert was amazing. The restaurant has maybe five tables, so it's very small. We were a party of six and were lucky to get the last two tables. Great gluten free option!

Very nice people and great food. They use rice flour for bread items. I did have a GF beer, which came in a glass, so I don't exactly what it was. Didn't taste like sorghum, so I'm GUESSING that it's a gluten-removed beer. I forgot to ask. It's a tiny place on the 3rd floor of a very narrow building. Stairs and elevator available. Since the owner or chef is celiac, I'm guessing that it's celiac friendly, but I'm not celiac so I don't know. I had no allergy symptoms after eating there.

It was so nice to enjoy some Japanese food while visiting Tokyo. I came with a group and the seating area is quite small. I would recommend keeping your group to 4 or less if possible. I had the ramen with gf soy sauce. It was delicious. The people I came with tried a few of the other options. They all can eat gluten, and they said the food was great quality. I absolutely recommend it!

100% gluten free restaurant. The owner has a wheat allergy and the chef has celiac. The menu lists items that are dairy free too. In addition to pasta and pizza, they also have gluten free gyoza, udon and fried chicken. The udon and fried chicken were really delicious. It's a cute little restaurant with only 4 or 5 tables. The owner is really nice and speaks a little English. I ate there three times during my trip and will definitely return the next time I'm in Tokyo.
