Lunch for Small Children


My husband and I took the bite of the lunch and found that that not only children but also many adults would like those humberger steak, past and cheeze omulet.

Our children like those foods and ate up all of them on the plate.


Satsuma Omulet Rice



“Satsuma” is the name of the fudal province which existed in Kagoshima.

Kagoshima’s typical food such as chicken, shochu alchohol and black sugar are used in the lunch.



Japanese Hamburger Steak

Once restaurant staff poured special source on the steak, jucy smell of meat spread in front of me and stimulated my appertite.



The source is very nice.



Staff are very nice to our children. The restaurant has the good atmosphere where family can get relaxed.

We were glad that staff gave our children small toys as souvenirs when we left the restaurant.

Later we found that those toys belong to the lunch. Our chilren asked us to re-visit the restaurant many times on our way home.

Price of lunch of the restaurant is relatively high, but lunch itself is very delicious.

I recoomend you to have lunch at the restaurant at the special occasions such as birthday or anniversary.

The restaurant is worth of visiting!
