Pets accompanying guests are allowed on the terrace. It is about a ten minute on walk from JR Minakami Station.

    The mushroom curry topped with cheese disappointingly tasted like it came straight out of a can; it has nothing at all in common with Indian style curry. Relaxed atmosphere. Tables and chairs...
