On sunny days there is outside seating where you can sit with a drink and watch the park action. There is a large range of good value Japanese meals, including gyudon and fried chicken. The restaurant itself is laid out with comfortable booth seating, and there is also a small accessary shop selling sunglasses, suncream, waxes, neckwarmers and more. Drop in for some pancakes and a coffee!
