“Family friendly itzakaya”

Japanese Dining Watami Narita
Ranked #186 of 1,099 Restaurants in Narita
Cuisines: Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 December 2014

When my husband and I first started coming to Japan we didn't have the nerve to try restaurants and pubs (itzakaya) in basements or on upper floors. That now seems so silly, because it robbed us of the chance to experience wonderful itzakaya like Watami. Located close to Keisei Narita station and hotels like Mercure and Richmond, Watami is a warm, family friendly little pub that attracts a mostly Japanese clientele, although the English menu (a recent addition) makes things easy for Westerners. Once you have studied said menu you press a buzzer and a friendly waitress quickly appears to bring your drink and first dish. Then you keep buzzing and eating until you are done, which could be a while because the food is delicious and ridiculously cheap. We had drinks and shared 5 dishes for 39,000 yen -- and people say that Japan is expensive! This is a great little pub for couples, families or even lone diners.

Subterranean with smoking allowed didn't mix for a spectacular dining experience, but exhaust fans seemed to make it bearable. Large menu, unfortunately without English translation. Pictures and prices helped! Plenty of seafood dishes, grilled meat skewers, and a wide range of cocktails, beers and sake. Make you selection and press the button, to attract attention. Popular with locals and tourists alike.
