Amakusa, located in the heart of Ginza, serves the best authentic Japanese food from Kumamoto prefecture. The amazing quality of the food is incommensurable and the staffs that serve with the first class service to all customers in this restaurant makes its "already high quality" even higher. You would realize at the appetizer, where you will meet their outstanding salad dressing that makes you completely speechless, how perfectly balanced the ingredients for the dressing they select to mix while keeping such freshness of the vegetables. We loved the tomato sherbet in this salad with a bit of salt on top that was quite creative too. Then the rare precious parts of the branded raw chicken meat from Kumamoto prefecture placed on the beautiful long wooden board served with their special made soy sauce with wasabi, the pork meat grilled on the iron plate served with both miso paste and ponzu sauce mixed with grated daikon, and the most popular menu in this restaurant which is the unthickened stew of chicken called "shirataki", leaves everyone at the table nothing but the great big smile. We also liked the good use of the lightings at the table that makes the stylish well-coordinated ambience, and of course, the staffs that give you full support to make your night unforgettable. Amakusa is a very popular restaurant that always makes the locals happy. We would recommend you to make reservation before you go.
