Why Ootoya Gohan-dokoro is special ?

Ootoya Gohan-dokoro (大戸屋 ごはん処) is national chain that has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years after reinventing itself. The president of the company decided to make a somewhat fashionable restaurant that would appeal to Japanese women (Japanese women are embarrassed to be seen in typical Mom-and-Pop type teishoku restaurant) and to make it cheap; to avoid expensive rents Ootoya avoids the first floor of a building, preferring the second. So, Ootoya is new and clean and very reasonably priced. Ootoya is already a hit with foreigners because it has expanded abroad with several dozen restaurants in South-east Asia.

We found this out of the way restaurant on the second floor not knowing what to expect. We were seated at a bbq plate and given an English menu and a door bell. The staff were very welcoming and a pleasure to deal wirh but not a word of English between them. Anyay we ordered a set menu and it was delivered. Great food and good value. I was hoping to see some fancy bbq cooking but the plate was only for keeping things warm. I'll go back to this restaurant. Good value!
