    Cafe Wakaya: Bohemian Coffeehouse and Gallery

    by robertbaum Updated Sep 23, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cafe opened on July 19, 2008 and the gallery space on October 21st, 2008.

    Both are located in a rather colonial style than Japanese looking building, the cafe on first and second, the gallery on third floor. The interior is very spacious with a high ceiling. The furniture on ground floor is very simple. On the upper floor you can relax on soft leather chairs and a three table wide sofa.

    They open daily from 11am-7pm, but are closed on Mondays. If a Monday is a public holiday they close the following day as well.

    Favorite Dish: The dessert set (デザートセット; deza-to setto) including coffee and cake for 850 Yen is the best value for money.

    I also love their coffee mocha.

    If you are looking for more, they offer a lunch menu (デリカランチ; delika lanchi) for 1350 Yen as well.

    Ariha: Indian Curry, Naan and Tandoori Chicken

    by robertbaum Updated Aug 14, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were quite surprised to find even an Indian restaurant in Iga Ueno so we immediately decided to give it a try. The Indian cook is still quite young and got his license to open the restaurant in September 2008.

    We chose the Tajmahal and Maharaja set for dinner, each 1300 Yen. Although the curry itself is quite delicious it basically consists mostly of gravy and we were expecting something more in it than just two pieces of meat or shrimp.

    Favorite Dish: But nevertheless the lunch menu from Monday to Friday for 590 Yen, 700 Yen or 900 Yen seems to be good value for money, so I recommend going there at lunch time.

    Hours of business: 11:30 am - 2:30 pm, 5 pm - 10:30 pm, closed on Mondays

    The owners are very fond of ethnic food and serve different small dishes selected from 15 countries.

    They very much like foreigners and during their free time they give Japanese language classes to foreigners in the Fureai Plaza called community centre of Iga-Ueno.

    The restaurant opens every day from 5-10:30 p.m. It closes on sundays and every first saturday each month.
