If you wanna eat more than 4, you can add for 400 yen per piece.

How to make a reservation

Get a numbered ticket by lining up on the day

There is no online reservation at this time, you need to get a numbered ticket side by side on the day.

The reservation both afternoon(11:00-15:00) and night(17:00-21:00) sections are accepted together in the morning.

If you wanna enter for lunch, you need to line up earlier to get the numberd ticket for lunch section.

What time should we line up in the early morning (weekend/holiday)?

Especially on weekends and holidays, the competition for reservations is fierce.

According to the official information from the restaurant, bookkeeping starts at 9:00, but unfortunately it will not be in time.

As my past few experience, if you want to go for lunch, you really should line up at 8:00 at the latest.

When I lined up from 8:10 before, there was only dinner section.

Those who come from afar will need to be especially careful about it.

When you receive the numbered ticket, you will be asked for the number of people and the desired time, so if you answer, you can finally get the numbered ticket.

Even if you have a lunch or dinner with someone, only one person is required to line up to get a ticket.

If you visit on weeday, I recommend to check restaurant's twitter page.

Because ”Hikiniku To Kome” always announce every day when finishing the reservation on the day, you will be able to know the current situation and the past trend of time remit in advance. (Language is in Japanese only...)
