Upstairs is the yakiniku (an authentic Japanese-style table charcoal grill) where you can grill, or barbecue, your own food.
Chef Koichi Nakamoto excels in the kitchen making Japanese tapas-style dishes which are a fantastic way to sample a variety of different tastes and keep the prices down. Expect options such as deep-fried cheese gyoza in a soy-based broth, or pan-fried sliced beef and vegetables in a spicy miso soup. Upstairs, sample the kalibi wonders of tender beef (which you can cook to your liking) marinated in one of Maedaya's original sauces. There's also a selection of sides such as salted steamed green soybeans or pan-fried vegetarian dumplings, which are cooked in the downstairs kitchen, to complement your meal. These are best washed down with a glass (or two) of sake.
