Restaurants & Cafés


Botan’s charm lies in its history and classic wooden premises as much as its food. There’s only one thing on the menu, chicken sukiyaki, served in the old style. You will be well taken care of by matrons in kimonos, who bring glowing charcoal to the grill atop your low table, set a small iron dish on top, then begin cooking: chicken, onion, tofu and vegetables, all simmering in the rich, sweet house sauce.
