Update: Kota's Kitchen has changed its name to Aki's Kitchen, while the menu and prices stay the same. 

This cosy but buzzing Beatles-themed yakitori and shochu izakaya serves innovative Japanese comfort food, like the stunning braised pork belly and beef sashimi. Also worth trying are the home-made fruit shochus. The service is some of the most charming in town. Seating is limited, so book early or be prepared to wait for a table.
