A cosy curry restaurant that’s drawing a crowd!

My brother in law’s parents, Masao and Katsuko Inaba, run a little curry restaurant, Zakkaya, at the bottom of their home in Soshigaya, Setagaya, a suburb of Tokyo.

This dynamic duo who both come from artistic backgrounds, Masao in metal design (yep he designed and made the outer metal layer that you can see of their house/restuarant) and Katsuko in weaving and textile design, have travelled extensively around South East Asia where they fell in love with spices and decided to set up their own spicy restaurant concentrating mainly on Malaysian inspired cuisine and spices.

On our last visit not only was it a great opportunity to catch up with them but we also got to sample their delicious recipes.

While the restaurant is small and intimate it has been lovingly decorated with artifacts and treasures they have collected on their travels. And, never fear, the welcome and service you will get is warm, friendly and heart-felt! And, the food is delicious.

Zakkaya has won a number of awards including Best Asian Curry Restaurant 2010 and 2011.

Whilst it may be a little bit out from Tokyo central (about 30 minutes by train) Zakkaya is well worth the visit – of course I’m not biased in any way 😉

But, remember, if you are planning on making a visit then you will need to book ahead as they usually have a long waiting list both for lunch and dinner! See the Fab-Finds page for details.
