Nagasaki (長崎市, Nagasaki-shi, Japanese: [naɡaꜜsaki]) ( listen (help·info)) is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "Long Cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and Churches and Christian Sites in Nagasaki have been proposed for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.

We tried all the recommended dishes and we considered the three-colour rice and egg soup okay but not among our favourites in Japan. Sashimi likewise was good but not amongst the very best we've had in Japan. Meal was also quite expensive at about 85,000 yen for three people. Restaurant was full with a queue so obviously very popular with the locals.

When we arrived, we were not sure we were at the right place. We were finally greeted by kimono clad servers and shown to our private tatami room that overlooked a garden.Everything was classically beautiful including the food. We chose a kaiseki meal and we couldn't have eaten another bite when we were finally finished. Very little English is spoken here, but we did fine with our limited Japanese. The food was delicious. This was an expensive meal, but a worth while experience.

It's not as sweet as some of the others...the chocolate and green tea are particularly good. Also, the place itself provides a good and unique experience, especially for tourists. It's not a restaurant. In fact, the storefront, while not hard to find...it's right across from the Kokaido-mae tram stop...is discretely marked, and when you walk in, it's kind of like an office. In fact, they seat you at a desk, and bring you tea and a few samples of cake. When you're ready to order, you tell the person what you want, and he/she wraps it up and brings it to you. It's definitely a high-end place, and you can get much cheaper castela in Nagasaki. But not nearly as good. (Here's a tip: freeze it and eat it frozen...I hope this isn't something that's frowned upon. But anyway, it's what I do, and it's great.)

Personally I thought this place has become overly commercialised for tourists. We didn't mind the champon, it was ok but definitely over-hyped. We ordered other typical Chinese dishes such as fried noodles, sweet n sour pork, etc. The sweet and sour pork came over fried and the other dishes were pretty bland.
Shikairo's saving grace is its reputation as the first restaurant to serve champon, and its gorgeous view. There's also a level which sorta serves as a champon museum.
Tip: Come slightly before typical meal times to avoid the buses of tourists that arrive.

We visited here around 1 after visiting the peace museum which is just around the corner. There was a a slight wait in line (which is always a good sign) and we were seated after around 20/30 minute wait. We ordered Chanpon, Nagasaki's regional dish which was delicious and filling. Would recommend to all wanting to try this dish. There is an English menu available.

A long queue was forming at 6, so we booked ourselves in and told to come back in one hour. Sounds good, it's a popular place!
Food however in this canteen style restaurant was basic.
Spring rolls, greasy. Beef and pepper was ok. They wouldn't / couldn't make fried chicken (which they had) with sweet and sour sauce, so ordered sweet and sour pork.
Most daunting was the noodles with onions which came as noodles, onions and sea food!
Wouldn't go back!

Bunmeido shops could be found all over Japan and products on sale in numerous outlets, supermarkets and airport duty-free shops. Well, visiting the main shop was quite an experience. Once we entered the shop, sales ladies started setting up coffee table with cold tea, refreshing towels and sampler of its famous Nagasaki Castella. A kind of service which I had never came across with.
Eggs, sugar, flour were carefully selected to make its cakes and desserts. Bunmeido’s castella and mikasayama (red bean paste cake) were our favorites.
Shop is easily reachable from Ohato or Dejima tram stop.

I give it 5 stars for the service the ability to help western people but more so for the quality of there Ramen. I'm going to say the best I have ever had was here.

Friendly izakaya with a good selection of dishes at a very reasonable price. Probably the best bet for late evening dining for foreign visitors to Nagasaki. No English menus, but friendly staff will make sure that you are looked after and explain what they have.

This Chinese restaurant is a well-known store which is located in Nagasaki Chinatown. It offers Nagasaki Chanpon noodle and sara udon noodle, and it privided standard, special, very special noodles. Very special noodles were 1500 yen. Dishes contained shark fin, clams, and scallops. I felt a flavor of the seafood in the soup. I felt that it was much rich taste. I thought that it was a little bit pricey, but I was satisfied because it uses a good ingredients.
