Niseko Pizza

We are a family friendly pizza restaurant with plenty of choice and welcoming atmosphere. We specialise in pizza and pasta but also have a delicious range of salads and sides and some mouth watering desserts! Now featuring a dedicated Anti-pasto counter serving freshly sliced, in house cured meats and cheeses from around the world and a luxurious new cocktail bar, there has never been a better time to visit Niseko Pizza!

We felt like pizza and read some good review on Niseko Pizza, but then I read some bad reviews later and wondered if we had made a mistake, we didn't! The inside is a surprise if you judge the restaurant by the outside. Nice ambiance inside, and we really enjoyed the food. I had the greek salad, the 4-cheese pizza and a delicious chocolate desert. It is not cheap (I see this in some of the other reviews), but it is Japan, in a ski resort, during ski season.... If you want cheap, quick pizza don't come here, but if you are looking for a nice meal and experience, include this place. We all had pizza, but the babyback ribs we saw others getting looked really good.

Tsubaratsubara

Reviewed By globetrotterCKY - Singapore, Singapore

We stayed in Popcorn lodge at Izumikyo, along the east village shuttle and niseko United bus route. Both buses stop right outside this restaurant.
Level 3 mild spice level is the typical Jap choice. We took level 5 and found it alright for one who like spicy food, and finished all the soup in the soup curry.
Ordered a meatball and a chicken leg soup curry for both of us (see menu pic). Comforting warming food after ab exhausting cloudy and challenging day on the slopes. About ¥3000 (including tax) for both of us.

Kamimura Restaurant

Kamimura has a great range of dishes. We loved the beef and fish sashimi, chicken terriaki, beef hot pot and fried rice with salmon. Deep fried tofu and citrus chicken hot pot not our favourites.

Bang Bang

Right behind Niseko Park Hotel along Hirafu-Zaka Street.

Reviewed By John T - Singapore

Been here 2yrs ago & last year as well..... twice I witnessed ugly scenes as the owner always seems to have trouble keeping email Reservations.
Twice I was there I overheard irritated
Customers arguing with the owner that they have receive email confirmation about the reservation only to be let down by the poor old owner telling them they need to double confirm again via phone or something like that... really pity the owner having to deal with angry disappointed customers
Now with online Reservations services the restaurant seem more peaceful today.....one thing to note even with online reservation they will ask u again to DOUBLE confirm the reservation few days earlier via email... don’t miss out the double confirmation email
Food is great btw!!

Asahikawa Ramen Tozanken

Reviewed By bjnomads - Beijing, China

A good spot for warming up after skiing. Ramen is excellent and the toppings are plentiful- the Asahikawa special ramen is recommended. There are gyoza, fried camembert (which is just ok) and a few other small plates to accompany. We went without a reservation around 630 pm and did not have to wait long for a table. Value is excellent , ramen cost is in the range of most places in Japan.

The snow crab legs were so fresh. Wagyu beef very good too. Very tasty. Very crowded. We lined up at 5:30 with no reservation and got in when they open at 6pm. Awesome dessert. The Mont Blanc chestnut cake was to die for. We went back a second night and food is still very good but no more Mont Blanc.

Be prepared to have your dreams of king crab crushed if you are more than 5 mintues late. Jokes aside the place is not for the feint hearted or prissy. It's a no nonsense eatery serving the freshest seafood prepared simply and with a good selection of wine. What more could you ask for?

Reviewed By stroggo - Hong Kong, China

Firstly, I just HAVE to mention the singer....she had such a BEAUTIFUL VOICE ........that I almost didn’t even hear the LOUD noise of a plate shattering on the floor (It was dropped by a little kid who had put more food on his plate than he could carry)
And.....after this little incident was over, I went back to listening to that soothing live music.
Kudos to the Piano player too ..... the music helped create a truly relaxing atmosphere.
Coming to the most important aspect... the FOOD of course!
It was a buffet and had a larger number of food choices than most other buffets you might come across. Thats obviously a plus point... if you’re a foodie like me.
Me thinks...THE BEST PART was the grill station where they had the the beef, Turkey, chicken, Squid, Scallops and Abalone.
At this station, the seafood was placed in shells and then presented over little PEBBLES.... ABSOLUTELY loved this presentation... (see attached image).
Other than that, there were various other stuff to try such as Fried rice with Prawns and Mussels (ANOTHER standout), pastas, lamb curry, grilled mackerel/salmon.... the list goes on.
There was also a kids section (mostly potato wedges and fried chicken).... and a FRUIT/SALAD section with decent selection of fruits .... but a CARNIVORE like me wouldn’t even go near that section....
The staff were quite friendly. The Seating and the lighting were prefect.
The standouts were obviously the: 1) Live Music and 2) that Grill station I mentioned above.
These 2 reasons should be enough for visiting MELT....whether you are staying at The Hilton or elsewhere in Niseko.

Prativo

Reviewed By Faith_Liu - Singapore, Singapore

Came here for lunch on a Thursday before noon and we did not have to wait for a table. The set lunch is a main which also gave you access to a salad bar. Although it doesn’t seem like a lot of variety and the portion for the mains looked quite small, we went away feeling satisfied. I particularly liked the potato gratin and potato salad which gave me some carbs since my mains was mostly protein (chicken and beans in tomato sauce) although it did come with bread and butter. Drinks and dessert were also included and I really liked the cake the yoghurt drink. It was about 1550 Yen for adults and 800 Yen for kids and I think makes for a very good lunch which was not too expensive.
