Although this restaurant is billed as an izakaya, the ambiance would suggest something else. It has a very upscale feel with it's dark hardwood floors and soft light. The bar area looks as if it came out of some chic New York club. The view from it is spectacular (overlooks the love motels) and with it's cozy little alcoves, makes it an ideal place for couples.

Favorite Dish: I have only eaten here twice, but there are too many things on the menu that are good. I will say that some of it is a little overpriced...even for Okinawa, but it all tastes really good so you don't feel cheated. The roast lamb with curry sauce is a must try. By the way, since it's an izakaya, the drinks are great. I love the omishu here.

Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Go through the Awase golf course on 85 through 3 traffic lights and just over the hill you will come to a "T" intersection. Take a left here and Bian will be the third building on the right. A parking attendant will wave you to where you need to park.
