I have had several dishes off the menu at NAKAU, but I think Simmered Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl (親子丼 Oyakodon) is the best choice.

This is chicken and egg over rice. Chicken, sliced onion and soft scrambled eggs are simmered in dashi soy sauce. This is sweet, creamy and juicy!
Delicious!

They also offer another similar kind Oyakadon as a seasonal dish.

Lunch Set Meals

Ticketing Machine 券売機 - NAKAU なか卯

They offer several kinds of lunch set meals that cost 500, 600, 690 or 790 yen.

Before I used the touch screen ticketing machine I changed the language from Japanese to English. Unfortunately, the items of the lunch menu were written in Japanese. But, don't worry it's a picture menu so you can easily understand what types of foods there are.

There is no picture of かきあげ丼 Kakiagedon. It is deep fried mixed vegetables on rice.

The lunch menu (items and prices) sometimes changed.

Discounted lunch set meals are available every day only from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

These prices are for dine-in only. and take out.

Deep Fried Chicken 唐あげ Salad サラダ - NAKAU なか卯

There was another set meal of fried chicken including miso soup and pickles, but I separately ordered the foods (pictured above) from a la cart menu.

To be honest.
The fried chicken was not my favorite as its taste and flavor were very bland. I put some dashi soy sauce but it was so-so.

I most likely will not order it again. However, some other foods at this restaurant did taste great.
