Yudetaro restaurants use the meal ticket and self-service system. English menu is not available on the ticket machine. Many foods are displayed with pictures on the ticket machine.
First, you buy a ticket.
Next, you hand the ticket to the chef at the kitchen. When your food is prepared, the chef calls your ticket number in Japanese. You can wait for the food at your table, but if you are not good at listening to Japanese, it would be better for you to wait for your food in front of the kitchen.
Usually you wait for about 5 or 6 minutes for your food to be cooked.
