‘Chi-ran’ is a very popular restaurant. The first one was in Akatsuka, tabashi-ku. And it was moved to Ginza. The restaurant was very popular even for a short term. It was a must for the local gourmets, especially Szechwan-lovers.
It is already five years since the restaurant had to be moved from Ginza to Kagura-zaka because of the reconstruction of the building. Compared with the big restaurant with a big capital, this tiny 126-square-meter one is small indeed, but soon became as busy as before.
The most-efficient floor space for the general Chinese restaurant in Japan is considered 397 square meters. It is 331 square meters if the washroom is outside and shared. Once-reported here, Iwaen in Kasumigaseki is as wide as 327 square meters with the outside washroom. Well, we would like to disclose the secrets of success in Chi-ran, Kagura-zaka.
