BISTRO KHAMSA, a gem in Jiyugaoka

Bistro Khamsa is the third jewel in the restaurant crown also including Bistro Ouef Ouef, in Futakotamagawa, and Le Bistro, in Ebisu.

When the notice came of the opening of Bistro Khamsa in Jiyugaoka, with Yuri Souma, (Sommelier), and Tatsunori Shinnobori, (Head Chef), we wasted no time to call in a reservation for Sunday lunch.
The restaurant’s design uses space well, with comfortable seating, and an interior d├ęcor with a Moroccan motif.  Yuri Souma and her team were professional and friendly, and Chef Shinnobori’s kitchen provided delicious options. Most plates from tables around us returned to the kitchen empty, and the venues mood was upbeat.
Here are some takeaways:
*Call in a reservation, the Bistro filled 15 minutes after the 12-noon opening and several groups were turned away.
*The prefix lunch and dinner sets offer the best value. You don't want to miss the salads, cold appetizer plates, and vegetable terrine.

Chef Shinnobori’s a magician with pork dishes, and his Moroccan “shio lemon” chicken will not disappoint.
*Yuri Souma pairs each course when we visit her Bistro and would be pleased to assist anyone upon request. Her choices of unique wines from Moldova and Bulgaria were exciting and fun.
*Special dessert plates for birthdays and anniversaries are prepared upon request. They brought our Father's Day plate with four dessert samplers and a sparkler.
