You order at the counter, find a seat and get your food, and/or beverages delivered to your seat. I think generally it's busy during the winter, nice days, etc. but my boyfriend and I went on a rainy, foggy, Saturday in December and it was easy to order and get a seat at a communal table looking out to the garden. Our pot of Sencha tea was brought out quickly and was perfect for the two of us to share. We ordered a few things because we were hungry so we shared the Udon, miso soup, Chicken Karaage and pork bun. They have a variety of other little snacks so you can grab just a bite and some tea or eat a proper meal with dessert if you're hungry like us. The soups (miso and Udon) were probably our favorites of the bunch. Let's be honest you don't really go to this place for the food. The chicken karaage had flavor but didn't have a good texture, it was soggy and felt microwaved. The pork bun was fine. Again the atmosphere makes it way worth it but maybe best to just get some tea and a snack.
