I've been going to Kiroko about once a month for lunch for the past year or so...often I have the entire counter to myself, with maybe two tables occupied. I've never seen it even 25% full at lunch.
Today, I walk in around 1:30pm hoping for a quick three hand roll lunch special BUT the entire bar was full as were all the tables!!!
I could only attribute it to Kiroko's high ranking on the Ultimate Poll and recent posts here.
Ended up having a decent Bento Box at Yashima upstairs.
