Mizuho Kudo, a food blogger, praised the restaurant after her visit. She ordered a hamburger and was slightly disappointed, but relieved that her order was correct. Her friend however, didn’t get the order she wanted and was served dumplings instead.

However, Kudo thought the food was delicious and had a great time interacting with the waiters, who seemed to enjoy working there.

The purpose of the restaurant is to help people better understand those who suffer from dementia and how they can function in society.
