Check out this list of best Beppu restaurants that you should not miss on your trip to Beppu town!
Toriten, or chicken tempura, is a local dish in Oita, Japan. Thus, visiting Beppu without trying Toriten is a huge miss.
The most famous Toriten restaurant in Beppu is Touyouken, where this dish was first created. The restaurant was established in 1972, and the cook served the royal family. You can see many pictures and signatures of famous people who had meals here at the entrance.
Although it’s super famous, the price is affordable. Address:7 Chome-8-22 Ishigakihigashi, Beppu, Ōita Prefecture 874-0919, Japan
2. Naruto Udon
Looking for an excellent place to have Udon in Beppu? Head to Naruto Udon.
The food here is tasty, and the price is also really reasonable. A big bonus is that you can double or triple the size of your Udon without paying extra.
In addition to Udon, the restaurant also serves plenty of rice set menu and Soba. Also, don’t miss the Oden at the entrance. They’re delicious and enjoyable, especially in the wintertime.
Although the restaurant is usually full, you get served quickly after ordering.

It is a great place to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner since the restaurant opens 24 hours. The price is reasonable, ranging from ¥500 to ¥1000 per dish.
As the staff will most likely not speak English, you point at the dishes on the menu when ordering. The menu has both English and Japanese with pictures, so it’s easy to understand.
Also, don’t hesitate to order the Drink bar at Joyful. It’s definitely worth the money! You can get all-you-can-drink from soft drinks to coffee and tea. My favorite drinks are matcha milk tea and hot chocolate.
