Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

There is a certain restaurant in the first bas**ent level of a multi-tenant building in one corner of a shopping street near the office district. The historical 70-year-old restaurant, marked by a sign with a picture of a cat, is called “Western Cuisine Nekoya.” This restaurant looks completely normal through the week, but on Saturdays, it opens in secret exclusively to some very unique guests. During these hours, doors in various areas of a parallel world open to allow customers of many different races and cultures into the restaurant. This “Restaurant to Another World” and its food hold an exotic charm to these highly diverse customers. This is a story of the heartwarming, once-in-a-lifetime encounters between our reality and another world, between the restaurant’s customers and its owner, and the food shared among them all.

Writing: 4.5/5

Read this slowly, and savor each and every chapter. This is a gem. Pure and simple. Short stories about other worlders coming through a magical door to a modern Restaurant.

(Update: Finished reading the available Chapters. I regret reading it in one sitting T_T There seems to be no more updates. I can't find anything. Please if anyone knows where I can read more, even if it's in raw form, I'll take it. Dear lord, I haven't been this hooked on a series in a... more>> long time. More so than action, drama, and magic, it's this sense of learning about each species and their preferences that makes this series so damn good. It really feels like, "Oh, I'm really learning about another world".) <<less

A story about doors of otherworld that connects and they dine in modern day restaurant every Saturdays. No plot whatsoever, yet, strangely captivating, attracting me to keep on reading. It certainly has it's own charm.

Gyaa...I wanna eat good Japanese food too right now. (... guru-guru-guru)

I had my doubts about this novel, but in the end I was s**ked in and found it pretty good. instead of someone reincarnating or someone being transported to another world.. a restraunt ends up having a door in another world where they serve modern food..

There's no real plot to this other then people from other worlds eating modern food... I recommend this to people who like light hearted novels.. and food. :)

If you liked the Bathroom Goddess concept, of people in a fantasy world peeping into the modern world through a portal, sounds interesting to me. (´ ▽ `) Haaa

I thought it would be weird when I first read the description, but when I started reading it, I couldn't stop. It's really nothing more than a modern restaurant serving otherworlders food, but it's strangely captivating.

It is such a sweet story. It is really short but man was every chapter such a nice read. Every person in this story had a backstory of some sort. Maybe they were feeling down or maybe they were nearly dying. In the end, that restaurant showed up for them with a lot of delicious food. When I finished reading it, I was sad that there was nothing left.

I absolutely love this story! The pacing is nice and the characters are all likeable. I was so sad when it stopped at CH.15 though. I searched around and found that the web novel is being translated and picked up at CH.16. So if you want to read the other chapters after CH.15 read the web novel.

This is a nice slice of life iyashikei series, and probably the only "food p*rn" series I could put up with reading. I recommend reading it a chapter or two at a time between other series instead of multiple consecutive chapters, though, because I can see it getting really tiresome if you try to read an entire volume in a day.
