13. Restaurant Review: Hiramon Indian Restaurant

Hiramon no longer exists.

Hiramon is about a one minute walk from the South Exit of Shimokitazawa Station. It is just down the street from McDonalds and Starbucks (toward Baskin Robbins and KFC). It is located on the 5th floor of the ____ building (elevator goes up to the 4th, walk up one more flight).

The restaurant is a very small, simple place. There are about 6 tables.
