I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a Japanese curry place – before arriving at Dechibica, I had pictured the ugly brown curries I had seen at some of the Japanese fast food curry places. But Dechibica was nothing like that.
This was a gourmet experience for the tummy and for the eyes – the presentation was so beautiful I barely wanted to eat it!

As with most places in Okinawa (which my friend pointed out), they could decide to close early or just close for the day without telling anyone. So, it’s often suggested you call before setting out.
And according to Okinawahai, the restaurant now accepts Dollars as well as Yen.
I picked a combination of 2 curries for my meal (the avocado curry, which is a vegan option, and the mild chicken curry). The avocado curry was tomato-based (with slices of avocado on top) and tasted a bit like really fresh bolognese sauce (it was remarkably good!). And the chicken curry was creamy and delicious too.
All the food comes on one tray, but the tray is packed full of a variety of colorful small eats (from salads to pickled vegetables to root vegetable mash to tofu).
Here’s their menu (they also have special items on some days): http://dechibica.com/menu
Dechibica is very vegan and vegetarian friendly, but even though I don’t often enjoy vegan and vegetarian restaurants, I really enjoyed my meal here.
And the decor is really nice too.
