If you are in Kusatsu Onsen and would like to eat some Chinese food, then Ryuen is the place to go.
Family owned and operated. Very friendly staff. There are usual selections and some interesting dishes.
Their home made giant Shumaj and Spring Roll are must have appetizers.
There is an in-house beer mister and he will pour you a perfect glass of beer (Japanese style).
Try Fresh Tomato Annindoufu (almond jello) for desert. It will surprise you.
Go early during busy holiday season or weekend since they run out of food often. There are table with chairs and tatami room seating. If you book your seat by the window you can over look Yubatake (center).

They tried to understand use (English), it was hard but the result was fantastic.
One of the best places in Japan.

This restaurant was poor from the get-go and not at all as you come expect in Japan where the standard of service is high and hosts welcoming. They make you stand on the steps with no greeting, acknowledgement or indication of how long the wait will be. After 15mins we were shown to a table only to find 2 to 3 other empty settings. The English menu is a limited selection of the local menu, even so they managed to bring a dish that we did not order and when questioned tried to pass it off as the one we had. It's a smoking restaurant with no segregation, tables on either side of us lit up. The steamed mushrooms and dumplings weren't bad but other dishes came out swimming in oil. Try elsewhere first!

Beautiful Japanese eatery with very reasonable prices. 暖 is located on the second floor. Rice with eel, BBQ chicken and ramen are all very nice!
