This centenarian restaurant, considered one of the best unagi (aka grilled eel) restaurants of Kyoto, proves its quality by the number of locals who frequent it. Our local tour guide recommended it for lunch. And we truly enjoyed the mouth-watering eel dishes that we ordered...More

We arrived here thru some Cantonese friends advise. Probably next time I'll stick to TA. Even than some reviews say that food is good, there are many others which strongly disagree. That was our case. The rice was dry. The eel not good enough. The...More

I have to say it is not bad, but maybe not so excellent as you think. And two people cost almost 5,000.

Pretty good unagi place. Found it via the Bib Gourmand and went for a relatively early dinner one evening. There was no wait and the restaurant is relatively large. There is an English menu, which always nice. We ordered the large unagi don with the...More

The restaurant has a very old traditional feel. The unagi rice was deliciously hot. Remeber to ask for the egg topping which was soft and fluffy omelette. Simply heavenly.

Kaneyo is probably one of the oldest Unagi (broiled eel) restaurants in Kyoto. The restaurant is apparently old-fashioned, but their eels taste good. This is maybe the most important thing! For lunch time, I recommend you to order Kaneyo-Don, eel on the top of boiled...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
