The famous kaiseki in town. Had lunch here during my last trip to Kyoto. Great selection of the seasonal dishes with beautiful presentation. The staff were polite and introduced us every dish in a very professional manner.

Excellent presentation and fine cuisine I've had in Kyoto. I rated it 4/5 as this branch is located in a huge complex where JR Kyoto Station is. Thus, it lacks the desired traditional Japanese building ambience, no garden of course. However, you can reserve a...More

We paid 120 Euros per person (around 140 dollars) for the Kaiseki menu to eat small pieces of fish and vegetables. So ridiculous. I felt cheated. I thought the Ikaseki menu should be a Japanese gastronomic experience, but this restaurant failed. Never go there again.

Paid 22000 yen excluding tax for a 9-course meal in a private room. Ingredients of good quality. Server was extremely polite and graceful. Spoke English as well, which was helpful and may have been because we booked online in English. No exceptional standout dishes, but...More

The dinner we had here was good and service was excellent as well. The restaurant allows young children if you book a private room, so that's what we did. The main dining area of the restaurant looks quite ordinary, so I can imagine some people...More

Outstanding, especially when choosing a private room. The tasting menu is quite expensive, there will something you won't really enjoy, but overall the experience is absolutely a must do for everyone willing to taste the real kaiseki dinner. Very expensive.

Came here on recommendation of the concierge at Granvia Kyoto Hotel. Booked the private room (thus an added premium). The price was on the steep side for their Kaiseki dinner for the quality and quantity of food we received. None of the ingredients justified the...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
