Excellent food and great value for money! Went for the dinner course and every of the 7 dishes was delicious. Service and atmosphere was top notch, too.

The waiter didn't understand much English and got the order wrong and even forgot one main dish. The steak was good but the food was not hot when served. I would say average, but won't be back again.

Must try the iced matcha latte, matcha soda and hot pot variety with the taro rice. Only regrettable dish was the miso aubergine - was not fried :(

We recently had dinner at this restaurant. The restaurant's staff were attentive and kind, and despite language difficulties, provided a very good service. The food came quick and was very delicious.

This place is really popular - we managed to get a seat after a short wait on our first visit but missed out on the second because people were queuing out the door. We had retuned following two successful dinners on a trip to Kyoto...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
