We came here with our Japanese friend and were quite lucky so as they lack a full English menu (they do have a English menu but its very basic in form and the details of how to eat the dish is not explained at all - even our Japanese friend was not aware of what to do with certain elements...

After several substandard meals in Kyoto (in other cities in Japan you can just pick a place at random and know it'll be pretty good, in Kyoto you can't), I decided to seek out a place in the guidebook and I'm sure glad I did, this was the best meal I had in Kyoto. I had a set containing their... More

We ordered their signature noodle set that comes with 7 kind of pickled vegetables with tempura. My husband prefers the hot udon and I like... More

This was on of the most delicious plates we had in Japan. We took chilled udon noodles. They are served with a sauce and many things to put in. The service is good and there's an english menu. You have the possibility to sit on chairs or on the floor (traditional japanese way)

After a morning of temples and walking the Path of Philosophy to Ginkaku-ji we sat down to a well deserved delicious meal. I ordered their speciality of soba noodles with 7 vegetables and cold broth (since it was a hot day), and my husband ordered the same but also with tempura. Be sure to add all of the vegetables and... More

Perfect meal for pre/post Ginkaku-ji & Philosopher's path. Hand made soba with well balanced broth (be sure to use the spices at the table to turn it up a notch or two!). Tempura was quality too!
