Our meal was excellent--rice with vegetable korma and saag paneer (superior), raita, with an Indian salad to start. The naan was exquisite, very light, thin and slightly crisp. It's probably the best Indian meal I've had to date.

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
