The food was average and the staff was rude and brash. If you’re looking for a decent place with decent food, avoid this place.

Having had south indian food in over a dozen countries I can certainly say that the food was pretty average, but the fact that this is the only south indian restaurant in town makes it worthwhile!

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
