The food was incredible, we had the chefs recommendation. We arrived very earlier (at opening time) and were offered a table, a few minutes later the small restaurant was full. It was 50% locals, 50% fellow trip advisor tourists. Many people were in line waiting outside. If you like Gyoza, I would highly recommend waiting, it is worth it!! Some... More

We came here for a late dinner (around 8:30) and were the last group to be seated for the night. It seems the restaurant stays open until the food is gone, so I recommend going a bit earlier than we did. The place is very small (maybe 15 seats total) and as such we waited for about 45 minutes for... More

I was the only person in line and was told 30 min wait. After 45 min and 5 people had come out, I was still not seated and was just left there with no one checking on me. I left as I felt I was not welcomed due to being a foreigner. Weird after reading all the good reviews Too... More

Beautifully handcrafted and cooked to perfection. Comes out on a sizzling iron plate so you know they are fresh and hot. A must try. Average spend per person is ¥1900

A tiny place hidden away upstairs, but definitely worth finding. The set menu is a great range of dumplings and good value

Anzukko is a tiny little bar on the second floor hidden down an alley in downtown Kyoto. Small and cosy, the perfect place to kick back. We opted for the smaller Chef's recommendation menu and it was outstanding. There were at least 7 different Gyoza variety started with a grilled of baked Gyoza which were probably the pick of the...

We had their signature gyoza pan, their camembert cheese gyoza, green salad with crispy anchovies and a seasonal fruity sake. Everything was amazing, especially the gyoza. It was perfect for a cold winter evening. The place is run by two friendly Japanese ladies. They gave us a free appetizer since we had to wait over half an hour to get... More

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
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 local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
