Despite what is written on TripAdvisor and the queue outside - we had to wait for about 30minutes to get in - this gave us the experience of a tourists snare. The beef and chicken is of no quality, just average to be really kind....More

Maybe it was just the timing of our arrival, maybe they were short staffed, maybe it was the bizarre order in which things were done in terms of organisation. After about an hour and twenty minutes we were in. The food and atmosphere are great,...More

This place changed beef for me forever. Get the most expensive cut and have the best beef of your life.

We really enjoyed getting our red meat fix at Aje Kiyacho Donguri, after a couple of weeks of mainly seafood and veg. This is a really lively place, great people watching, enthusiastic, fast moving staff. Would definitely revisit.

It's our favourite haunt for supper every night if we can when we are in kyoto. The meats are super great! We always go for the special meat, hanging tenders, which runs out very fast. It's always crowded and queue can get quite long.

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
