We ate here 2 times and it was wonderful. We had a red curry, kwetiau and stir fried vegetable dish. They all were very good. You can tell them how spicy you want it or you can add Chili's yourself.

Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto
is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with
its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the
