We just had diner at Pound. The meet is absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is nice. Try to sit downstairs for more privacy is you feel like it. We would definitely recommend it!

High quality wagyu beef and excellent service. They speak very good English and it's in a convenient location, right next to the station. Our waiter Ota was very polite. I highly recommend this place!

The taste of meats was very good, especially Kobe-beef. This restaurant has steak, sushi, and some side dishes. They also have English menu. The atmosphere was really great, so I can highly recommend for both couples and families.

We ordered the premium beef sampler plate. The Wagyu beef was phenomenal. Service was nonexistent, distant, and rude for Japanese standards. They never responded to the "service call" button. Who cares, the meat was awesome at a decent price. 5 stars.

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

We'll give foreign tourists goods made of KIMONO! We offer deep flavored matured Japanese beef served by the pound. Complete a-la-carte menu also available. We also offer various types of wine which go well with Japanese beef. Meat allowed to mature for a certain period in drastic thermal and humidity conditions is known as dry-aged beef. The delicious flavors, strong and well fragranced, will capture you. In our restaurant, we offer matured Japanese beef as grilled meat for you to enjoy in various ways. We use black Japanese beef for the matured meat and use cows raised through original breeding methods, to add more marbled sections. We offer everything from standard cuts to rare cuts. Special private rooms for receptions and spacious rooms for banquets are available.
