Thank you for the review. Was lassi very very thin? Our restaurant's lassi is thicker than the other restaurant. It is the first time we heard our lassi was thin in 33years of our Career. We are showing all price of menu on website or...More

This is a fantastic place for Indian food if you are in Kyoto Japan area. They have a good selection for the set menu. I have also tried the biriyani, Rasam, Butter Chicken and honestly I was underwhelmed by it. Good place to dine

This is an exceptional Indian restaurant in Kyoto. We loved the Kachumbar salad and the Chicken Pakora starter and the main courses were incredible. Prawn Marsala and Chicken Tikka with extra spice. Both were outstanding. Don’t miss the Kulfi and homemade coconut ice cream.

This is a good place for grabbing lunch if you are in the downtown area. They have a good selection for the set menu. I have also tried the biriyani and honestly I was a little underwhelmed by it. It wasn't bad per say, but...tasted more like fried rice than biriyani.More

It is the closest Indian restaurant to the Kyoto Okura hotel. They open for lunch at noon and will shoo you away if you reach a few minutes early. The set meal with 2 curries is more than adequate for the average Indian stomach. The...lassi is good; samosa strictly average. Service is adequate.More

We can’t echo the words of previous reviews enough - lovey Indian food great service and reasonable prices, for Japan. The owner is Japanese but travels widely and walks the ‘shop floor’ checking on your wellbeing. The serve Indian wine which is actually ok. I...had the Sauvignon blanc which was a nice change from the Chardonnay largely served in Japan and you got a European measure! We ordered the mixed grill which was delicious and plenty for two of us and then a main course and side dish plus sundries to share. If you fancy a change from Japanese or something spicy I recommend this!More

Great Indian restaurant; North Indian dishes, also many great spicy choices on the menu. We have visited many Indian restaurants and were very satisfied. Friendly service - recommended.

Visited this restaurant with my husband and children (my son is 15 and my daughter is 11) since we were craving Indian food after a couple of days in Kyoto. Since we are of Indian origin ourselves, though we live in the US, we weren't...sure what to expect from an Indian restaurant in Kyoto, especially since our children our picky eaters. But the food was simply outstanding, as was the service. My husband ordered a non-veg thali and my son got the veg thali. My daughter and I ordered the saag paneer, dal makhni and garlic naans. I also tried the bhindi masala and the chana masala off my husband's thali and the butter paneer from my son's. Everything was absolutely fresh, piping hot and mouthwateringly delicious. Usually at least some of the gravies at restaurants overlap and you feel like you're eating the same gravy over and over again with vegetables substituted in. Not here! Each dish was unique and flavorful and superbly prepared. The naans were melt in your mouth - crispy on the outside and soft once you tore them. Would've loved to dine there again but unfortunately didn't get a chance. The service was warm and friendly and they even sent a staff member downstairs after we were done eating to hail a taxi and he stayed to see us off politely. Rare to see such outstanding and friendly service anywhere. Only wish they had a branch in San Francisco!! Highly recommend!!More

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

Wouldn't know. But there is a website with their menu. Google Mughal Kyoto. It was not out of the ordinary in terms of price.
