My Friends and I were in Kyoto looking for somewhere to have lunch when we happened by Raju. The owner was there and was so nice, friendly and spoke English. His place is the real deal! Great Indian food (veterinarian options for my friend) and great lunch specials. If you find yourself in Kyoto by Ginkakuji Temple, take the five... More

Nice place to enjoy Indian delicacies. Tasty preparations. The space inside is less and can not accommodate more than 10 persons. So if a large group turns in, it will be tough. Good Indian music also is played...Friendly service...

I stopped in here on a Sunday night since it was relatively close to my hotel. I got the special; tandor chicken, a curry, salad and a giant serving of naan. The food tasted fantastic, although it could have used a bit more heat. My only real complaint is that the seating area is a bit small, and so there's... More

The hotel concierge advised this restaurant within easy walking distance. The vegetarian food was excellent, great value for money, really fresh ingredients and were happy to tailor the level of spices to our taste. Having travelled in India this was really good authentic food.

Nice and friendly service. Good alternative to Japanese food if you are looking for something different. Off tourist path - we happened to be walking past on way to river from Gakakuji Temple.

Unassuming location and setting, located within walking distance to Tokyu Hotel Kyoto. Service wasn't speedy but food was very tasty and good value.

We were also a bit skeptical, since the place was empty when we rolled in for dinner. We totally enjoyed our meal here though - high quality ingredients, well prepared. Ordered a chicken dish and a palak paneer. Yummy kids portion of chicken curry. All served with a giant fresh serving of naan bread.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
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 with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
