This is not a traditional restaurant, the multitalented owner is a gem in Nara.
He handles the reservations, selects the menu, cooks the food, waiters the drinks and does the dishes.
The room has seating for maybe 8-14 people in total so don’t expect to just walk by and be able to have a bite here but make a reservation beforehand. This can easily be done by phone or mail in English.

The food is delicious and non-regular in a positive way. He is able to transform regular tofu into a tasty treat. The tapas is a great set of smaller bites. The chef can be flexible when it comes to vegetarians or pescatarians.

It is not cheap and not expensive and a recommendation to food lovers.

Came in for a bite on the way to Nara park, food is delicious! Explanation is provided for the food on how it was made. The restaurant is only enough seating for 10 to 12 people, so best to make a reservation before hand. Luckily I was able to walk in while passing by. Great spot and would recommend to give it a try if you are in the area.

Visited this charming restaurant after reading great reviews. The chef was very kind and patient, taking time to review the menu and ask if we had any special requests or food allergies. He offered us his homemade tofu for an appetizer and it was the best tofu we had ever had! In addition to delicious food and exceptional service, the restaurant itself was quite endearing with an inviting ambiance and very unique tableware. We really enjoyed our time at Terakawa!

We just eat there yesterday night because of the good reviews. I had amazing udon with fried chicken. I thought I found the best chicken ever earlier this day... Boy I was wrong!
Really move place and on top of that it's really not expensive.
