We couldn’t get into more intimate restaurants as we hadn’t booked, so walked around, stumbled upon this menu and went upstairs to this amazing restaurant! What a delightful surprise - we ordered the set meal and were treated to a variety of wonderful fresh food. The quality was excellent, meals came out very quickly and the service was second to none.

The atmosphere in this restaurant was quiet, warm and inviting... we had a fantastic view of the street below and watched the hustle and bustle whilst we ate in peace. The decor was tasteful. The price was very reasonable and was the icing on this little cake!

Thank you!

Very impressed. Excellent selection of Japanese food and value for money prices. Nice ambience and great service. Such a great find after wandering the boutique tourist traps of Gion.

When in Kyoto you'll probably be visiting Gion district where there are lots of restaurants and places to eat. And you'll notice how full those places are in no time. But. Taking a step out of Gion towards Gion-Shijo subway station you'll find a restaurant that's worth visiting.

Great service, delicious food, classical music (!) and voila! You've just enhanced your Kyoto experience with a good Japanese meal.

This restaurant is a great option to taste japanese food in a great place with an average prices. The soba or udon are very nice, all the types. Excellent service.

We had a 4600yen Shabu Shabu set in the above restaurant. It consists of many types of vegetables, a pack of udon and some beef. The soup itself is not very salty or sweet, but after boiling some of the vegetables and beef, the food becomes a bit oily and sour (I don't know why). However overall this is still a good choice despite the rather high price.
