“Really lovely food in a great environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We came across this place and really enjoyed it. A previous reviewer said it is Japanese/Thai fusion which is completely wrong (he or she doesn't know food). It is actually very authentic and very good Thai. And why would you worry about staff not making eye contact. Lovely cosy restaurant with great food and great service. The owner gave our 11 year old daughter a pack of delicious coconut biscuits when we left. Really top spot and highly recommended.

“Stick with Japanese...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled across this nice looking little Thai place while walking around on our first night in Kyoto. After going against our instinct and choosing a restaurant that we hadn't researched - proved to be the wrong move.

The staff avoided eye contact and barely got to taking our order and it took them some time to offer us drinks and take our order.

The food that we had was not very good and was a Thai / Japanese fusion.

The restaurant aethetics are really nice though an I would only stay if you can get a table on the balcony - the view might keep you busy so you don't worry about the restaurant.
