“Sooo good!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

I was wondering the streets on my first night in Kyoto, not knowing where to eat... Then looking lost ( im sure), staring at the board outside, a super friendly owner (i assume) popped out and said we have an english menu... Yay!!! I had the plum wine, which i just learned i love and the one if the best things i have tasted yet in Japan, the Tuna-Avo wasabi dish!!!! I could have eaten two bowls it was soo good!!!
I will definitely be going back there before I leave!!!

Super Super Good!!! And a great atmosphere to just chill out, even on your own... Owner is super friendly, def felt at home!!!

“Great place with great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Kyoto is known to be the place where the people are friendliest in all of Japan, and this is certainly true for Sugar Hill. The owner is really helpful to advise if you are looking for a particular taste. The menu has both Japanese and Italian options. The restaurant is also visited by local people which is certainly a good sign. We enjoyed the food very much.
Tip: If you are non-smokers, please notify the owner on arrival.

“A good restaurant, but it depends on what you order”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We had a very good start on our evening with a salad that was just fantastic (the sauce did the trick).
After that we ate the tuna roll (sushi style, but different) – was just ok. Then we had serrano ham with a bbq sauce which was a bit too sticky (and the slices where to big). After this we tried the chicken with a mustard sauce – which we liked, and it was perfectly done. So, our impression is that it depends on what you order – some dishes are really good, and some are not.

“Lovely food, lovely people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

On our last night of 5 in Kyoto we came here and wished we had visited earlier in our stay. The owner and the waiter (and the lady dining near us) were lovely and warm. The food was fantastic and very affordable. We recommend the tuna/avocado dish and the teriyaki chicken. The Cinderella drink is refreshing. We would definitely go back again.
