We had our hotel make us a reservation at Hitomi almost a month in advance, and still could only get a reservation at 9:30 PM. Totally worth the wait. This is a tiny, intimate restaurant - just a few tables in front of the windows,...More
I have been to various restaurants in Japan including three Michelin star restaurants and Yakitori Hitomi ranks right up there - I had one of the best meals there tonight. The chicken thigh is delicious and the Tofu is unmissable. I personally love the knee...More
Heard this maybe the best yakitori in Kyoto so have asked hotel concierges to reserve seats one month before our trip. Still we can only get a table at 0930pm. This one is so popular so you should reserve seats well in advance. The meal...More
My husband and I learned of Yakitori Hitomi from a review that we read in the New York Times. I'm happy to report that Yakitori Hitomi does not disappoint, it's absolutely fantastic. We live in New York City so we're in constant proximity to amazing...More
We’ve eaten here three times over the years, each time making a reservation well in advance (which is needed). The chicken is amazing, and if you get a counter seat you can watch the master at work which is brilliant. He is super friendly, as...More
I booked at least two months in advance. This is a very small yakitori, absolutely delicious. The staff could not have been nicer. The man cooking the chicken (likely the owner?) was very kind welcoming and generous.
Got this reservation through our hotel concierge, as they don’t have an online booking system or speak English.
We got there for 9pm and sat at the bar. It was very dark in the restaurant, many of the things we wanted to order had sold...More
I‘ve been to this place 3 years ago and couldn‘t stop telling my friends about this all chicken experience in Japan. Now finally 3 years later we made it to Kyoto and I could show them my favorite restaurant in Japan.
The food is outstanding...More
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at this yakitori spot. As soon as we walked in, the chef called out my name to personally welcome me from the kitchen behind the counter. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before, and I...More
My husband and I were lucky enough to get a reservation at the counter at Hitomi on a Friday night. Best. Yakitori. Ever. Also best service in Japan. Everyone was so sweet and warm, especially the chef. We ended up coming back on Sunday, the...More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
